Disney Pixar CARS: Easy GeoCaching to GeoTrax CARS (Bring Cash) + Aiden Mom’s Setup

Now that these have hit the shelves (thanks Mike E. & Popeye for the Target pics …), it seems many of you missed the original GeoTrax post and recap so here’s your updated checklist. If I wasn’t already collecting Steinway pianos, ICBM missiles and Mattel 1:55 Disney Pixar CARS (now that really fills up a house, let me tell you), I would add this cool line to my collecting list …


Trev will be pretty hard to resist … send us pics of Trev set up the MINI’sΒ  (right & stylization & scale?)

GeoTrax Trev

Start small and go big?

” …Lightning McQueen RC vehicle with an easy-to-use remote control. This RC vehicle also includes forward & reverse feature with fun sound effects and moves twice as fast as regular Geotrax RC vehicles! Lightning McQueen still works within the current Geotrax world so kids can use this vehicle with additional track & play pieces!”

Also available at Amazon.com (click on the name or the photo for a direct link).



But what’s CARS without Radiator Springs tracks and streets, right?

Sheriff’s Lookout Mountain


(Kid not included).


Too funny!

Ramones GeoTrax House of Body Art!


Flo’s V8 Cafe (with Sound Effects!)


And of course, you need tracks to attach these to …

The “elevation” Track Pack with Sally & the Stop Light …


The “ground” Track Pack with Sarge & the Route 66 Sign …






Thanks for “Fiddleheads-Heather” & DLMcQueen, it looks like there are two new “combo sets.”

Mega front

They have bundled 6 sets together as the “Radiator Springs Mega Set.” It looks like it includes the following sets: Flo’s V8 Cafe, Sheriff’s Lookout Mountain, the Sarge & Sally expansion tracks plus the Lightning RC rev thing.

Lightning McQueen’s Close Call

Close call

And a another combo set just out that combines part of the Sheriff Lookout, Trev (though without as many track components) and RC McQueen.

Too nice!

So I guess you can drive from “roads” onto “train tracks?” Is that the right example to teach kids? JUST KIDDING! I want to see the entire setup running with all the CARS and trains – you can … do it!

Aiden’s Mom has delivered one punch that is the knockout punch – good luck topping this … yep, this the Geotrax CARS room – top that … πŸ™‚


I believe she lives with the motto, “Go big or don’t go at all.”


Yep, pretty complete … so, I suppose if anyone needs to be sent to their room, there some other room that’s a lttle less ‘punishing?’Β  πŸ˜†


What’s that long strip of road in the back? GeoTrax also? Not CARS …


I think this is the airport one in the background …


Just remember to hide the humanoids from the set when playing with the CARS setΒ  πŸ™‚

I think Grand Central Station is also in back …


The gauntlet & GeoTrax standard has been set by Aiden’s Mom so good luck to topping this πŸ™‚

    We have the

    Radiator Springs Mega Set from TRU,
    4 track packs (2 Sally, Sarge and a Trev) from Target
    Lightning McQueen RC
    Tow Mater RC
    Doc Hudson RC

    We’re looking for Ramon’s shop, but so far no luck there.

    We also have about $2,000.00 worth of GeoTrax train stuff too, and although we love GeoTrax Trains, the kiddo (and I have to admit me as well) are really into the Disney Cars stuff. His entire room is all Cars – bedspread, sheets, pillow, posters, metal cars, plastic cars, pillows, you name it, plus a few Thomas Trains thrown in there (his room is blue so it kind of all matches).

    Pixar/Disney just released a bunch of new Cars stuff too at Target and Walmart – cars that their eyes move and such. Kind of neat, but man is it expensive buying all this stuff. The sad part is that I’m starting to notice that the quality is going downhill on most of it from previous releases of both GeoTrax and Disney Cars items.

  • Eric says:

    This is probably old news on two fronts here, but whatever…

    1) TRU has a $100 “value” pack that contains about $120 worth of Cars GeoTrax stuff including Flo’s, 5 vehicles (most are push vehicles), and a bunch of other stuff. If you are going off the deep end, maybe you can save $20?

