Part Disney ride, part auto show, and part drive-in theater. This nine-scene theatrical extravaganza ushers its audience from scene to scene while immersed amongst 40 vintage and unique cars, 17 actors perform amidst 160 wheels, 320 cylinders, thousands of horsepower, amid 70,000 square feet to tell an intimate tale that revolutionizes transportation which could save our planet.
Set in 2022 at the outset of the AV transportation revolution, Gabby, a technonerd teen Dreamer, loses her Over The Road truck driving father and avenges his demise. With ICE, Amazon, Google, and Karl in pursuit, Gabby tests whether lives can be saved by precise technology or human intervention or both.
