While the Titanic won the title of the largest ship of its day, it’s still helping to break records 100 years after its fatal voyage. That’s because Creepy Ridge’s trifecta of haunted attractions includes a replica of the ship's cabin, and it’s currently being verified as the world’s largest hay wagon by the Guinness Book of World Records. You'll start your terrifying journey inside the ship, encountering the ghosts of many of the vessel's lost souls before docking and checking in to the Death Row Haunted Motel. There, you'll come face-to-face with other horrors, such as tiny toiletries that replenish themselves every time you leave. Should you survive long enough to check out, magic shows from Allen the Astonisher await to awe and inspire every half hour, and a nearby concession booth serves up hot dishes and drinks such as funnel cakes, hot chocolate, and cookies.
Proceeds from the night’s attractions go to help the Arc of Northern Kentucky’s mission to help provide opportunities to special-needs children.
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.
With two outdoor fields and one indoor heated field, paintballers find common ground to battle over yearlong. They strategize and maneuver around large inflatable barriers as a referee keeps watch over the game to ensure fair play. Players can bring their own equipment, or rent gear onsite, such as Tippmann 98 semiautomatic markers with antichop technology. The fields, complimented by a private party room, also make for ideal party sites, and 3rd Eye offers packages to suit birthdays and bachelor parties.
Elk Creek Hunt Club sharpens shotgunning skills with two sporting-clay courses that feature a total of 30 different shooting fields. After clambering aboard a two- or four-person golf cart, duos traverse 2,500 acres of preserve lands hot in the pursuit of clay targets. Upon arriving at a sporting-clay station, shooters prepare to tag fleeing clays as they veer toward the forest-covered or watery horizon. Afterward, visitors can rest their boots inside the Elk Creek Lodge and wrestle a hearty meal into their stomachs. The club's lunch menu lists a slew of sandwich and salad options, such as the Angus steak burger with cheese, dressed in the traditional garb of lettuce, tomato, and onion; dinnertime selections include a grilled, 16-ounce rib-eye steak and a cut of salmon enlivened with a bourbon glaze.
Skydive Indianapolis schools students in the ways of human aviation, shuttling pupils 2 miles into the atmosphere in a classroom the shape of a twin-propelled DeHavilland Otter aircraft before dispatching them into the wide, blue Midwestern skies. The half-day of tandem skydiving begins at the 5,000-square-foot hangar facility, where air-bound apprentices watch an Sintroductory video before meeting their instructor and conducting a prejump briefing that includes tips for mimicking birdcalls while in flight. After suiting up in a jump suit, harness, and other safety equipment, skydivers take flight in the 22-seat Otter, which can also accommodate spectators who prefer to ride with the pilot rather than watch jumps from the ground ($49 fee). Once student and instructor are safely secured, they jump, slicing through the air and free-falling for 60 seconds at speeds that approach 120 mph. As the pair breaches 5,000 feet, the instructor releases the parachute and his or her dorsal bat wings and the team floats for a five-minute canopy ride toward lush Indiana pastures.
