Melissa Schmidt knows a thing or two about training. The owner and designer behind TNT Adventure—an open-air obstacle course—whipped herself into fighting form so that she could compete in a 50-mile ultramarathon and in the MS Run the US Relay Across America, where she ran approximately 160 miles over the course of 6 consecutive days.
At TNT Adventure, she opens up her training ground: an outdoor fitness playground filled with more than 20 obstacles. Kids as young as 5 are welcome to join in the fun, which includes group training or a choose-your-own-adventure style free-form workout where exercisers challenge themselves using whatever equipment they'd like. Obstacles include everything from classic incline monkey bars to an American Ninja Warrior-style 12' halfpipe complete with a cargo net.
When it comes to choosing a location synonymous with adrenalin, Hi-Liner Dual Racing Zip Lines couldn't have picked a better spot. Road America, Hi-Liner's home, plays host to high-octane NASCAR races, the Ferrari Challenge, and the AMA Pro Racing Superbike Doubleheader. And while zipliners don't quite reach the speeds of the vintage Ford Mustangs that often race at the track, they've been known to blow past the 50 mph mark along the 1,200-foot course—all while taking in views that pro racing couldn't hold a candle to.

Every year, Mayr Family Farm's seven-acre corn maze debuts a new design filled with twisting paths through the stalks. In the autumn, when the corn grows high above even the tallest heads, getting out can be a challenge that takes all day. When (and if) you do find the exit, you can spend the rest of the day picking pumpkins, riding on the hay wagon, and leaping in the bounce house. It's definitely worth staying until nightfall, when spooks take over the cornfield to create a haunted maze.
