Sunday is Father’s Day. And if your dad’s one of the cool guys, a department store tie ain’t gonna cut it. Instead, give your dad the gift of an extreme experience he won’t forget. The TauBu Girls offer their top pics for slammin’ Father’s Day surprises.
- TauBu Girl Ricke’s pick – Shark Diving: Head for the coast and take your dad for a dip with some finned friends. Diving with the sharks, especially in South Florida and the Bahamas, is becoming an insanely popular attraction. And you don’t need to be a master diver. You and Dad can make your dive in a cage, which allows you to get up close and personal with these underwater predators while safely behind bars (not a phrase you typically like to associate with dear ol’ Dad, but you get the point in this case). If you and Pops happen to be Advanced Open Water Certified, then you might get the option of shark diving cageless.
- TauBu Girl Diamond’s pick – Exotics Racing: If Dad’s more of a landlubber, then pack up and head to Vegas, baby. Make your way to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway for an Exotics Racing experience. Dad gets his choice of amazing jaw-dropping rides like the Lamborghini Aventador LP700, Ferrari 458 Italia and McLaren MP4-12C. Packages range from a 2-lap ride-along, to five laps behind the wheel to 100 laps with a private coach. If Dad’s always dreamed of being a racecar driver, this is the next best thing.
- TauBu Girl Aubrey’s pick – Air Combat Flying: Is Dad’s always had an eye for the sky, head to Phoenix for a Top Gun Fighter Pilot experience with Fighter Combat International. Dad will take the controls and fly with an actual military fighter pilot on an an as-real-as-it-gets mission. He’ll fly multiple real air combat engagements against the adversary in an Extra 300L, the world’s highest performance aerobatic airplane equipped with a gunsight. Only the bullets are simulated. Dad can choose half-day, two-day or five-day adventure. Or, he can opt for the Air Show Pilot experience flying air show maneuvers like loops, hammerheads, torque rolls, tumbles, etc.
Now, doesn’t that dinner at the local steak joint and pin-striped tie you were planning sound pathetic? Man up and do right by the man who raised you. Got other extreme Father’s Day gift ideas? Post them on the TauBu Facebook fan page.
