By now, many Disney fans may feel as if they’ll never see the opening of Magic Kingdom’s new ride, TRON Lightcycle Run. Once the attraction opens in Spring 2023, it will have taken five years to build. That’s longer than it took construction workers to build Magic Kingdom by a few years!

TRON Lightcycle Run involves seating that has Guests leaning forward and holding onto handlebars as if riding a motorcycle. However, this ride vehicle may not fit or be comfortable for all body types. Luckily, at least one coaster train will include traditional lap bar seating.
