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.

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.

When bikes fall ill, they can drag themselves over to The Avenue Bicycle Station, who not only sells bikes but repairs and restores young and old two-wheelers alike. Owner John Hall and his employee Roger—whose shop is an outlet for Schwinn, Mongoose, and GT velocipedes, Star Trac spinner bikes and KHS, Manhattan, Free Agent, and Sun bicycles—have the chops and tools to fix up even the most busted of bicycles while extending the legacy of former store owners, Scott and Hanna Kelsey. Their pick-up and drop-off service lends a helping hand to busy riders on Tuesdays and Thursdays. To aid home bike technicians and entrepreneurs looking to invent Bike 2.0, they’ve amassed piles and piles of hard-to-find and vintage parts in a special salvage yard.

The Pete Dye Golf Trail links seven courses throughput Indiana and reaches its northern terminus at the 18-hole Mystic Hills Golf Club, a challenging course set amongst wetlands and woodlands, presenting elements of links and parkland layouts. Here, the golf course design skills that made Pete Dye a household name manifest through fairways rolling through native prairie grasses and sand bunkers standing sentry to each green—difficult obstacles for golfers accustomed to only hitting into fairways with bumpers. Furthermore, players should be wary of getting too comfortable with playing the links-style front nine, as the back nine presents a more traditional layout stocked with trees and other organic hazards.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 71 course
  • Total length of 6,780 yards from the back tees
  • Course rating of 73 from the back tees
  • Course slope of 133 from the back tees
  • Five sets of tees per hole
