Vamos! Lion Chariot To Offer Valentine’s Day Romance Rides

Need transportation for yourself and your date this Valentine’s Day? How about “transportainment” instead? If you’re looking for a memorable and romantic way to get to or from your V-Day date this year, Vamos! Lion Chariot has the answer: a Lion Chariot romance ride.

The chariot ride can consist of a one-way or roundtrip ride simply to and/or from your date destination, or your ride can include a special excursion featuring a loop around downtown State College. Vamos! even offers discounts for students, so wow-ing your date won’t break the bank.

Additionally, the chariot ride can be amped up by including flowers, chocolates, a personalized music playlist, candles, or other amenities to make the experience even more magical and unique.

Vamos! Lion Chariot is a pedicab touring service that has been giving rides around State College and Penn State since 2012, but this is the first year that a Valentine’s Day romance ride will be offered. Vamos! aims to make the rides fun, romantic, and memorable. Because the rides can include such personalized features, the ambiance of Vamos! is one that cannot be found in a cab or on the bus.

Todd Miner, owner of Lion Chariots, notes that “the Lion Chariot’s assets revolve around entertainment and experience,” pointing out that the rides are more than just a way of getting from point A to point B.

The Lion Chariot also offers romance rides for birthdays, anniversaries, and engagements, as well as general tours and taxi service around downtown State College and Penn State.

For more information on rates, or to schedule your future romantic ride, visit the Vamos! Lion Chariot’s website.
