This isn’t your ordinary taxi ride! The Ultimate Taxi is actually entertainment that is not to be missed. This is a thirty to forty minute musical ride around Aspen – but it’s not like any other ride you will take in your lifetime.
The taxi you will be riding in is a 1978 Checker cab. It has been greatly modified and boasts four red lasers, a laser projector, black light effects, light washers, light orbs, mini-strobes, color changing fiber optics, a sound system, stage lights, a mirror ball, a fog machine, a keyboard, digital drums, a digital camera, a DV cam, a notebook computer, a printer, and much, much more.
Your driver will be Jon Barnes, and he has been driving tourists around Aspen since 1984. He throws in a pair of three-D glasses, so you can view Aspen as you never have before. Featured online, in radio interviews, magazines, and newspapers, the Ultimate Taxi has become very popular. Many famous people have taken this cab ride as well, including Clint Eastwood and Jerry Seinfeld.
Get ready for a wild ride! Jon plays the keyboard and the horn while driving! With your Three-D glasses and the other toys that are included in the ride, combined with the psychedelic lighting effects, this is one ride that you will never forget! In fact, Jon makes sure of it, because there will be pictures to help you remember the event.
Make sure you buy some souvenirs before you leave. The Ultimate Taxi gift store is located right outside the doors, in the trunk. You will also have a web page memory of your ride in the Ultimate Taxi hosted on Jon’s server for all time. Take your toys and 3-D glasses home with you as well.
The Ultimate Taxi is not a ‘normal’ taxi ride. You don’t call Jon Barnes to take you where you want to go. The Ultimate Taxi is more of a musical show and adventure. It has been called the world’s smallest recording studio.
Make sure that you get your Ultimate Taxi ride while you are in Aspen, and join the ranks of Ivana, Kevin Costner, George Hamilton, Jerry Jeff Walker, Dudley Moore, the Beatles, Clint Eastwood, Jerry Seinfeld, and even Regis Philbin! Due to the popularity of the Ultimate Taxi, it is probably most outstanding to call in advance for a reservation. The Ultimate Taxi is in operation from 7pm to 10pm most nights.
