    Exclamation Magic Kingdom Updates Tron Coaster Progress & Announces 2 Related Ride Closures

    The Magic Kingdom has announced an update for the apparently yet-to-be-named 'Tron coaster-style attraction':

    First, the Walt Disney World Railroad will temporarily take up residence at the Main Street Station starting in December 2018, pausing its grand-circle tours of Magic Kingdom Park. During this time, guests will be able to get an up-close look at the railroad and take advantage of one-of-a-kind photo opportunities.

    The Tomorrowland Speedway will close for a portion of 2019, as the attraction’s track is adjusted. It will reopen as the same attraction our guests know and love in the summer of 2019.

    Magic Kingdom’s Tron attraction, which is set to debut in time for Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary in 2021, is based on TRON Lightcycle Power Run at Shanghai Disneyland. This coaster-style attraction allows riders to board a train of two-wheeled Lightcycles for a thrilling race through the digital frontier. TRON Lightcycle Power Run debuted on Shanghai Disneyland’s opening day and quickly became the highest-rated attraction at the park.

    This makes me sad. I know many will miss the railroad, and I wish they would update the speedway, since it will be down anyways.

    TRICIA JONES: I heard that you were going to propose to Brandi Svenning at some theme park. When are men going to learn that women want ROMANCE, not Mr. Toad's Wild Ride...

    BRODIE: Hey, now, be fair. EVERYONE wants Mr. Toad's Wild Ride.

    I liked Tron as a kid, I remember the game was pretty fun, but is there something I'm missing ..... is there a new movie I missed ??? hahaha .... I am not kidding ..... I missed it didn't I ??? I like the art and the idea of a coaster type Tron ride thing ..... hopefully it's as good or better than Slinky Dog .... also, I agree the Speedway needs a face lift !!!
