Toboggan Run Information
for Pokagon State Park (an Indiana State Park)

Pokagon's infamous toboggan run is always a crowd pleaser. So much so that there is always a long line and a long wait. PLAN ON IT! If you prepare then it won't be a hassle for you.

Pokagon has a limited number of toboggans. This is good in that it keeps the lines short, but bad because there are never enough toboggans to keep up with demand. The toboggans are rented by the hour on a first come first serve basis. Once the toboggans are gone then they start issuing numbers for a waiting list.

Some Tips:
- Get there when it opens
- Get there early in the season, before Dec. 21. It is refrigerated so weather is no concern.
- Plan a waiting activity.
- As you check back to see if your number is up, get another number. Then if you miss your call then you will have a backup.
- If you find yourself in a tough situation (i.e. four hundred numbers ahead of you) then fan out and start looking pitiful. If you play your cards right you can find somebody with an extra number because they observed tip #3.
- Dress Warmly (duh)
