Inside Amhurst Asylum, which is rumored to have housed a real psychiatric hospital in the 1920s, things have gone terribly awry. Those who venture into its depths find remnants of what Dr. Amhurst was experimenting with before the asylum was shut down. His experiments were far ranging and often involved gruesome transplants of limbs and organs, all in the hopes of saving his wife from a degenerative disease. Some of his patients still roam the halls, and attempt to reclaim their phantom limbs from unsuspecting visitors in the asylum's darkest corners. The grounds are so scary, in fact, that only the most seasoned adventurers may enter—children younger than 10 aren't allowed in, and children younger than 13 must be accompanied by an adult or Poltergeist-protection vest.

During the Gary SouthShore RailCats' inaugural season in 2002, the players spent an estimated 200 hours on buses—traveling approximately 12,000 miles without their own ballpark to call home. Indeed, the diamond at U.S. Steel Yard was still under construction, forcing the team to play its entire first season on the road. But while the trip could have been a rocky way for an organization to start out, it instead forecasted a wild ride ahead in which the RailCats never stopped moving. After just four years, the RailCats captured their first Northern League title, marking the first of five straight appearances in the championship series—a Northern League record.

Despite that first year away from home, the RailCats seem to have settled in well at U.S. Steel Yard. Within the park, views of the South Shore commuter train remind fans of the team's origins, and a 55-foot scoreboard towers over left-centerfield in much the same way early pitchers once towered over batters from atop a stack of milk crates.

Mudderland transmutes one of the Midwest's largest motocross tracks into a swampy test of endurance, challenging thrill-seekers across 3.5 miles of military-style obstacles. Unfurled across the site of a WWII munitions factory, the one-day, full-body assault sends participants running, climbing, and crawling through a lineup of natural barriers, including a 19-foot concrete wall that sprouted from a radioactive apple seed during the 1940s. As limbs splash through ponds, slither through tunnels, and flail wildly while soaring down monstrous slip and slides, spectators bask in the muddy melee from elevated bleachers and VIP viewing decks. Afterward, fresh water bursts from the course's showers to blast away dirt and reveal each participant's new layer of confidence.
