Underwater World Scuba Center offers scuba-diving courses that take students from the shallows of a heated indoor swimming pool at its dive shop to the depths of the ocean in faraway places such as Fiji and the Cayman Islands. Open-water certification classes cover breathing techniques and safety regulations for beginners, whereas advanced certification courses give pupils enough skills to explore the depths as a master diver or marine-life photographer. The center's trainers also provide guidance to customers who are purchasing equipment, service and repair gear, and organize scuba trips to exotic locations.
When you're on a tight schedule, the last thing you want to do is spend time trying to find a parking spot. This is especially true when you have a flight to catch, which is why the team members at Park-N-Go Airport Parking make getting to your terminal as easy as possible. They offer both valet and self-service parking in their well-lit lot, with gates open and monitored 24 hours a day so clients know they and their cars are safe at all hours. Once cars are parked, staff helps clients carry their bags to the shuttle, which delivers fliers safely to Dayton International Airport in four minutes. The staff also can complete optional services to keep cars in prime condition while clients are away, such as changing oil, washing exteriors, or fully detailing vehicles. Clients who opt for the valet service even have their car prepared for their arrival, with attendants ensuring their ride is free of morning breath and the perfect temperature for the ride home.
Indianapolis Sports Car Rental sweetens the thrill of driving a sports car by eliminating the commitment involved with buying one. The company puts drivers temporarily behind the wheel of automobiles such as the Chevrolet Camaro SS, a 400-horsepower beauty that accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.7 seconds. The company's 24-hour rentals provide transportation for weddings or special events, and longer rentals facilitate weekend trips or journeys across the state.
After purchasing their first limo—a 1965 Cadillac Factory Formal—in 1978, the dedicated valets, chauffeurs, and technicians at Westwind began to build a fleet of stretch Jeeps, shuttles, and buses. Today, their shiny stretch vehicles tote passengers to and from the airport while customers’ cars rest safely in the comfort of a garage that’s heated to reduce potential cold-weather car troubles or strange sniffling noises from the engine. While lodging at Westwind, vehicles may be treated to life-extending maintenance or beautifying detail treatments as skilled technicians switch out old motor oil or buff and polish paint jobs. The garage’s luxurious lineup of shuttles, vans, and limos transports guests in style, whether carrying commuters to the airport in a limo or celebrating a wedding with a 14-passenger stretch SUV.
Dale Jarrett Racing Adventure places novice passengers alongside professional drivers for ride-along experiences on Talladega Superspeedway. At 2.66 miles around, Talladega Superspeedway is the largest oval racetrack in the Sprint Cup Series and is well-known throughout motorsports. Passengers circumnavigate the speedy circle at speeds of up to 175 mph aboard real racecars once owned by such drivers as Mark Martin, Michael Waltrip, and Bobby Labonte. Before embarking, riders receive safety training and suit up in a full fire suit complete with a helmet with facemask and Hans Device, the same head restraint used by professional heavy-metal guitarists. Talladega Superspeedway is located next to the International Motorsports Hall of Fame, which is open daily to visitors.
Eight bags. Two platforms. Two six-inch holes. One distinctly American game. The origins of cornhole are shrouded in mystery. Some say it derives from a German game, while others claim it is a descendant of a similar sport played by Native Americans. But one thing is certain?it's serious business. That's why the American Cornhole Organization was formed in 2005. By setting the rules, establishing annual tournaments and competitions, and firmly banning the practice of using trained birds to dunk bags, these referees have codified the sport and elevate it to a professional level.
