TRON Lightcycle Run
Spoiler alert! I will attempt to describe what happens inside the show building on this page!
While some indoor coasters take place in total darkness, other enclosed coasters, like the nearby Rock 'N' Roller Coaster, have minimal effects and lighting. The two TRON coasters buck this trend and have a huge amount of special effects inside their show buildings! Scattered throughout the building are many objects that trains pass by or even pass through. With a variety of shapes and sizes, some of the objects have mirrored surfaces, some are translucent, and most have eerie light blue lights that give many of these obstacles a futuristic glow. Massive screens placed along the track project images of other Lightcycles that are racing the coaster's trains. The screens also show explosions as the simulated cycles meet their doom. The coaster's trains also have on-board audio that plays music and sound effects during the ride. And if that wasn't enough, the trains have a complex lighting system that changes the intensity and color of the trains' lights as they pass through the ride.
