Turns out those rumors were indeed true! The TRON Coaster that has been so popular over at Shanghai Disneyland will be making its way to Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom.
This new attraction will be situated in a brand-new location in the park, next to Space Mountain and extending past the railroad tracks. Fans of the Tomorrowland Speedway, don’t need to fear; concept art shows that the Speedway will remain.
From the artwork, it also appears that the Tomorrowland Transit Authority Peoplemover, the Tomorrowland Light and Power Company (otherwise known as the Space Mountain gift shop), and the Walt Disney World Railroad will remain intact.
The TRON Lightcycle Power Run attraction at Shanghai Disneyland is a coaster-style attraction where riders board a train of two-wheeled Lightcycles and race through the game grid and beyond. The attraction shares the excitement that can be found in TRON’s high-tech universe and is one of the most thrilling adventures at any Disney park.
Disney plans to open the TRON attraction in time for Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary in 2021.