    2) TRU also has a hardback Cars Toons book that has three of the stories in it. Sadly, no Tokyo Mater, but it was an absolute necessity when we went there today. Especially since the wifey said no chance to the GeoTrax stuff. Little does she know that they will actually sell me stuff when she isn’t around… (I was playing nice today as it is the start of the weekend and … well … I like weekends). πŸ˜‰

    If this is old hat, great. If this helps someone out then my job is done!

  • swb says:

    wish they would have made trev a battery train and i wish they sold them without the track because i have soo much extra track its not worth it just to have the different color track.

  • alana says:

    My son, an avid Cars collector, already has a GeoTrax collection. These will be an awesome addition to his collection, and considering his birthday os on Friday, I will be hitting Target today. Thanks for the pics and post!

  • Whoseline says:

    Kid not included? well then whats the point?

  • NicoleH says:

    My son has all the other GeoTrax sets so of course we are gonna get these. I have already bought Flo’s and just showed Grandma the rest at Target. I am gonna save them all and then set them up around the tree for Christmas morning. Always wanted a train to go around the tree-guess Radiator Springs will do!

  • AidensMom624 says:

    To answer questions about pics … the long strip in the back is from The Disney Store – it is “Cars Launcher Track”. It uses those bigger die cast from Disney Store. Not sure how it made it from the basement to the “GeoTrax room” – but it did.

    And yep – the airport, Grand Central Station, the barn with another airplane … GeoTrax room … we literaly have them ALL (since 2006), it’s pretty obnoxious. :o)

    Oh – and a friend of mine just sent Aiden a rather large box of a TON of CARS things, I think they must be a few years old – great condition, but I don’t know what half of them are ! Some are MEGA BLOKS, because we have all the CARS sets, but some, I have no idea – there were no manuals or anything with them. Aiden about pooped his pants when he opened the box last week – seriously, box the size he can fit in – filled with CARS *goods*.

  • babychristianscars says:

    As soon as all of ours arrive I will definitely take photos. I am ordering them all LOL.

  • AidensMom624 says:

    Forgot to add – usually TRU does a “buy 2 get 1 free” of GeoTrax in October (well, they have the past 2 years). Maybe that would be a good time to grab them, but, of course I couldn’t wait THAT long !!! Ugh !!!

  • AidensMom624 says:

    Bought them all … it was about $240 or so, I didn’t really pay attention. Set them up today in our “Geo Trax” room — took down all other Geo Trax trains, stations, bridges, etc …
    Aiden hasn’t left the room much since I showed it to him. He has been carrying around the damn Fisher Price catalog since APRIL with all the McQueen Geo Trax in them (I can’t tell you how many times I have taped pages back together and stapled the entire thing to make it a ‘catalog’ again – I am so glad he allowed me to put it in the recycling bin tonite)!
    So, when I saw them all on the shelf, I just went ahead and got everything :o) He is a happy little 4 year old this evening !

  • Flik'sFriend says:

    I wish I was a kid again!!!!!!! These are so cool!!!!! πŸ˜†

  • I saw some in Nashua NH at Target on Amherst and Sears Essentials also on Amherst.
    They had em.
    Go get em
    and enjoy…since they are too rich for my blood.
    But nice.

  • I just couldn’t resist these when I saw them at Target. I picked up the larger sets except for the Ramone set which wasn’t in stock yet. The individual Cars with the controllers are actually slightly cheaper at TRU so I picked up those there. My favorite set is Trev!

    I was on the fence about getting them though. My son will be 6 years old in November so I was afraid he might be too old for them. I decided to get all sets while they’re in stock and then give him the Trev set to try out soon. If he doesn’t like it then I’ll take the sets back (except for Trev) to the stores. Well…on second thought…I might have to keep them all for myself to play with. They’re just so cute! I wonder if my husband will notice all the Cars GeoTrax set up in our bedroom? πŸ˜‰

  • Dunroamin says:

    my Kmart had most of this stuff…My son outgrew geo-trax…but my daughter likes them now…2 full totes…they are excellent toys and a lot of fun (when the batteries are charged πŸ™‚

  • Jack says:

    Yes Jeff. I am with you run and don’t look back. With all the new haulers, Cars toons, Launchers, pit crews
    and of course the Final lap cars. I’ll pass also. Just like we did with the minis. Ok maybe the Trev. Just so we
    have one and John has always liked train anyway, but I won’t buy anything else in this line. Although if John
    were 2 or 3 not 5 I probably would.

