Description

Tron Lightcycle Power Run (also known as TRON Lightcycle / Run) is a semi-enclosed launched steel motorbike roller coaster attraction at Shanghai Disneyland, and an upcoming attraction at the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World. Based on the Tron series, the attraction takes guests on a ride through the Grid on their own light cycle.

History

The Shanghai Disneyland ride debuted along with the rest of Shanghai Disneyland on June 16, 2016.The Magic Kingdom version of the attraction was originally scheduled to open by Walt Disney World's 50th anniversary in Fall 2021, but as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the opening date has been delayed to 2022. It was first announced at the D23 Expo on July 15, 2017 as part of the unveiling of 23 improvements to Disney Parks, including 4 new rides across the theme parks.

Design

In Shanghai Disneyland, the attraction is located inside, underneath a color-shifting canopy in Tomorrowland. The planned Magic Kingdom port of the attraction will be placed in a completely new section of Tomorrowland to the north of Space Mountain. The Magic Kingdom version's official name was revealed as the Tron Lightcycle Run.The coaster's track takes riders inside and outside the attraction's building, reaching speeds of nearly 60 miles per hour (97 km/h)—the fastest for any Disney roller coaster.The attraction's motorbike-styled vehicles were created by Walt Disney Imagineering as a method of specializing individual rider experience. The ride was then given a Tron-theme because the ride vehicles resembled the lightcycles featured in Tron and Tron: Legacy. When aboard the ride vehicle, riders lean forward and grip a set of handlebars. A pad situated behind the seat secures the rider in place.
