Description And Comments

TRON Lightcycle Power Run is an elevated, high-speed, indoor/outdoor roller coaster in which riders sit as if on a motorcycle, while they rocket past scenes that simulate being inside a computer (and one with neon lighting at that).

TRON’s ride vehicles are set up as 14 semi-detached light cycles, with seven rows of two cycles each. Riders must lean forward slightly to hold on to the cycle’s handlebars. Once seated and out of the ride’s loading zone, riders are launched like a catapult into the ride’s first set of turns. An impressive set of video effects surrounds the rider through most of the journey.

TRON is most similar to the Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster over at Hollywood Studios, which is also a catapult-launched, indoor coaster. TRON is by far the most intense coaster in the Magic Kingdom, although it doesn’t have any loops or inversions. If Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Splash Mountain, or Big Thunder Mountain give you pause, skip TRON.

Touring Tips

TRON Lightcycle Power Run will be one of the Magic Kingdom's hottest rides once it comes online. It may be available only by joining a "Boarding Group" via Disney's virtual queue system or by purchasing an individual Lightning Lane access.

If there is a standby queue, expect hundreds of theme park guests to head straight for it as soon as the park opens. If you're an off-site guest, it's possible that a thousand or more guests will already be in line ahead of you before you arrive at the attraction.

If you're staying on-site, your best bet for riding with minimal waits is to arrive at the Magic Kingdom at least an hour before official opening. As soon as you're admitted into the park for Early Theme Park Entry, head for Tomorrowland and ride TRON. Once you're done, ride Space Mountain nearby if the wait is 15 minutes or less.

If Early Theme Park Entry isn't an option, try TRON in the last hour the park is open, or during lunch or dinner. Expect long waits at almost any time of day.
