That's the Tron Lightcycle Coaster there, showing an outside track segment along with the indoor "dark ride" part of the thrill ride. Stefan also has posted photos of the new Pirates ride and covered coaster cars for the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, and he shows the progress on the Enchanted Storybook Castle and Toy Story Hotel. You can see the complete line-up of attractions expected for the new park on our Shanghai Disneyland page. The park is expected to open by the end of 2015.
Also on the Asian theme parks beat, Low Hao Jie has posted some photos of the new attraction under construction at Universal Studios Singapore. The new ride is going in between the Shrek-themed Far, Far Away and the Jurassic Park-themed Lost World. Universal is installing coaster track that looks very much like the track from a Vekoma Suspended Family Coaster, according to the report. Vekoma was the provider for the park's now-shuttered Battlestar Galactica dueling coasters.
