One of the newest lots to open outside of Newark airport, Newark Liberty Parking houses more than 1,500 self-park spaces less than a mile from the terminal. Shuttle buses?also known as land-planes?run to and from the airport every five to seven minutes, 365 days a year. Parking is based on 24-hour intervals, and long-term parking is available for extended trips. Frequent fliers may wish to take advantage of the frequent parkers program.
Partygoers expect a little friendly competition at birthday parties, whether it's to see who can hit the pinata the hardest or who can eat their cake the slowest. FunKart Party Company amps up these games with the roar of tiny engines zipping around a track. After traveling to the party site, staff members set up a 12'x16' raceway with room for up to six remote control cars. Partygoers take control of the cars, which have no slots, so they're free to drive them as intensely as they want, cutting off their opponents, doing donuts at each turn, or driving backwards to see if the miles will come off the tiny odometer. Cars race at scale speeds of up to 200 mph and the raceway can be set up either indoors or out.
Inside the pitch-black Touch Tunnel, you're completely blind. On your hands and knees, you crawl forward, relying solely on your other senses to lead you through the darkness. The tunnel is only 80 feet long, but the exit might as well be miles away. After finally emerging safe (and sighted) from the most popular exhibit at Liberty Science Center, a family could still spend four more hours at the many hands-on attractions and experiences designed to enlighten visitors about the power and fun of science.
All told, Liberty Science Center houses a dozen galleries for interactive exploration. Visitors can perform surgery on a 3D robotic simulator; tip-toe across a steel girder hovering 18 feet in the air; or even connect with more than 90 different animals, including giant fish and a family of tamarin monkeys. At I Explore, young scientists ages 2?5 learn about the world around them while launching colorful balls into the air or using a xylophone made of stone slabs. When it's time to relax, the whole family can visit the largest IMAX dome theater in the U.S., which transports onlookers from outer space to the deepest depths of the oceans and just about everywhere in between.
Tandoori Chef's tangerine walls and vibrant paintings warm diners ensconced at red-linen-topped tables, where they await steaming platters of the aromatic Indian cuisine from the bustling kitchen. Inside, chefs whip up a diverse repertoire of Northern Indian curry, tandoori, and rice dishes brimming with spice-laden veggies, chicken, shrimp, and lamb. A private dining area fills up to 30 bellies, and catering services bring the kitchen's nourishing warmth to party-goers or ravenous sasquatches grown too tall to fit through the front door.

What do you love most about your job? The smiles I see on the faces of my clients when I know that I have been a part of something so special to them that they will never forget. It's not [in] every profession that you get the chance to make a memory for somebody that will last a lifetime. I get the honor to do so, and do so with pride!
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer? Earlier this year we worked a wedding for a bride that was severely ill. She was very pleased with our work and wrote (to summarize), "You guys just made the party of a lifetime happen, which is not long for me, so thank you for allowing me to forget my problems for one night and smile forever!"
Anybody with a computer can record a song these days, but Big As Life Recording Studio LLC grants musicians access to more than just its digital recording facility. A professional producer collaborates on each session, helping flesh out the clients' ideas and bring out their strongest vocal performance. Once tracks are laid down, engineers mix, edit, and master each tune before burning them to CDs and making iTunes-friendly mp3s.
Big As Life's services don't end with recording – its team can film the session for DVDs, lease beats for future projects, and even sell your work. Inside the studio's 900-square-foot hall, nicknamed "The Chamber," musicians can also rehearse or launch their latest albums by converting the stage into a catapult.
