Check In

We have streamlined our check-in process, but can never predict when crowds will be heaviest. We encourage you to arrive early to check-in on the day of the event!

All participants MUST check-in prior to Plunging!

What are some tips to make check-in go faster?

What do I wear to Plunge?

You can wear whatever you want to Plunge – bathing suit, street clothes and even costumes!

What else should I bring to Plunge?

For the best Plunge experience, make sure to bring the following:

  • A towel to dry off and warm up with.

  • Old shoes, aquatic shoes, etc. Don’t forget to bring a pair of dry shoes to wear afterwards.

  • A duffel bag, backpack, garbage bag, etc. It’s a good idea to bring a bag for dry clothes and your Plunge incentives, as well as a plastic bag for your wet clothes.

  • Dry replacement clothes. After you’re done Plunging, it’s nice to have some warm and dry clothes to party in.

  • Another Plunger! Recruit a friend, family member, co-worker or acquaintance and get them to Plunge with you. It’s always more fun to Plunge with someone!

How else can I have an awesome Plunge experience?

  • Leave valuables at home or with a spectator.

  • Carpool! Parking can be crowded so help us out by coming as a group.

  • Bring your friends, families, coworkers, dogs etc. The more the merrier!

We’ll see you at Convention Hall on January 1, 2019

Happy Plunging!
