Both Splash Zone and Hurricane Bay restore allure to befouled buggies with soft-brush automatic car washes. Breadcrumb trails of spark plugs lure vehicles into a computerized prerinse that softens up caked-on mud and grime. After loosening sludge, the car wash blankets soggy sedans in soft brushes, allowing drivers seated inside to imagine that they're being eaten by a shag carpet. The wash then dispatches muck from the entire exterior and shines tires before an automatic dryer blasts away excess water. Drivers redeem their coupons at computerized kiosks outside the car wash and can upgrade to higher-priced washes for an additional fee.
As Super-Lube's name suggests, its signature service is the oil change. Technicians at its more than 50 locations lubricate engines with up to five quarts of premium oil. The comprehensive service, which requires no appointment, also comes with a 20-point maintenance check, and a free fluid top-off between changes. The technicians' handiwork extends beyond oil changes, too?they can change radiator fluid, swap out fuel filters, and replace broken windshield wiper blades.

Manning a fleet of Robinson R44 whirlybirds, the pilots of Tallahassee Helicopters introduce sightseers to the clouds through tours and commercial flights, and also train new crops of aspiring pilots. Flights depart from Tallahassee Regional Airport, shuttling passengers into the great blue yonder to see the downtown skyline, local country clubs, lakes, and parks from above. The service also offers lunch and dinner tours, allowing tourists to make a strong impression as they arrive at restaurants in style and carve their steaks with the helicopter’s whirling tail rotor.
The company also operates its own academy, where students begin with introductory flights that put them in control of the helicopter for 90% of their flying time. The full piloting program prepares students for their first solo flights, while the R44 transition program teaches already licensed pilots the nuances of operating the R44 helicopter.
