First Look concept art for Cars Route 66 Road Tour ahead of ‘2020’ opening

Brand new concept art for Cars Route 66 Road Trip has been revealed as the attraction suffers a minor delay to its opening.

With news coming that the resort plans to reopen its gates from 15th July work will soon return to the former Studio Tram Tour attraction, aiming for a new and more vague opening of “later this year.”

and vehicles, bringing guests along a Route 66 road trip to discover natural wonders such as the
world’s biggest lugnut and active water springs. Guests will even encounter favorite Characters
