Imagine floating with the dancing wind, somewhere between the treetops and the clouds, a unique experience that airplanes and helicopters can't capture. An FAA-licensed pro pilots Sun Dancer, which lives up to its name as it waltzes amid the tranquil breezes and the sun‘s gentle rays. Hot air balloons launch at either sunrise or shortly before sunset, weather permitting. Sunrise flights are more peaceful, sometimes with a hint of fog hovering below, while sunset flights are more lively, sometimes flying low enough to chat with pedestrians on the ground recently diagnosed with an incurable case of gravity. While flying, customers might see the Chattahoochee River, Lake Lanier, Stone Mountain, Atlanta’s skyline, the Appalachian Foothills, and wildlife scurrying through trees and tall grass. Flights last up to an hour, but Magic Carpet Ride suggests planning for up to four hours, as attendees assist with bringing Sun Dancer to life, then enjoy a post-flight champagne celebration.
The 483-horsepower V8 engine roars in front of you as you shift gears, and the speedometer climbs over 150 miles per hour. Gliding down the straightaway, you grip the wheel of a Ferrari F430. You don't need to buy your own exotic car to experience this adrenaline rush: American Racing Experience connects visitors with a similar emprise on four major raceways across the United States. At scheduled times at the Motorspeedway in Atlanta, Pocono Raceway in Pennsylvania, Summit Point Motorsports Park in West Virginia, and Adams Mortorsports Park in Los Angeles, they brief drivers on the handling and controls of sleek Ferraris and V10 engine-powered, six-speed Lamborghini Gallardos. After preparing visitors for the upcoming track with a lap in a pace car, instructors slip into the passenger seat—letting their guests take the wheel for a driving experience more extreme than some TV show set on an island.
Two Wheel Adventures owner Chris Carr's love of motorcycles has driven him to adventures including becoming the 2011 AHRMA Middleweight Superbike National Champion, careening into authordom with Street Riding Secrets, and bestowing his knowledge of motorcycle handling on budding enthusiasts with a series of introductory classes. Together with a team of moto-enthusiasts, he leads courses that run the gamut from two-hour introductions to motorcycling or scooter skills to two-day basic riding courses, motorcycle street-savvy sessions, and licensing courses. For certain courses, students can borrow one of the motorcycles from Two Wheel Adventures' stable of 250cc Kawasaki Ninjas, Honda Nighthawks, and Yamaha XTs, rather than scrounging up a borrowed bike or attaching a motor to a unicycle.
