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 3-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 3-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 best to call in advance
for a reservation. The Ultimate Taxi is in operation
from 7pm to 10pm most nights.
