Time Slots

Plungers are required to sign-up for a Plunge time and can do so at pre-check-in or day of check-in. Time slots are first come, first serve. All those on a Plunge team will be given the same Plunge time. A team captain or team representative can sign-up the entire team for a Plunge time slot, but remember that all team members need to check-in (if your team captain hasn’t checked you in) at pre-check-in or between 11am and 1pm on the day of the event in order to plunge. We have a new time slot system so we hope to have a faster experience for our participants!

Parking and Shuttle

A free shuttle bus route, sponsored by First Student Bus Company, will be available from 11 a.m. through the end of the Plunge. Shuttle buses are free to all participants and spectators. Because of the limited parking on-site, only handicap vehicle permits will be allowed to park at the beach. All others must ride the shuttle buses, which will run approximately every 15 minutes from the following locations:

7670 160th St W
Lakeville, MN 55044

Hosanna! Lutheran Church
9600 163rd St W
Lakeville, MN 55044

*Please Note for Hosanna!*

  • Pick up is in the northwest corner of the lot, near the garden.
  • You are not allowed inside Hosanna for any purpose and must stay in the designated shuttle area.
  • All vehicles must be removed by 4 p.m.
