Drawing on half a century of automotive service, Midas helps drivers to prolong vehicle vigor with factory-recommended maintenance services. Mechanics pop car hoods to perform oil changes with standard and temperature-durable synthetic solutions, taking time to inspect belts, hoses, fluids, and air conditioners. Armed with EPA- and CARB-complying catalytic converters, the staff helps to shrink harmful emissions during muffler and exhaust-system checks. Trained technicians augment brake services with lifetime guarantees and curate healthy, evenly worn tires with rotations or replacements from Goodyear, Michelin, Firestone, and Bridgestone.
Open 24 hours a day with free shuttles departing every five to six minutes, Fly Away Airport Parking Services efficiently whisks travelers to the Nashville International Airport. At the fenced-in parking lot just five minutes from the terminal, valet attendants load customers' luggage onto the shuttles and keep watchful eyes on the parked cars at all hours. In addition to their eyes, strategically placed surveillance cameras oversee the entire facility and encourage vehicles to write postcards to their owners. Assuring overall security, the fence stays locked when the airport is closed and extra-bright lights illuminate the complex. Through Fly Away's car-wash and detailing services, staffers also attend to vehicles with hand washes, waxing, and vacuuming.
Since its inception more than 30 years ago, Express Oil Change & Service Center has treated cars to comprehensive yet convenient oil changes performed in 10 minutes. That tradition is continued today, in 170 shops sprinkled across 10 southern states, each staffed by a fleet of ASE-certified technicians who also submit autos to a range of maintenance and repair services, backed by warranties and environmentally conscious practices.
During the 10-minute full-service oil change, technicians don't just drain and recycle dirty fluids: they also put cars through the wringer by inspecting belts, hoses, and suspension systems, checking air filters, and sleuthing around the undercarriage for looming problems or secret piercings––all while customers wait comfortably in their car. In the service center, they call upon top equipment to rotate and balance tires, inspect brakes, and repair or replace parts, and use level 1 and level 2 computer diagnostics to correctly diagnose all manner of mechanical ailments.
Though its blue and pink neon lights and retro decor speak to times past, Surf's Up Carwash scrubs cars clean in a quick, modern-day automated wash house that subscribes to eco-friendly practices. Drivers pull up to an automated teller, follow a few touchscreen prompts, and, in about three minutes, drive off in a vehicle that sparkles from top to tire. During the wash, performed by power-minimizing machines, grime flows off of finishes with the help of biodegradable soap. Surf's Up also recycles 80% of its water and uses only 17 gallons of fresh water per wash, a process that’s more efficient than the typical at-home wash and easier than pouring soap down a waterfall and driving through it. All car washes also include complimentary access to Surf's Up's high-powered vacuums.
Pennzoil is a service sanctuary designed to revitalize four-wheeled friends. During your car's full-service oil change, an ASE-certified technician will replace sludgy motor juice with up to five quarts of new golden Pennzoil brand 5W30, 5W20, or 10W30 lubricant, as well as install a new filter. Other oil types are available for an additional charge. In addition to a comprehensive 16-point inspection, cars receive a pair of brand new RainX wiper blades (up to 22 inches) for navigating safely through rainstorms or Bunyan family funerals.
When patrons step into Lanes, Trains, & Automobiles Entertainment Depot, playful noises jostle their senses: the crash of bowling pins, the decisive zaps of laser-tag guns, the thunder of colliding bumper cars. The center shelters a spectrum of friendly competition under one roof, but at the heart are 32 bowling lanes. During open-bowling hours and late-night cosmic bowling, touchscreens tally strikes and automatic bumpers shift up and down to accommodate different players in case they decide to somersault down the lane.
Nearby, up to 16 laser-tag soldiers duck behind barrels and walls splattered with neon paint in the 2,500-square-foot Lazer Station. In the Spinzone, black lights and colorful spotlights swivel around a central traffic signal, which dictates the stops, starts, and illegal U-turns of bumper cars.
In the arcade, patrons battle for champion status and pick of pizza toppings at air-hockey tables, skee-ball machines, and racing video games. Professional competitors face off on flat-screen TVs at Tailgaters, an on-site eatery slinging burgers and pizza. Eight VIP bowling lanes, a designated party zone, and a stage for live entertainment and karaoke act as peaceful dignitaries in the 4,500-square-foot restaurant as well.
