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.
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.
Stray Boots is an interactive tour that sets friends and family members loose on an exhilarating, knowledge-fueled undertaking guided by clues, trivia, and riddles. They operate in cities across the country, dividing them into special themed tours that contain the historical sites, local areas of interest, or eccentric child mayors unique to each city. During the explorations, clues point the way to cultural hot spots, which Stray Boots communicates via their official mobile app. At least one player on the team will need an iPhone or Android phone to receive clues, and none of the self-guided tours require previous knowledge of the city. Adventurers play at their own pace—most tours take two to three hours to finish—which allows them to spend more time learning about the city and photographing vibrant fire hydrants for aquacentric scrapbooks.
