Superior Rents' owners, Dan and Steve Wohnoutka, trace the genesis of their business back to their own childhoods spent on a modestly equipped farm. With an appreciation for how proper tools and equipment can make projects run smoother, they decided to stock three locations with plumbing, construction, and lawn-care equipment for homeowners and contractors to rent on an hourly, daily, or weekly basis. Their online catalog hosts a roster of rental equipment, from power drills for household projects to forklifts for hanging Do Not Disturb signs on asteroids. Customers can arrange for equipment to be delivered to their work site or drop by one of three locations—including a newly opened site in Springfield—to pick up gear.

I'm a first-timer. How do you get me ready for the experience?
There is a four hour ground school training session followed by the solo jump on the same day. The training is a mix of in classroom power point and hands on learning. In the training, we explain everything the jumpers need to know in order to do a solo skydive. For the hands on learning, we have a training harness for jumpers to practice on. We basically go through the whole skydive on the ground before the actual jump.
What?s your favorite part of your job?
There is the excitement and thrill of skydiving. It's also a very interesting group of friends.
Apart from your business's main attraction, do you offer any "hidden" services or activities that visitors are always delighted to learn about?
There is a restaurant on premise open on Saturdays. First time jumpers and others observers that come out to watch always enjoy watching our regular jumpers float down. It's very pretty to see canopies in the air floating to the ground.

As they await their treatments, which could include a cucumber facial or sparkly makeup application, partygoers partake in crafts, making bracelets or frilly tutus.
House-made dough rises every day in the Parmesan's Pizzeria kitchen, where chefs toss it into pizza crust or bake it into the restaurant's signature cheesy breadsticks. Creative toppings crown these specialty pies, such as spaghetti and meatballs, spinach-and-artichoke dip, chicken cordon bleu, and the Padre pizza, whose five meats and extra cheese arrive baked within a World's Best Dad trophy. Calzones and sub sandwiches round out the hearty bill of fare, which patrons can have delivered at home, pick up themselves, or munch in a dining room equipped with a large-screen television.
