The entrance to the upcoming TRON Lightcycle / Run roller coaster has been lit, showcasing the themed elements that transport guests into The Grid.
The signs hanging from the entrance tunnel were added earlier this year, while the semi-circle and suspended machinery were installed recently. The machine and design over the doorways represent the device digitalizing you and sending you into The Grid.
The Grid is the digital world where TRON takes place. The premise of the ride takes guests aboard Lightcycles, the iconic vehicles from the films. Disney’s description of the attraction reads, “Lean forward into the ultimate race of survival! Leave the real world behind and join Team Blue in an epic quest across the Grid—the dark, computerized world with no horizons from TRON. Here, there’s no limit to the excitement.
Climb aboard your very own Lightcycle and take off on a high-speed adventure, racing against the Grid’s most menacing Programs. Surge past your fierce opponents as you attempt to cross through 8 Energy Gates and secure your team’s victory—so you can survive to race another day.”
The elements are now lit in the neon blue now synonymous with the franchise.
On the other end, progress continues to slowly move forward on the pathways.
The crews are working on preparing and paving the different walkways through the area.
Work continues near the tunnel for the Walt Disney World Railroad. We were able to see the train finally use these tracks and tunnel yesterday.
