First announced at the D23 Expo in 2017, the Magic Kingdom variant of Shanghai Disneyland’s TRON: Lightcycle Power Run has taken five years to complete, with COVID-19 being the result of some delay. The space over the Walt Disney World Railroad tracks between Space Mountain and the Tomorrowland Speedway has been the site of activity and target of eager eyes for quite some time. But now, there is more finishing touches to enjoy.

Walt Disney Imagineering announced this latest addition today, showing the new sign on Instagram, saying,

>◎//: Attention Users: This morning Imagineers installed the marquee for TRON Lightcycle / Run at Magic Kingdom Park, as work continues ahead of the attraction opening on April 4. We can’t wait for you to enter the Grid!

There are still a few unknowns about TRON: Lightcycle/Run, specifically if there will be any previews for D23 Members, Disney Vacation Club Members, or Disney World Annual Passholders.

This roller coaster is supposed to be one of the fastest-if not THE fastest–roller coasters in all of the Disney Theme Parks around the world, suggesting top speeds of over 60 miles per hour. Only time will tell if this promise will come true.

Walt Disney World Resort describes TRON: Lightcycle/Run, in part, as the following:

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.

Scheduled to open April 4, 2023, TRON Lightcycle / Run will be one of the fastest coasters at any Disney theme park in the world.
