The car speaks first, its engine growling. The driver responds with an accelerating heart and a tighter grip on the steering wheel. After trading words, the foot meets the gas pedal, and the two become one, a 2-ton chimera hurtling down the track. At Racing Adventures tracks across North America, man and machine sync up during high-speed experiences that resemble professional racing scenes. Each experience culls from a fleet of supersonic roadsters, including American classics like Corvettes and vintage Cobra replica racers. Professional driving coaches always ride along, ensuring a safe thrill ride by supervising drivers' technique and checking the passenger-side window for teenagers throwing eggs at the car.

Certified personal trainer Mechelle Haflich is familiar with both the highs and lows of physical health. As a bodybuilder, she has won competitions focused on superior strength, and as a registered massage therapist, she has eased injured muscles back into action. Both titles have proven essential in planning FitBody Studio, where she takes a holistic view on wellness through fitness, massage, and spa services. Alongside a team of highly credentialed instructors, therapists, and aestheticians, Mechelle's team adjusts her programs to suit each client's ambitions, which range from losing inches to being able to deadlift a locomotive.
On the exercise side of the curriculum, private training sessions and group classes build endurance—Vinyasa yoga and kickboxing sessions round out the stair climbs and cardio drills of the Bleachers class, which takes place inside the Colorado College football stadium. To repair overworked deltoids, the studio's massage programs relax tendons and target injuries with a mix of modalities. After workouts sculpt bodies, FitBody Studio’s spa polishes them smooth with waxing services and custom facials.
At Splash!, art and fun go together like canvas and paint. For three hours on Thursday and Saturday evenings, guests sip wine and local beer, listen to music, and meet new people while a resident artist guides them step-by-step through their personal take on the evening's painting. To make sure the subject is always fresh and unique, each evening's painting changes on a daily basis. Depending on the night they attend, guests may create anything from a landscape or city skyline to a row of autumn trees or a Van Gogh still-life. The acrylic paint dries fast, too, allowing fledgling artists to take their masterpiece home at the end of the night or trade them with their new friends. And this sense of socialization carries into the studio's unstructured activities as well—open-studio time where artists gather together to create their own one-of-a-kind masterpieces.
