Before guests could "enter TRON City," a pre-show called a Power Surge was performed set on a stage just outside the entrance to ElecTRONica (or "The Portal," as Eckert invariably called it).

The show started off by introducing the events of the original TRON film, via scenes played on a screen above the stage. After a brief introduction, the introduction to Journey's "[[Separate Ways]]" began as dancers dressed in 80's attire cavort before an Arcade mockup. Following this, "[[TRON:_Legacy_(soundtrack)|The Game Has Changed]]" briefly played, introducing the "Grid" section of the pre-show, where dancers dressed as programs performed a much more gladitorial dance with clashing discs and martial arts moves.

But even these fearless gladiators, the voiceover would then explain, needed a place to reenergize themselves, along with "someone to guide them, to lead them, to rock their world like it's never been rocked before." Accompanied by two [[Sirens]], Eckert would enter on cue, waxing eloquent about "the wonders of Tron City" and the fun that awaited the audience beyond the Portal, while leading the programs through one of three dance routines, each performed to a different [[Daft Punk]] song.

During afternoon pre-shows, Eckert and his programs -- combatants, Sirens, and Servers -- would teach the audience a dance set to Daft Punk's "Around the World," and invite them to return later when "the sun goes down and the Grid lights up." The evening pre-shows would end right before ElecTRONica was due to open for the evening, and Eckert would lead the audience in a ten-second countdown and then announce that the Portal was open and everyone could "enter the Grid."

===End of Line Club===
Based on the night club located inside the Grid during ''Tron: Legacy'', the End of Line Club served glowing alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. Among the alocholic options were Glowjito mojitos and blinking Digitini martinis. Non-alcoholic choices included Coke Zero and Laser Light Lemonade. A nearby food truck offered nachos and chocolate cake.

In this replica of the arcade seen in the ''Tron'' films, guests played vintage 1980s video games such as[[Tron (arcade game)| Tron]], ''[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battlezone_(1980_video_game) Battlezone]'', ''[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Centipede_(video_game) Centipede]'', ''[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donkey_Kong_(video_game) Donkey Kong]'', ''[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pac-Man Pac-Man]'', ''[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pole_Position_(video_game) Pole Position]'', ''[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Baron_(video_game) Red Baron]'', and ''[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zaxxon Zaxxon]'', a game that had previously existed in the original ''Tron'' film. All games required a token, or the equivalent of a quarter, to play. Just outside the arcade, guests could also play ''[[Tron: Evolution|TRON: Evolution]] ''and ''[[TRON: Evolution - Battle Grids|TRON: Evolution-Battle Grids]].''

On the final night of ElecTRONica, Eckert announced that "for our own cyber-survival, the Portal into the Users' world must be closed," but allowed one more song first -- fittingly, a remix of Daft Punk's "One More Time." Afterwards Eckert, shouting to be heard over the crowd's enthusiasm, thanked the Servers, Sirens, and Users, but was interrupted by prompts projected on the wall: "Commence Immediate Deresolution," ">Terminate Program Electronica: >Execute" and ">Are You Sure? >Confirm," followed by an electronic countdown in the voice of the MCP. In the resulting confusion, Eckert and the other programs left the scene, and most of the lights cut off, with the words "END OF LINE," projected in giant letters on the wall, signaling that the Portal had finally closed.
