Disney fans lost it Saturday when Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Bob Chapek announced that the “TRON” ride in Shanghai Disneyland is going to come to Disney World.
The nearly 7,000-person crowd at the Parks and Resorts presentation at D23 Expo erupted in an enormous amount of applause and cheers at the announcement, and it’s not difficult to see why if you’re familiar with the attraction.
The TRON Lightcycle Power Run is an indoor and outdoor coaster ride that places guests on their own “Tron” light cycles and is supposed to make attendees feel like they’re traveling through the popular movie’s virtual reality grid. The seats look similar to sitting on a motorcycle.
The ride is reported to be the fastest Disney coaster, reaching up to about 60 mph.
The ride opened in Shanghai in June 2016 and fans have posted plenty of videos of their experiences on the coaster to YouTube. This point-of-view video alone has over seven million views.
