Do you recall when the Road To The Races tour was racing across the U.S. in anticipation of Cars 3 hitting theaters? This was a unique opportunity for fans to connect with life-sized versions of Lightning McQueen, Cruz Ramirez, and Jackson Storm as well as engage in other fun games and receive some promotional items for attending.
Well, Pixar is taking another tour — this time mirroring the RV road trip that Bonnie and her family go on that kicks off a series of events in Toy Story 4. Coming to twenty cities throughout the U.S., a fully-wrapped RV-themed after Toy Story 4 will offer great photo opportunities, prizes, carnival games, and lots of family-friendly fun (for free).
Two film ambassadors will be on hand to share details about fan-favorite characters—Woody, Buzz, Bo Peep—as well as new characters coming to the big screen—Forky, Bunny, Ducky, and Duke Caboom, among others.
Watch this quick commercial for the RV’s sponsor, Go RVing and then check and see if the Toy Story 4 RV will be stopping at a city near you (please double-check with your local area in case of any last-minute location changes).
