Shanghai Disneyland doesn’t officially open until June 16, but you can still see what it’s like to hop on its new Tron Lightcycle ride and see if it’s worth the wait.
The Inside the Magic blog posted a video Sunday from the point of view of someone riding the Tron Lightcycle Power Run roller coaster ride, which opened to select guests and cast members to work out the bugs early, Inside the Magic reported.
The lightcycles look just like the ones featured in “Tron: Legacy,” with bright blue neon lights on the bike and around the perimeter of the ride itself. The ride starts off in the dark with only the ride’s blue hue illuminating the room.

The futuristic design of the Disneyland attraction makes it feel like riders are trapped inside the “Tron” film as they speed through a neon-lit tunnel.
“Traverse Tron’s electrifying multi-sensory environment as you speed, dip and dive through digitized darkness on one of the fastest indoor roller coasters in Disney theme park history,” the Shanghai Disneyland website says.
The video shows that half of the ride takes passengers outside the building on the twisting roller coaster track, but then they return inside with music from the “Tron: Legacy” movie soundtrack welcoming them back from their adventure.
