TRON Lightcycle Power Run is a semi-enclosed launched steel roller coaster attraction at Shanghai Disneyland. Based on the Tron: Legacy series, the attraction takes guests on a ride through The Grid on their own Light Cycles.[2] The coaster's track takes riders inside and outside the attraction's building, reaching speeds of over 60 miles per hour (97 km/h)—the fastest for any Disney roller coaster.[3][4] The ride debuted along with the rest of the park on June 16, 2016.

Design

The attraction is located inside, underneath a color-shifting canopy[5] in Tomorrowland.

The attraction's motorbike-styled vehicles were created by Walt Disney Imagineering as a method of specializing individual rider experience. The ride was then given a Tron-theme because the ride vehicles resembled the lightcycles featured in Tron: Legacy.[3][6] When aboard the ride vehicle, riders lean forward and grip a set of handlebars. A pad situated behind the seat secures the rider in place.[7]

Summary

Riding atop individual, two-wheeled Light Cycles, guests will be launched across a canopied section of track – the Upload Conduit – before diving high-speed into a mysterious game world of lights, projection and sound effects. Guests waiting to board will have fun imagining the Grid as they listen to the evocative soundtrack and watch the Light Cycle trains twist and turn all around them, all under a color-shifting canopy.

Even at a distance, guests will marvel at the massive, undulating canopy. Covered in a translucent material, it reveals the pulsing glow of Light Cycle trains as they zip through the attraction. The entire canopy is edged in a dramatic, blue-green ribbon that changes color as it rolls across, over and around the Tron Plaza, like the tail of a dragon.
