People love to get out and play in the snow - from skiing and snowboarding to snow angels, snowball fights, and sledding. Who knows when we will see any serious snow here in Southern Indiana? So, what do you do when there is no snow? There is a state park in Northern Indiana, that has figured out how to provide some serious sledding regardless of the amount of snow on the ground.

Toboggan Run
Facebook/Indiana State Parks

For over 85 years, fun-loving families have been visiting Indiana's Pokagon State Park, home of TOBOGGAN RUN. Riders climb to the top of a 30-foot tower before hopping on a toboggan and heading down a 90-foot vertical drop, reaching speeds up to 40 mph. The Toboggan Run provides approximately 30 seconds of thrills and chills over the quarter-mile course, and the refrigerated track means you can get your slide on whether there is snow on the ground or not.

Perhaps the coolest thing (pardon the pun) about Toboggan Run is the cost. No, it's not free - that would be too cool - but, for just $20 an hour, you can ride and slide as much as you want/can.

Toboggan Run re-opens on November 23 and runs through February 25, 2004. The hours of operation are Saturdays and Sundays from 10am-5:30pm. The Toboggan has extended hours during winter break and is open on New Year’s Day, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, and Presidents Day.

There are a bunch of famous folks that everyone knows were born in Indiana, but there are even more that you didn't know about. Most of this list is arranged in alphabetical order, except for the handful of celebrities born in our neck of the woods here in southern Indiana. I gotta give them a little preferential treatment.
