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.
Chronicling the history of the Howard Shipyard, the Howard Steamboat Museum displays a plethora of steamboat artifacts within a 22-room Romanesque-revival mansion that was built in 1894. Visitors to the Howard mansion step into the nineteenth century, as they can admire original furnishings, brass chandeliers, stained-glass windows, intricate carvings, and primitive steam-powered laptop computers. While walking through the preserved halls, patrons have access to a collection of exhibits, including detailed full- and half-hull models, as well as more than 4,000 original photographs and paintings. Inspect the original paddlewheel from The Delta Queen, study artifacts taken directly from the Robert E. Lee and the Natchez, or browse the gift shop for the ideal present for a seafarer.
SunnySide Yoga's teachers lead classes through a wide range of yoga styles, from the structural alignment of Iyengar, to the fluid movements of Taoist, or the restorative poses of Hatha. Instructors guide students of all skill levels through the basics and finer points of yoga, helping them through breathing exercises and teaching poses through the use of props, such as straps, blankets, bricks, and multicolored wigs. Each teacher draws from unique life experiences and training⎯such as studying with masters in India or using yoga to overcome an illness⎯to instill a passion for the ancient discipline in their students.
Sportsdrome Speedway provides a four-act theatrical event of motorized drama. Transmission junkies will be able to revel in the spectacular sights and octane-based smells of multiple races, as each night features the Dromer Oval, the Dromer Figure 8, the Oval Xtreme, and the Xtreme Winged Figure 8 series. Suspend all cognitive thought as cars inevitably plow into each other during the speedway's figure-8 racing on its X-shaped track. Afterward, fans can try to get their favorite driver to autograph a racing hat or original copy of the Magna Carta.
PsychoMania Theater of Terror invites supplicants to the abandoned Translux theater to witness the unrest of the spirits disturbed by its construction atop the remains of a cemetery. Guests convene in a lobby that bears the tattered remnants of a classic movie house before entering the theater to view a chronicling of the building’s darkened past, including the horrifying opening weekend of Gigli. A journey through 12,000 square feet of the macabre commences, stocked with multitudinous horrors and hosted by the undead who reside there. For an additional $5, those battling a fear of enclosed spaces may face their fears head on with a one-way trip to the cemetery via the Buried Alive casket ride, where they can experience a thrill spookier than hiding in Stephen King's crawlspace.
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.
