Food additives researcher Clark Griswold, wanting to spend more time with wife Eldn as well as children Rusty and Audrey, decides to lead the family on a cross-country expedition from the suburbs of Chicago to the wonderful "Walley World" — billed as "America's Favorite Family Fun Park" — in Los Angeles. Although Ellen wants to fly, he insists on driving, so he can bond with his family. While meticulously planning his trip via computer, he is harassed by Rusty guiding an on-screen Pac Man to eat the dotted route – until Audrey counterattacks with a ship from Asteroids. The Griswolds' vacation goes awry before it starts.
