Toboggan Run at Pokagon State Park
Toboggan Run at Pokagon State Park has been thrilling visitors for 75 years. Indiana’s only refrigerated toboggan slide, Toboggan Run’s side-by-side quarter-mile tracks each have a total vertical drop of 90 feet, producing speeds between 35-40 miles per hour during the exhilarating 30-second ride.
Each toboggan carries a maximum of four riders, and rental costs just $10 per hour. The number of rides taken depends only on how busy the hill is and how quickly riders can trek up the walkway and mount the stairs of the 30-foot tower where Toboggan Run begins. For those in need of a break, a cozy warming lodge at the base of the slide has restrooms and concessions.
While the refrigerated track can operate without snow in temperatures above freezing, this winter attraction is even more fun when the snowflakes fall. Toboggan Run opens the Friday after Thanksgiving and operates on weekends through February, with extended weekday hours over the Christmas holidays. Visit www.tobogganrun.com for details.
