Xtremenasium-1

Owner Kenny Schell stands in the future site of Xtremenasium, a 20,000-square foot building between the existing Big Lots and Office Depot stores in Clarksville, that will become an adrenaline pumping trampoline activity center for the Southern Indiana area. 

CLARKSVILLE — Plans for a Clarksville trampoline and “ninja challenge” park have been pushed back to a tentative January opening date.

Kenny Schell, the owner of Xtremenasium, which is coming to 706 E. Lewis and Clark Parkway, initially planned to open the business in November. Now, his goal is the second week of January.

“I want to make sure everything’s right before we get that far,” Schell said.

Xtremenasium will contain a trampoline area, an “American Ninja Warrior” style obstacle course, a bouldering wall and more. A smoothie and juice bar also have been added to the plans for the trampoline park, which Schell hopes will fit in with the “health aspect” of his venture.

Schell reported that he has been fielding almost constant calls from anxious community members about Xtremenasium since July, when he announced plans to open it.

Currently, Schell, who also owns Asylum Xtreme and Xtreme Ink and Piercing in Clarksville, is working on installing trampolines at Xtremenasium and waiting on a permit from the Department of Homeland Security.
