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.
Though Wheel Fun Rentals bicycle stables are scattered from sea to shining sea across the North American continent, the seeds of the enterprise were sown in Italy. On vacation in the late '80s, founder Brian McInerney discovered the four-wheeled Surrey cycle, a pedal-powered vehicle capable of carrying as many as six passengers. Before returning to the States, he made sure to pick up a full set of Surreys from the manufacturer, and a new chapter in his life began. Today, the business rents not only bikes and Surreys, but also multiple cycle-style mutants such as the three-wheeled Deuce Coupe and its cousin the Chopper. They even carry more advanced land vehicles such as electric cars and scooters. Kayaks, one-person pontoons, and stand-up paddle boards also unlock access to some of the country's wettest byways.
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.
A ultra-luxury sedan rolls up to the curb. The driver steps to the side and opens the door for you. For you. "What's that?" you say. "You're here to take me away? Wherever I want?" He nods. But not a frustrated one?a smiling nod, one that indicates that you're the one in charge today. Perhaps he even gives you a thumbs-up. So you slide in. Look at all this. These aren't just power windows. These are practically bay windows?in a car. This seat is a recliner. You're lounging in a limo, watching a seat-mounted TV, conducting business in a mobile office, and pretending your tablet contains the nuclear codes.

Denver Bike Bar takes going out to bars to a whole new level. The 16-person bike zooms from bar to bar at the direction of a designated driver, freeing passengers from the responsibilities of driving and accidentally becoming a taxi. Though guests cannot drink alcohol aboard the bike, they can imbibe during frequent stops at local microbreweries in LoDo.
