Uber offers haute wheels — and a helicopter — for Final Four weekend in Dallas
With Final Four upon us, Uber Dallas is hooking up locals and visitors with uber-cool methods of transportation to safely and stylishly enjoy everything the weekend has to offer. Whether you are going to the games, the March Madness Music Festival or just joining friends at watching parties, the transportation app has you covered.
Ultimate #UberHoops Trick Shot Contest
Users are invited to record and submit their ultimate trick shot by Sunday, April 6, for a chance to win $500 worth of Uber credit. Check out the video above, starring Mavs basketball star Shawn "The Matrix" Marion, for inspiration.
For a weekend this big, you had to know Uber would bring in some special wheels. From Friday-Sunday, get around celebrity-style with the UberSPRINTER Mercedes Benz, which seats up to 12.
Speaking of celebrity style, on April 6, Uber is offering Dallasites and visitors the chance to see all the city hot spots UberCHOPPER. All users have to do is pop open the app, toggle over to UberCHOPPER, set their pick-up location and get ready for a great ride.
For $400 the requester and one friend can experience a 25- to 30-minute helicopter tour of Dallas complete with a round-trip pick-up/drop-off with UberBLACK — and, of course, Uber swag. This offer, provided by Sky Helicopters, is weather permitting.
Uber is also partnering with Southwest Airlines to bring the same "Luv" in the sky to the streets. You can read more about this partnership, but basically it boils down to a ride-four-times-get-one-ride-free deal.
From Friday to Monday, users can choose from a series of luxury vehicles, including Bentleys, Rolls Royce, Maybach, Fisker and Mercedes G Wagon. Say what? You know all those $30,000 millionaires are going to be all over this one.

Be safe out there, friends. And have fun.
