Lake Lanier Auto Repair keeps cars ready for the road with high-tech diagnostics and years of experience. The ASE-certified mechanics search out the underlying causes of engine-maintenance lights and unruly steering before balancing fluid levels, aligning wheels, and feeding the hamster whose running powers the car. Oil and tire changes help cars recover from daily wear and tear, whereas more thorough check-ups prepare drivers for cross-country trips. In addition to maintenance and repair work, the shop customizes autos by installing remote starters, roll cages, and entirely new interiors or exteriors.

Aside from taking place inside a 30-foot mobile video-game theater dressed with leather walls, hardwood floors, and a carpet runner, no Gamer vs. Gamer party is alike. That's because each soiree includes a choice of personalized touches??from face-painting sessions and glow-in-the-dark T-shirts to cakes shaped like game controllers??for each birthday child. These add-ons flavor events that unfold inside the self-powered, climate-controlled suite, which is also armed with wi-fi and streaming music capabilities. Under the watch of an adult game concierge, up to 12 partygoers lounging in leather game chairs select from a digital video game catalog ranging from Sonic & All-Stars Racing to NBA 2K14 to play on a 55-inch HDTV. If parents approve, Gamer vs. Gamer also supplies more mature options such as Halo 4. Also available for weddings and graduations, the suite can even be converted into a 3D movie theater for screenings of select flicks such as The Lion King. But all of these attractions are supplementary to the main event, the party itself, which Gamer vs. Gamer is dedicated to making wild and spectacular for every guest.

Voted as the area's best car wash from 2006–2008, Mill Creek Car Wash offers vehicular services ranging from detailing packages to oil changes and emissions testing. A lamb's-cloth auto-wash loosens dirt and debris from exteriors as cars await helpings of wheel cleaner, tire shine, and Rain-X Complete surface protectant. At the end of the wash, technicians pick up where their robotic counterparts left off, hand drying and vacuuming vehicles and whispering words of encouragement in their tire valves. Crews also dole out four types of detailing packages, sprucing up exteriors with a buff or hand wax and preserving interior landscapes with vinyl and leather conditioner. Meanwhile, technicians man the lube shop, where they fill engines with Castrol or Mobil 1 oil, flush transmissions, and replace batteries.
