New Look at TRON Lightcycle / Run in Magic Kingdom
Today is the 40th anniversary of “TRON,” the 1982 film that first introduced us to the digital gaming world known as the Grid. This film and its sequel, 2010’s “TRON: Legacy,” are the inspiration for one of the most-anticipated new attractions at Walt Disney World Resort!
TRON Lightcycle / Run, is starting to light up the skyline in Tomorrowland. The new attraction is in the testing phase and will be one of the fastest coasters in any Disney park.
The attraction's story picks up following the events of “TRON: Legacy,” whose main character, Sam Flynn, is now opening new gateways into this digital realm at specific locations around the world. The first portal he created is at Shanghai Disneyland with the original TRON Lightcycle Power Run, and now Magic Kingdom guests will get their turn through this second gateway.
If you want to learn more about this fascinating digital world, both “TRON” and “TRON: Legacy” are available now on Disney+.
