Now in its 23rd year, the I-X Indoor Amusement Park returns to the International Exposition Center with more than 20 acres of rides, games, and attractions. The indoor wonderland opens its doors from late March to early April on select dates, giving Cleveland families a springtime window to zip around on more than 30 thrill rides or read poetry to farm animals at a petting zoo. The newly added Cirque Shanghai dazzles eyes with a mammoth spectacle of daring acrobatics and motorcycle daredevilry, while daily Big Cat shows showcase the abilities of rescued tigers from a Sarasota, Florida, animal sanctuary. A collection of carnival fare, such as corn dogs, cotton candy, fresh-squeezed lemonade, and deep-fried baseball caps, rounds out the summer-like atmosphere.
Hovering around a cracked windshield, gloved mechanics discuss swapping in glass from Carlite, AP Technoglass, and other brands, all of which are designed to meet the vehicle manufacturer's requirements for safety and quality. Other crews move past, loading gear into vans to service vehicles at patrons’ offices and homes. They repair chips from rocks flung by truck tires or pennies flung by the parade floats millionaires always drive. The techs wield a resin that can prevent the chip from spreading and weakening the windshield's integrity and also fix and repair everything from door glass to moldings and mirrors.
The Kuhns' long line of entrepreneurship began in 1920 with a Sinclair Gas Station. Today, under it's third generation of family ownership, Jerry Kuhn's Kwik Car Wash is a full-service car wash that's been shining up Cleveland-area autos for the last 60 years. The Kuhns are still at the helm with a skilled team providing services such as exterior washes, interior vacuuming, and tire dressings. The wash techs clean cars quickly with basic washes or can spend up to one hour executing more thorough detailing. During those more thorough details, they glaze exteriors with Simoniz Hot Wax arch to bring out the paint job's original showroom color. Then, they make the interior sparkle by shampooing the car's carpets and dreadlocks and wiping down the dash and console.
The ASE-certified mechanics at Auto Repair Technology, Royal Car Care, and Automotive Specialty Services—with at least one Master technician on-site at all times—work to keep cars in peak physical condition. A few quarts of fresh engine oil ensures pistons continue pumping in lubricated harmony, relieved of the dirty sludge that was threatening to create internal friction and attracting mechanical-engineering students. After garnishing the oil change with a new filter, the mechanics lube up the chassis and rotate the tires to maintain even tread wear, then comb through the car point by point and inspect brakes, airbags, and ejector seats to ensure each part lives up to rigorous safety standards. Loaner cars are available for customers who feel the urge to drive while their vehicles are being serviced.
