Taken today. It appears most work is focused on the tunnel for the train at the moment which is promising….
I think TRON pivots to 2023.What are the chances Disney reopens the trains in 2022 and makes a big ballyhoo about them returning as part of the 50th, basically selling them as an almost-new attraction, as a way to partially cover pushing Tron to 2023?
Too be fair, they at least acknowledged it’s existence at Destination D23. So at least they are still aware of it. Such a shame it probably won’t open for another year or year and a half.Why should he? It's just some nondescript coaster somewhere, that maybe is from some sci-fi/fantasy movie.*
*It worked for Iger...
There is a common misconception of how lightning rods work. They do not avoid lightning striking where it wants to. Most people die when they are struck by secondary strikes. Lightning Rods are geared more towards protecting infastructure from power surges and fires, not preventing lightning death.Um... doesn't the metal frame of the canopy serve as a big lightning rod over the outdoor portion of the track?
Surrounded by, but not covered. I'm no engineer, but it seems to me all that metal over the outdoor tracks would count as "cover."Someone my brother knew died at its HS Football field when the child was going back out to get his equipment after some practice drills. That lightning killed him and he was surrounded by taller metal structures, the stadium, the lights and more. He was struck and killed by a bolt.

When does that start? October 2023? Or all of 2023? But isn't the 50th still going in 2023? How many times can I say 2023?
Opening Tron in the spring would be a horrible move. They don’t need the bump in attendance or PR for a new ride then. You will still have the 50th anniversary hype going, along with the natural bump in attendance for spring break. Couple that with an increase in travel post the flu/Covid winter numbers and you will be set for Q1 2022. The summer then brings Guardians opening so you don’t want to compete with that event/attendance bump. Best guess you hold tron until the later half of the 50th anniversary period to hold attendance figures. Depending on the state of design, you also likely try to link the closing of splash mountain for re-skinning to the tron opening to soften the blow of one of your premier rides being down.They could open Tron this spring if they wanted to, and they should.
They just said 18 months for the 50th, but the end date was kind of open ended. 18 months from October would end on March 2023. So April 1st 2023 is the earliest they could transition from 50th to 100 year stuff.When does that start? October 2023? Or all of 2023? But isn't the 50th still going in 2023? How many times can I say 2023?
