Before we head into the weekend, we wanted to stop by and check on the progress over at the TRON Lightcycle Run construction site in Magic Kingdom. As you might remember, we gave you a first look at the canopy installation when the first piece went in earlier this week. Since then, crews have been busy constructing scaffolding to support the canopy, pieces of the canopy, and installing support structures to hold the canopy in place.
When the canopy is complete, it will come alive at night, providing a kinetic energy at the far end of Tomorrowland. Here’s a look at the installed canopy over at Shanghai Disneyland.
Now, let’s take a look at the construction site at Magic Kingdom. On the left side of the wide-angle image below, you can see workers piecing together a part of the white canopy structure. On the right side of the image is the outdoor loop-after-launch section of roller coaster track. This will all be covered by canopy once construction is completed.
Over at the roller coaster track, we can see more canopy structure has been installed, seen below in white. Also seen in the following photos is the support scaffolding in brown that will eventually be removed.
Taking a few steps back, here’s a look at the installed piece of canopy support as seen from the overflow Barnstormer queue in Storybook Circus.
Finally, an angle that we don’t take many photos from because there isn’t much to see yet, but here’s a look from Space Mountain. As you can see, the PeopleMover track hides much of the current work, but will not serve as a blockade to the final product which should very much compete with Space Mountain to dominate the Tomorrowland skyline.
