We know the local history, geography, trails, roads, [and] bike routes in the area and can personalize our customers' experience. Additionally, we are experienced in teaching our customers how to safely operate the Segway Personal Transporter.
Apart from your business's main attraction, do you offer any "hidden" services or activities that visitors are always delighted to learn about?

The staff of skilled technicians at Mueller's Auto Inc., an ASE-certified facility, helps to ensure engines stay healthy by serving them refreshing drafts of Valvoline 10W-30 motor oil. During the 30-minute service, mechanics lead used oil out of the car and load in the clean lubricant quart by quart. The technicians then embark on a multipoint tour of the vehicle, checking critical parts such as tires, brakes, and lights to award the vehicle a clean bill of health before sending it off to flutter its wipers at ice-cream trucks.
Denver Lincoln Limousine ferries Denver metro-area residents across town in a fleet of gleaming vehicles driven by fully licensed and insured drivers. Whether traveling to the airport, celebrating a bachelor party, or simply showing up to a job interview in style, customers are infused with confidence once ensconced in the luxurious leather seats of their Lincoln L-Series Town Cars, limousines, vans, SUVs, or American-flag-decaled Shelby Mustang.
The most difficult thing about the supercar driving experiences at Oxotic might be the first thing drivers do: actually choosing a ride. he company keeps its fleet of uber rare $300,000 supercars. Once drivers make their selection, though, it's a straight shot to the open road. Each experience begins with a brief orientation, during which instructors explain how every doodad in the car works so drivers don't hit the wrong button and accidentally shoot silly string from the exhaust pipe. The driving experiences themselves range from five to 100 miles in length, and souvenirs–such as high-def video recordings of rides–keep adrenalin rushes going long after the pistons stop pumping.
It's a charity race with a back story like none other: bloodthirsty demons have been working in your community's offices, living in its homes, attending its schools. And now they're on the hunt and people are running for their lives. Citizens might be booking it across a field, seemingly far from the chaos, when shapes emerge on the horizon dressed head-to-toe in vampires' telltale black clothes. If you're a citizen, be prepared to run. If you're a vampire—lock in your target.
That's just part of what you might experience on the Vampire 5K, a twilight fun run where participants can register as "citizens" or "vampires" and take off from two separate starting lines. Both camps eventually converge in a chase that finds vamps trying to convert their mortal counterparts to the dark side. Citizens, dressed in white, sport two garlic flags; if the flags are taken before runners cross their finish line, they switch to a black tee and chase citizens. After the race, a moonlit party finds both camps sipping bloody marys during a dance party and award presentation. The race benefits the Mission to Hear Foundation, which provides hearing aids to underprivileged children, adults, and whatever they're calling the age group that comes in between these days.
Inspired by The Amazing Race, CityScape Adventures—held across the United States—entangle race participants in webs of 12 puzzles and challenges in citywide races to the finish line. Participants compete in teams of two, using their wits, teamwork, and underground network of mutant-turtle spies to complete the tasks given at the start of the race. The 12 challenges take the form of puzzles, riddles, and clues that guide treasure hunters to a specific location within the city, where each team must complete a special task using only their cleverness and muscles. Players can also use the Internet, and the winning team is usually the one that best leverages its resources. The first team to successfully complete all tasks and vault over the finish line will receive a prize and assembly line of high-fives.
