Inspired by the same brainwaves as the Build-A-Bear Workshop, RIDEMAKERZ allows visitors construct a customized toy car from the axles up with dozens of options that add up to nearly 650 million unique combinations. Guests begin by choosing a body from a stock of Vipers, Corvettes, Mustangs, trucks, and hot rods that can then be accessorized with free stock parts or specialty chassis, tires, rims, and oil slicks. The hot-lava Chevy Camaro ($32) sports a metaphor for the rubber it plans to burn with orange flames on its sides, and the jewel-blue RZ Rascal body pairs its smooth curves with working headlights and taillights ($22). Sets of multicolored or racing slick tires maintain traction while pushed across carpets, hardwood floors, or up the sides of living-room furniture ($4 for two). Glistening hubcaps ($3–$4 for two), undercarriage-glow lighting ($10), and other car accessories offer further customization, while sound-effect chips ($3) relieve vocal cords strained by persistent engine imitations. Builders can also upgrade to a radio-controlled street chassis ($25) to assert hands-free control over the vehicle's movements.

An all-encompassing two-hour instruction session prepares aerial enthusiasts for the basics of earth-bound homecomings, covering topics of equipment, aircraft procedures, instructions for free falling, and how to make cheeks flap wildly. After safely soaring thousands of feet above ground, a licensed, professional plane-ditcher, and aspiring human backpack, straps to customers and leaps into a free-falling duet, complete with all of sky-diving's pleasure, but none of the stress of having to locate elusive ripcords. While still safely plummeting at increased altitudes, a state-of-the-art square parachute deploys, providing ample time for free-fallers to say their goodbyes to clouds they've befriended while frolicking in the sky. The skilled gravity tempters at Skydive Missouri have completed more than 15 high-altitude aircraft exits with physically impaired divers, providing exhilarating experiences for all enthusiastic cloud-hoppers.
