Owners Larry and Angie Doherty utilize their more than 20 years of combined education and supervision experience to make Outside In Family Fun Center a safe, entertaining destination for adults and demi-adults alike. Putt away cares with a loved one during a saunter through the center's 18-hole minigolf course (prices varies by age), or set a youngster (12 years or younger) loose in one of the cartoon-clad inflatable bounce houses to see how long it takes for him or her to get tired or befriend a migrating bullfrog. Outside In is open seven days a week, from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Sunday.
Combining stadium-grade obstacles with challenging natural terrain, the Podium 1 MotoPlex tests the mettle of bike-bound athletes of all ages. When not busy hosting motocross races, track stewards carefully maintain the racing surface, working the soil and adding sawdust to keep it loamy, and extensively watering the track for dust-free conditions. The track also boasts a climate-controlled building for cooling off and a concessions area with nutrition-packed treats. On occasion, the track even welcomes nonwheeled competitors. The Podium 1 Adventure Run lets racers trade diesel engines and protective bodysuits for foot-powered speed and mud-splattered bare skin, converting the MotoPlex’s serpentine motocross track into a challenging 5K adventure race sprinkled with at least 20 obstacles, including mud slides and tire swing runs. Photos can be taken on the podium at the end of the race.
The organizers of Muddy Fanatic test racers' athleticism by plotting a 5K course through the Sellersburg woods. Participants charge through obstacles that range from slippery ascents out of creek beds to fire-lined paths. After competing to reach the finish line, participants must lend each other a hand to surmount Mud Mountain, a steep wall of earth rising above a pool of knee-deep water.
To celebrate the day's displays of fortitude, organizers pour every drinking-age participant a free beer, as well as provide additional drinks and food for purchase. Muddy Fanatic's team also encourages racers to self-nominate themselves for awards that include muddiest, best body, and best and worst costume. Audience members determine the winners by applauding and throwing roses at their favorites.
