Default Video of Tron Coaster Progress

This is the one I'm excited about! Much more than SWGE. I could skip the Star Wars dining and shopping "attractions" for awhile but not this.

I'm kind of excited for this one. I worry if I can ride it, but if it is like the other incarnation of it, I should be fine. Been enjoying watching it go up the last few trips!

I take it for granted like most other people, but rides like this are truly an astounding feat of engineering. I look forward to experiencing it!

Yes, this is way more interesting than SW:GE to me. I am planning a trip for 2021, so I hope itís ready!

Thanks for posting!

Given that the ride position is similar to FoP, this is going to a be a really unique experience and I'm looking forward to it. It should be very smooth, I believe.

Am I understanding the track right? It looks like you get to a peak and it ends, so do you then finish the course backwards (like Everest when it encounter the broken track) or is there some sort of turn mechanism? Given that you're on a cycle, it doesn't seem like you should be going backwards.

I'm also disappointed that the building is tucked so far back behind the raceway and Space Mountain. It will be architecturally beautiful and should be a showpiece. But you can only put it where you have the land to put it!

This ride is also something that will NEED to be experienced at night for full effect, I would imagine! We can not wait...my 5 year old has been talking about it since he saw the videos on Youtube from the existing one in Shanghai.
