Ride Vehicles for brand-new attraction spotted on their way to Magic Kingdom

We’ve been watching updates about the construction of the TRON Lightcycle coaster at Magic Kingdom ever since it was first announced! And if you’ve been to Magic Kingdom at all in the last couple of years, you’ve been able to witness the progress of the construction firsthand, especially if you look from aboard a car at the Tomorrowland Speedway.

Yep, those are definitely NOT Guardians of the Galaxy ride vehicles!

During the 2019 D23 Expo in California, one of the TRON Lightcycle Power Run ride vehicles was on display. Let’s compare the two to see for sure if that’s what’s under the plastic. What do you think?

The arrival of ride vehicles we’re closer than ever to the opening of Magic Kingdom’s newest thrill ride attraction!  Once ride vehicles are installed on the tracks of the coaster, further testing can begin on the experience itself.

The TRON Lightcycle Power Run experience is already enjoyed by Guests at Shanghai Disneyland. The attraction is based on the 1980s futuristic flick, TRON.

Disney’s Shanghai Disneyland Resort website calls TRON Lightcycle Power Run the “ultimate competition:”

“Experience high-speed thrills and chills as the Grid comes alive in a heart-pounding race for survival. Created as a friendly way for “Programs” and “Users” to interact, the Power Run pits team against team in the quintessential quest to capture 8 Energy Gates and triumph over opponents.

Prepare for digitization after entering the portal—this is your access into the energy, lights, and excitement of TRON’s high-tech universe. As you leave the real world behind, you’ll proceed to the games as a member of Team Blue, ready to compete against some of the Grid’s most menacing Programs.”

We anxiously await the opening of the newest coaster at Magic Kingdom since Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, which opened in May 2014 as a part of the New Fantasyland expansion project.

About Becky Burkett

I'm an enthusiastic writer who finds joy in random things like cold weather, snow, "I Love Lucy," "The Andy Griffith Show," journals full of blank paper, countdowns to Christmas, the month of December, "Toy Story," "Sleeping Beauty," my 4 kids, my 4 shih tsus, Disney Parks history, Imagineering and visiting the parks. I think Walt Disney is the standard against which genius should be measured. I love to write about Disney Parks, Disney history, all things Imagineering and PIXAR. I adore the colors, story and art direction of Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" (Team Make it Blue!), and "Toy Story" is life (minus "Toy Story 4"). I believe Walt Disney was so much more than an entertainment and theme park tycoon; I believe he was a savant with a vision for life and how it could be if happiness and kindness are strived for. I love Biergarten at EPCOT and 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian. You can find me croonin' with the birdies at the Enchanted Tiki Room, chillin' on the PeopleMover or hangin' with Woody and the gang at Toy Story Land. I'm always looking for Imagineers in the parks, and I'd rather meet Joe Rohde and Tony Baxter than anyone in Hollywood! Hey, if you dream it, you really can do it!
