Preview Dates Confirmed Ahead of TRON Lightcycle / Run’s Official Opening

The Walt Disney World Resort is currently preparing to open its next thrill ride with TRON Lightcycle / Run coming to Tomorrowland in the Magic Kingdom this spring.

The attraction, which originally debuted in Shanghai Disneyland when this Disney Park opened in 2016, will allow Guests to “Enter the Grid,” and board the attraction for an immersive experience inspired by the classic film. With Imagineers putting the finishing touches on the ride, Disney has confirmed when previews will take place for select Guests to experience TRON Lightcycle / Run ahead of its opening date.

TRON Lightcycle / Run is set to be one of the fastest rides at Walt Disney World. It will also be the first to implement locker requirements, with Guests having to store bags and personal items in lockers before boarding the ride (while storing smaller items like cell phones and wallets in a designated compartment on the ride vehicle.)

Disney’s official description of TRON  Lightcycle / Run reads:

Lean forward into the ultimate race of survival! Leave the real world behind and join Team Blue in an epic quest across the Grid—the dark, computerized world with no horizons from TRON. Here, there’s no limit to the excitement.

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.
