Disney World Announces Early Ride Preview Dates for Tron Lightcycle Run.
Hold onto your Lightcycles! folks, because Disney World has just announced the dates for their early ride previews for the highly-anticipated Tron Lightcycle/Run ride! That’s right, before the general public gets to experience the epic race of survival across the Grid, Cast Members and Annual Passholders will get to be the first to climb aboard and take off on this high-speed adventure.
According to The Street, starting on January 30th, Cast Members can begin registering to ride Tron. The preview days are between February 6th and March 3rd. And the best part? They can bring up to three friends or family members along for the ride. But the excitement doesn’t stop there, because after Cast Members finish their early runs, it’s expected that Annual Passholders will get their chance to preview Tron in March before the official opening on April 4th.
For those who may not be familiar, Tron Lightcycle/Run is based on the 1982 film “Tron” starring Jeff Bridges. The movie was groundbreaking for its time. The film was the first production to mix live action with computer-generated visuals and backlit animation. The ride promises to be just as thrilling as the movie. Disney World’s website describes it as “one of the fastest coasters at any Disney theme park in the world.”
But before all guests can experience the thrill of racing against the Grid’s most menacing Programs and attempting to cross through 8 Energy Gates, Cast Members and Annual Passholders will have the first chance to secure their team’s victory and survive to race another day. So if you’re a Cast Member or Annual Passholder, be sure to mark your calendars and register for your early ride preview before it’s too late!
