The friendly staff at Power Sports Packages shuttles sports fiends to games and special events with all-inclusive sports travel packages. Departing from a base in Las Vegas, motorcoaches rumble through southern California, Arizona, and the surrounding areas to drop off passengers at horse races, ski resorts, and live mascot births for one-day trips or weekend getaways. Soon, Power Sports Packages plans to offer trips to other events such as baseball, football, and basketball games, as well as car races and hockey matches. Great for incentivizing employee behavior, bonding with friends, or proving to a skeptical child that Santa played quarterback in college, these upscale sporting experiences allow fans to relax and enjoy the game as Power Sports Packages handles the rest.
Captain Rod MacLennan has made the skies his part-time home ever since his first solo flight in 1960. Over his decades-long career, he has amassed more than 20,000 hours of flight time, working as a flight instructor, Eastern Airlines pilot, and Polar Air Cargo captain. Wanting to give the public a taste of what it means to fly a commercial airliner, he opened Airline Captain For A Day in 2009, acquiring a range of simulators that run from easily-handled Boeing 737-200 to the massive heft of a 757-200. With digital displays and real gauges, trainee pilots take off and land their charges while the simulator pod shifts and bucks, mimicking the feelings of being in a real plane or on the shoulders of a real T. rex.
When Rev. Ted McIlvenna and photographer Harry Mohney joined forces to create the Erotic Heritage Museum, they wanted a space that celebrated sexual pleasure and individual sexuality—two vital, natural aspects of the human experience. From galleries of vintage adult-film posters and Playboy covers to rare books of erotic art, the artifacts amassed in the more than 24,000-square-foot museum explore human sexuality's impacts on the arts. As the Las Vegas Review-Journal observed, approximately 50 monitors screen vintage films from the turn of the 20th century through the revolutionary film Deep Throat, and mannequins re-create the behind-the-scenes production sets of erotic works. Among the other exhibits, antique adult toys trace the history of pleasure, records of first-amendment disputes illustrate the ongoing fight for sexual expression, and Larry Flynt’s gold-plated wheelchair memorializes the day Flynt accidentally bumped into King Midas in an elevator. Throughout the year, special events further explore and examine sensuality through erotic poetry, naked yoga, and lectures.
Madame Tussaud began crafting wax likenesses in 1770s Paris, and a sense of history clings to her wax museums around the globe today—according to the Travel Channel’s Ghost Adventurers, the location is haunted by unsettled spirits. By day, the collection of wax sculptures fills the serene exhibits with characters ranging from daredevil Evel Knievel (complete with his original Harley Davidson and good-luck teddy bear) to Lady Gaga and Whoopi Goldberg. A Hugh Hefner figure, wearing the Playboy magnate’s signature smoking jacket, reclines on a bed, and a nightclub-themed section of the museum honors Las Vegas’s entertainment history with a waxen Elvis and Wayne Newton.
Velvet ropes no longer cordon figures off from the public, granting guests up-close-and-personal photo ops. Madame Tussauds Las Vegas honors its spooky roots with special late-night Scream events, a shriek-inducing tour through a maximum-security prison set interspersed with ghoulish wax figures and live actors.
