‘Tron’ ride confirmed for Disney World by 2021, going in Tomorrowland, next to Space Mountain

Tron is coming to the Magic Kingdom.

Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Bob Chapek announced at D23 that the popular Tron Lightcycle Power Run attraction that debuted at Shanghai Disneyland last year will be making its way to the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World.

Fans were surprised to learn that it won’t even be replacing an existing ride, but will be in a new space in Tomorrowland.

The Tron ride will be located next to Space Mountain, the famous headlining coaster that’s been there since the ’70s, changing the area’s skyline (and adding another E-ticket attraction).

In Shanghai Disneyland, the Tron ride features neon lights, taking riders indoors and out on lightcycles inspired by Tron and Tron: Legacy. The ride makes use of extensive visual effects, sudden speed boosts, and immersive lighting to create an experience that is unlike any other roller coaster on the planet.

Below is a video clip from that ride.

The Tron ride was long rumored to be taking over the Tomorrowland Speedway, a slow-moving children’s car ride that has been with the park since its opening day.

There’s no set date for the Tron ride to open at the Magic Kingdom in Disney World in Orlando, Florida, but it’s not said to in 2021 – the park’s 50th anniversary.
