Lake Rudolph announces additions

From local sources

SANTA CLAUS — Lake Rudolph Campground & RV Resort is investing approximately $4 million in additions and improvements for the 2013 season.

Lake Rudolph is adding five water slides in a complex called Santa’s Splash Down WaterPark. Two are fiberglass slides previously owned by Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari. In addition, an inflatable water slide called the Trippo will feature three slides.

One of the fiberglass slides, 344 feet long, will be open and partially enclosed. The second slide, at 296 feet long, will be fully enclosed. Both slides will use inner tubes. At three stories tall, the Trippo is the world’s largest inflatable water slide. It will be a wet slide in summer and may be used as a dry slide during nonsummer months. The Trippo comprises three slides; the center one is 136 feet long and the side slides are each 113 feet long.

Lake Rudolph also will add 23 Rudolph’s Christmas Cabins, one of which will be handicap accessible.
With these additions, 54 Rudolph’s Christmas Cabins will be available.

Other improvements include more parking, new sidewalks and wider roads to improve traffic flow.
