Jetpack America seems like a name from the height of retro-futurism, when flying cars and moon hotels were just around the corner. Now, science has delivered a jet pack?and this one runs on of water?empowering the wearer to soar over the calm waters of lakes and bays while diving and rocketing about at will.
The flight instructors here first help participants learn the ropes with a bit of classroom time and a safety video. After that, potential pilots don a model jetpack for some hands-on training on dry land. Then it's time to dive on in, with instructors staying nearby on boats to provide guidance throughout each 15- to 50-minute flight session. Afterward, they award every flyer with a pilot certificate and a quick bit of advice on how to adjust to living in the future.
At Spring Mountain Motor Resort and Country Club, luxury meets asphalt: the facility's resort-style clubhouse and amenities coexist with three racing tracks encompassing 4 miles of roadway. Visit the club for its restaurant and lounge, pool and spa, racquetball court, climbing wall, and workout facilities. The adjacent racetracks boast more than 20 unique configurations, which factor into the lessons at three resident driving schools.
The instructors at the resort’s Ron Fellows Performance Driving School train students from behind the wheel of current-model Corvettes. Students learn to navigate a purpose-built road course in a safe, controlled environment. The club’s Radical Division services the club's fleet of Radical racecars—six-speed and up to 500-horsepower machines that visitors can climb into for ride-along sessions with instructors or test on their own. During driving classes, students and their families gain access to parts of the club normally open to members only.
Whinnies of anticipation can often be heard from the stables of Mount Charleston Trail Rides, where well-mannered horses and ponies wait to ferry riders down trails flanked by whistling ponderosa pines, junipers, and aspens. Led by cowboy guides, small groups hop into saddles and embark on scenic explorations of the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest and its surrounding areas. With crisp air that normally averages 30 degrees cooler than the Las Vegas Valley, the foothills and canyons offer a welcome respite from the heat of the desert. When the temperatures dip too low for horseback rides, the ranch keeps its trusty steeds busy with carriage rides, sleigh rides, and a Sadie Hawkins dance with unicorns from the neighboring forest.

What sets your business apart from your competition?
We are the evolution of nightclub hopping. The Q Party Shuttle is Vegas' 1st LGBT party bus that shuttles partiers to select nightclubs without the need for a group. We do not put time constraints on our partiers' time like other club crawls. If one club is not to their liking they can re-board the shuttle and hop to the next venue. Our partiers can do this all night. The party bus comes stocked with drinks, party favors, light batons, and premium snacks and we have arranged drink specials at select venues for our riders.
What was the inspiration for starting this business?
The LGBT club and bar scene is very active but each venue is a considerable distance from the next. We wanted more convenience, safety, and simplicity for our nights out without losing our buzz and the excitement of the moment. We found that having a party between the parties was the best way to fulfull this need.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
We are more than a typical party bus. We want to elevate our partiers' nightlife experience in Vegas and very soon we will have special guests from the Vegas social scene on board entertaining riders. We want to be seen as an alternative to drunk / buzzed driving or dealing with the hassle of parking and driving from club to club. In addition to offering this shuttle service on Friday and Saturdays we are also available for charter service to any reveler that wants a party bus pre-decked out in party favors.
What?s your favorite part about your job?
Being the conduit for not only the LGBT nightlife scene to the best spots in Vegas but also a conduit for introducing our future customers to places and people they may have never met otherwise.

Toxins can build up in bodily systems over the course of years, and removing all those toxins can often take extreme measures. At Las Vegas Colon Hydrotherapy, clients can free themselves of burdening toxins during treatments delivered by a caring staff lead by a 20-year veteran of the field, certified I-ACT colonics instructor and natural-health professional Donna DeCarolis.
During the signature colon-hydrotherapy session, a client relaxes amid warmed pillows and fragrant aromatherapy as gentle meditation music plays. Through a small, pencil-size tube, filtered water floods the colon and carries away built-up waste while a therapist rubs essential oils into strategic points on the hands and feet to promote relaxation. Other methods of detoxification include guided dietary cleanses, detox footbaths, and the center's infrared sauna, which works to purge chemicals and heavy metals more thoroughly than deleting the Metallica MP3s from your computer. Other helpful services include nutritional counseling using Zyto, emotional counseling using Evox, several modalities of massages, and body wraps.
Visitors who want post-secondary education in colon hydrotherapy attend the Tiller Mind Body–approved classes, during which they can learn how to properly operate colon-hydrotherapy equipment, as well as how to operate their own offices.
