Oh, please. Oh, please. Oh, please.
You know how sometimes you read things and the dreams just follow? Well, the dreams preceded this rumor, making the possibilities all the more enticing. Both Disneyland and Disney World are potentially looking into bringing one of the most well-reviewed and popular rides from Shanghai’s Disneyland over to the states: TRON Lightcycle Power Run!
Opening last summer the attraction is one for thrill seekers and fans of the Tron movies. The roller coaster puts riders on their own Lightcycles, taking through the Grid at almost 60 mph. For those wondering, it’s the fastest of any Disney roller coaster to date!
Here’s the rumor from WDWNT:
Walt Disney World is planning to build the attraction in Tomorrowland ahead of October 1st, 2021, the start of the 50th anniversary celebration for the entire resort. This would ensure major new additions in each of the four parks leading up to what should be a milestone event lasting 18-24 months. The enhancement at Epcot should begin by that time, and Star Wars land, Toy Story Land, and Pandora: The World of AVATAR will all be open and operating, leaving Magic Kingdom needing something big and new. Currently, the attraction would sit on the site of the Tomorrowland Speedway, but the former Galaxy Palace Theater space (now cast member parking) is a possibility.
Tomorrowland is already the most popular destination for most older kids, but add this in there and without a doubt every pre-teen at Disney will be flocking to the area of the kingdom. And all the adults, too.
Would you ride the TRON Lightcycle?
