Fun Activities at CARS 3: Road to the Races Tour #Cars3

This month the CARS 3: Road to the Races nationwide tour made a pit stop at Atlas Park in Queens. Of course we had to be there to enjoy all the fun the tour came with. And get our photo with Lightning McQueen! KaChow!

Once we arrived at the tour, the first thing we did was meet the Disney•Pixar’s “CARS 3” life-size, character look-alikes.

We met five-time Piston-Cup champion Lightning McQueen, tech-savvy Cruz Ramirez and the sleek next-gen racer Jackson Storm. While my son clearly has his favorite, I confess we both were also excited to see and learn a bit about the new CARS 3 characters.

After meeting the celebrity CARS 3 crew, it was time to enjoy the other fun activities happening in tour.

We stopped by the Crest® and Oral-B booth for a family photo and to spin the wheel and win a prize. Yay a CARS 3 toothbrush.

At the Coppertone booth my son learn how the pit crew do tire-changes. He used a real tool to change and replace a "car" tire. He was so proud.

Our last booth stop was at the Mattel booth where my son got to race cars and check out the latest CARS 3 toys and play sets.

We ended the tour by seeing a sneak peek of CARS 3 in the Cinetransformer Mobile Movie Theater. It was a real truck made into a movie theater! That it self was impressive. Then add in that we saw an exclusive clip from the movie and woah!

Blindsided by a new generation of blazing-fast racers, the legendary Lightning McQueen (voice of Owen Wilson) is suddenly pushed out of the sport he loves.

To get back in the game, he will need the help of an eager young race technician, Cruz Ramirez (voice of Cristela Alonzo), with her own plan to win, plus inspiration from the late Fabulous Hudson Hornet and a few unexpected turns. Proving that #95 isn’t through yet will test the heart of a champion on Piston Cup Racing’s biggest stage!

Directed by Brian Fee (storyboard artist “Cars,” “Cars 2“), produced by Kevin Reher (“A Bug’s Life,” “La Luna” short) and co-produced by Andrea Warren (“LAVA” short).

“Cars 3” cruises into theaters on June 16, 2017.
