Lone Star Exotic Rentals's motor heads fulfill driving fantasies by arranging adrenaline-pumping cruises, drawing from a fleet of exotic automobiles that includes makes and models from Lamborghini, Mustang, and Ferrari. Individuals can rent roadsters for up to 24 hours at a stretch, allowing drivers ample time to shout curse words at slow-moving armadillos. Lone Star also offers one-hour excursions, allowing drivers to clutch the steering wheel and downshift through a 15-mile stretch of scenic blacktop.
Ecopocalypse hauls visitors into a future, post-apocalyptic Austin, where human society has crumbled and survivors teeter on the edge of madness as they fight for any remaining water, food, and retired beanie babies. The 15,000-square-foot attraction weaves down allies, through buildings, and underground, sending visitors scrambling around a labyrinth of missing people and through the aisles of an abandoned supermarket. But unlike traditional haunted houses that are filled with zombies and pushy car salesmen, here, the monsters are the hopeless human masses. As they move through scene upon scene of dystopian chaos, visitors may be moved to question their own ability to survive such devastation. Luckily, there's no shortage of delicious sustenance outside the haunt, and guests will find all sorts of treats to calm their nerves—including a full bar and a brightly lit patio—right next door at the event's Foodtopia oasis.
Stretching across more than 6 miles, Lady Bird Lake's tranquil waters reflect the Austin skyline, the cliffs at Red Bud Isle, and the Congress Avenue Bridge, home to the largest urban bat population in the world. Throughout the year, Rowing Dock’s instructors take visitors into this manmade lake and teach them to paddle in kayaks or row within stand-up paddleboards. For customers who feel comfortable with their paddling prowess, the staffers rent everything from one-, two- and three-person kayaks, paddleboats and paddleboards, and canoes. As these human-powered vessels float across the lake, passengers can view the area's many native birds or canoodle with their oars at sunset.
Texas is known for many things, and Texas Winos wants to make sure that wine and beer are two of them. To bolster their mission, the libation-loving staff of the business whisks visitors away on tours of area breweries and vineyards. Beer tours travel around the Central Texas area visiting local breweries and sampling their wares. During vineyard tours, guests sample an array of varietals while learning about the winemaking process from vintners. But it's not all drinking and learning. Many tours have themes, including Mardi Gras, Roaring '20s, and Superheroes and Villains, in which customers are encouraged to don apropos ensembles and pretend they can see through wine.
