The North American Journeys (NAJ) Group’s 2015 Receptive Tour Operator (RTO) Summit happened in Orlando earlier this week and it appears that SPEEDVEGAS is quickly making its way into the fast lane of the tourism and travel sphere.
At the event, the NAJ Group selected a small handful of companies to receive the honor of their “Coolest New Products” award. As described by one of the judges in the selection process, “‘Coolness’ is classically defined as something that is fashionable and impressive at the same time. Beyond that, it’s hard to define but we all know it when we see it.” With only five products being selected for this award, it is our pleasure to announce that your favorite new Las Vegas exotic driving experience is one of the lucky few.
While it’s true that SPEEDVEGAS is definitely one of the coolest new products for next year, we also had the pleasure of sharing this honor with four other cool new products. If you’re making your way to the eastern end of the country anytime soon, be sure to check out these awesome, new, award-winning experiences.
- Louisville CVB - The Urban Bourbon Experience: For the people of Louisville, bourbon isn’t just something to drink at a bar with your friends, it’s a way of life. This bourbon experience encourages its patrons to partake in all the wondrous things that the classic American whiskey has brought us. With a half-dozen distilleries all within walking distance of each other in downtown Louisville, and with more scheduled to open up within the next couple of years, it certainly is a great way to earn your Bourbon County Citizenship.
- THE RIDE, New York City: THE RIDE is the new hottest way to immerse yourself in all the adventure that The Big Apple has to offer. Passengers board the custom-built, multi-million dollar motorcoach and watch the city pass by them for a little over an hour. The motorcoach sports theater-style seating and has a pair of entertaining on-board hosts narrating the adventure that stops at certain points along the way, allowing its passengers to enjoy live performances with the New York sidewalk as its stage. Bonus points because we do love a company that commits to an ALL CAPS stylized name.
- North River Lobster Company: No reservation? No problem at the only floating lobster shack in New York City. Passengers come aboard at its dock in the Hudson River and make their pick from a wide variety of seafood staples as they enjoy incredible views of the Empire State Building and the Midtown skyline. The floating restaurant features a raw bar with regional favorites such as oysters, littleneck clams and Jonah Crab Claws from around the area. The sailing schedule is designed to allow passengers to take full advantage of quick lobster lunches, happy hour drinks or even sunset dinners in this unique, dining experience.
- Wild Walk at the Wild Center in the Adirondacks: For the outdoorsy types looking for a unique adventure, the Wild Walk is one of the most breathtaking experiences in the entire country. The Wild Walk near Lake Placid, New York is a 1,250-foot treetop network of bridges and platforms that allows visitors spectacular views of the surrounding Adirondacks Mountains and the over 900 live animals that call it home. With views for more than 25 miles, this wildlife attraction is already recognized as one of the top destinations in the state of New York with over 50,000 visits a month.
