Disneyland Tron Ride (Video)
So earlier this week cast members were able to attend the soft opening of a brand new ride opening at Shanghai Disneyland. The awesome new ride is based off of the movie Tron: Legacy and gives riders the experience of riding an actual lightcycle. The ride is titled Tron Lightcycle Power Run and it is one of the most unique ride’s I’ve ever scene. Ever since I was a kid and my Dad showed me the first Tron movie I fell in love with the lightcycles and always dreamed of riding one.
This ride is featured in the Tomorrowland portion of Shanghai Disneyland and opens to the public June 16 of this year. The ride its self looks sleek and futuristic. It definitely has the look and feel of the Tron universe right down to the signature blue lighting. Riders sit on their own individual lightcycle and go through the track side by side to one other person. The ride looks fast and fun taking park goers through the darkness and even outside.
I totally wish they would make a ride like this for the Disney theme parks here in the states. I know that they are adding Star Wars land but it would be awesome to see Tomorrowland updated with this Tron lightcycle ride and possibly a few other new rides. For those of you that will probably never make it out to Shanghai China (like myself) a very considerate person posted a full length video of the actual ride from his point of view. I’m sure this video does little justice to what it’s like to actually be on the ride but it’s the best we got for now.
So check out the video below of Tron Lightcycle Power Run and let me know what you think Nerd Nation. Does this ride look exciting to you and would you like to see this or something like it come to the other Disney theme parks around the world?
