TRON Roller Coaster may be built in USA someday, not just China

on Thursday, January, 07, 2016 4:20 PM


Today I discovered that the TRON Roller Coaster was originally planned to be built at one of Disney’s theme parks in the United States, first. Obviously, plans changed. But, apparently, the door is still open for one to be built in the USA.

Find out more details, and concept art of the proposed early coaster design for the USA, in my article. The USA design is different than what we’re seeing for the Disneyland Shanghai China coaster.

Here’s one of the concept art images from the article.

Even if I would never be able to Visit/ride it (Living too far away), i would love to See it open. Another sign, that Tron is Not dead!

Good find!  I think they should do that, and then simply expand upon it to run across the nation, so you can go from East coast to West coast in a highspeed Tron Light Runner or Light Car.  Who needs railroads and cars, when you'd have a -inspired mode of transport?

Ooh, hopefully enclosed, with the proper lighting... *sigh*  If only we could've repurposed Disaster Transport before Cedar Point tore it down; that would've worked perfectly.

What do you want? I'm busy.


Program, please!


Chaos.... good news.

They need to build this! And also keep End of Line Bar and Flynn's Arcade as a permanent thing!

Same here. I would be thrilled if they decided to go ahead and build a Tron ride here.  I also live too far away, but maybe one day I'll be lucky and me and my friends will find ourselves in disneyland/world and see an awesome End of Line bar!

I'm cold and calculating. Don't press my buttons.

Yeah they need to build the ride, End of Line bar, and Flynn's arcade again, like they did at Electronica. I loved Electronica! It was radical man!

Thanks to TransAm_Paul on and UnitedTronArmy on Twitter, I’ve been made aware of a rumor that a TRON roller coaster may indeed be built in Disney World Florida, replacing the Body Wars ride in the closed down Wonders of Life Pavilion, at EPCOT’s Future World. It will apparently be a Light Cycle ride, very similar to the one recently opened in Shanghai Disneyland.

http://tronfaq.blogspot.com/2016/01/tron-roller-coaster-was-originally.html

This confirms info in the article I wrote (mentioned in an earlier post in this topic, to which I've added an update about this news, at the bottom of the article), where I discovered a document from Walt Disney’s Imagineering team, that showed a TRON roller coaster was originally meant to debut in Florida, first. It was also going to be different from the coaster at Shanghai Disneyland, using Light Runners instead of Light Cycles. But, plans obviously changed, and China got the TRON coaster first.

If you want to find out more details about what the US roller coaster was originally going to look like (again, not the same as the one in China), and how the Imagineering document showed that Florida was actually the first pick for the location of the roller coaster, check out my article linked above.

I was just at the Disney World resort last week and there are plenty of places in Epcot where this could go. The park desperately needs more attractions, too.

I think they need to put a Tron ride in the Los Angeles Disneyland also. I just want to ride this ride so bad!

Hey everyone, long time no see. I actually have heard of a rumor pertaining to this.

According to some people who claim to have connections with inside sources (and have apparently been accurate with some reports in the past), the plans to build a Guardians of the Galaxy-themed rollercoaster in Epcot's Universe of Energy building have been scrapped. Apparently the project went way over-budget. Supposedly there are a lot of ideas in circulation right now, but the one with the most traction is to build a Tron ride of some kind in that building. It was not specified if it would be a copy of the Shanghai coaster or not. Apparently the plans are to have Universe of Energy's replacement up and running in time for the resort's 50th anniversary.

There were some reports earlier this year from people who said that operators in the Universe of Energy attraction claimed that they had been informed by management that the ride would be shutting down at the end of this year.

Ahhh....it would be nice to have a job working on something like that if one actually had the expertise. The one in China looked like so much fun. I can remember wwwaaayyy back in 1982 when my family went on vacation to the Sunshine State of California and Tron was just debuting on the big screen. I went on a ride that had the light cycles projected on the walls which was really neat. Space Mountain was incredibly cool as well. I came home wishing I could make stuff like that but I never excelled in school enough to be able to design such awesome things. If they built a Tron coaster, I wonder if they would do that in Disneyland or Disneyworld. How cool it would be to work on something like that. Viva Disney!