  • jestrjef says:

    Very cool, but WILL NOT stray from METAL MATEL . . . no min’s, no geotraxs . . . MUST CONTINUE TO STAY FOCUSED!!! Blinders on . . . . KEEP WALKING . . . . wait . . . RUN, RUN, RUN . . . . . πŸ™‚

  • collectormom says:

    I saw these in Target the other day too; I bet these are hours of fun once you get them all hooked together. Met are they hours of fun?

    (MET: They look like it … but I’m drawing the line at two rooms of the house for CARS πŸ™‚ Maybe I should buy one of the $100 houses I’ve heard of in the Midwest … maybe we can pool our money and buy some $100 T5 houses all across the country as roving museums πŸ™‚ ).

  • jedijson says:

    Oh, I am SO getting these for Little One! He’s not quite old enough for them, but I don’t care. I have GOT to get them!

  • Edge says:

    We need an ICBM missile Trading Forum. Met, make it so!

    • John in Missouri says:

      Atari’s Missile Command — one of the best arcade games ever!

      • jestrjef says:

        Yep . . . I still have it LIVE and working . . . AWESOME system . . Atari is yes . . .

      • chuki_mama says:

        THIRD!!! My older sister got carpel tunnel from Asteroids!! πŸ˜† She got her score to go reset at least 3-4 times in one game.. πŸ™‚

        • John in Missouri says:

          Different game, but I can beat ANYBODY who challenges me on the Nintendo NES version of Galaga. I wish they would hold a Retro Video Game National Championship, I would win EASILY on Galaga.

          • Jack says:

            In the arcade version of asteroids I scored over 3 million. I palyed for I guess about 3 to 4 hours
            and had over 100 ships left when I decided I had enough. I could have played for as long as I could
            have stayed up. Finally we just turned the game off and let someone else play. As far as home systems
            go Atari was good for the time but if you want to challenge someone, we’ve got to go to Madden Football.
            Then we will see who’s got game. LOL and remember “you gotta watch the snap”. How can it get any better than the 86 Giants Vs. The 84 49ers in the snow. My friends and I spent alot hours on that. Link and
            Zelda for Sega were pretty good too. So anyone else have some favorite video game comments. I would love to hear them.

            (MET: Centipede on the iPhone is great – Galaga – me’h).

          • PirateDad says:

            I LOVED Galaga..I can here the sound effects tight now when your ship got captured….diddledooddidddlleedoooo

  • I saw these yesterday too. Man, I really need to get Fisher-Price licensing…

    Wait, aren’t they owned by Mattel and based right here in NY??

    (MET: Yes, I think they have their own sales team though …).

  • MiaSenorita says:

    We bought Trev today – if I had the money I would MOST DEFINITELY buy everything they had! They only had one of each thing there, and no Ramones, or Sheriff’s mountain either πŸ™ I would really like Sheriff’s mountain.

    Trev pulled me into minis.. and now here he goes again pulling me into GeoTrax Cars!!! All from his 8 second run in the movie… LOL

    Each RC car is $25…. Then the bigger sets I think are probably $30-$35.. we didn’t have those and I don’t remember the price on Flo – probably $35.

    Each track pack costs $20… so total that would be:

    Track pack – 3x$20
    RC Trains – 3x$25
    Add ons – guessing – $30, $35, $35

    Total = $235… yikes! Thank goodness we don’t have sales tax here in Montana or that might tack on an extra $14.. Cute, but I will have to pace our family on this set.

    • Uncle Skip says:

      At least Trev had more screen time than some of the Cars out there… and he had a bit of action!!!

      Halloween Hank, Dustin Mellows, Milton… even some racers only had blink and yo miss them appearances!!

      Gotta go looking for these now… geotrax is a HUGE hit in my house!

  • John in Missouri says:

    LOVE these things!

  • BMW says:

    These look like great fun!

    • BMW says:

      So how’s your vintage ICBM Missle collection? πŸ™‚
      It would be so neat if they sold the accessories, separately, the signs, especially the big one that Sheriff hides behind.
