D23: Tron Coaster Coming to Magic Kingdom in 2021

Tron Coaster Coming to Magic Kingdom in 2021

Bob Chapek, Chairman of Walt Disney Parks & Resorts, announced at D23 this weekend that a Tron-themed attraction will be coming to Magic Kingdom‘s Tomorrowland.

Set to open during Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary in 2021, the TRON Lightcycle Power Run is a coaster-style attraction where riders board a train of two-wheeled Lightcycles, similar to the cycle game from the original movie.

It will sit in an entirely new area right next to Space Mountain. From the artist rendering above, it appears the Tomorrowland Speedway will not be affected, nor will the Magic Kingdom Railroad – it looks like the Tron attraction will straddle the train rails.

Here is a video look at the Shanghai Disneyland version of the Tron coaster to give you an idea of what to expect:

I am so-o excited about this. From what I’ve seen and heard of this ride, I was despairing the only way I’d get to experience it was a trip to China. Now it’ll be in my backyard, so to speak. What do you think? Let us know in comments.
