ANGOLA – The Pokagon State Park slide is featured in the new book ‘The Bucket List North America – 1,000 Adventures Big and Small’.

The Pokagon Waterslide, which opened for the season last week, is one of five Indiana venues listed in the book.

“The Bucket List North America” ​​is one of many bucket list books that guide travelers. Many of them can be found on Amazon.

In a prepared statement, authors Paul Oswell and Kath Stathers said, “In this treasure trove of adventures, you’ll find a dazzling array of travel experiences to put on your ultimate North American bucket list. With color photographs and themed entries, this carefully curated list of 1,000 activities includes something for everyone.

The slide’s inclusion in the book began with an investigation by Sathers, said Janet Hartsuff, communications manager for the Steuben County Office of Tourism.

“Kath Stathers contacted the Steuben County Tourism Office in March and requested information as well as photos of the slide,” Hartsuff said. “We were happy to provide him with information and a color photograph of the slide is shown on page 131. It’s a great exhibit for Pokagon State Park and the county.”

There are only five spots listed in Indiana in the book. Each description in the book is relatively short and not all include photos. The slide description includes a photo provided by the Tourist Office. This is the only Indiana photo included in the book.

The 416-page book is available for purchase on Amazon. Its suggested retail price is $35. It was published by Universe Press and came out just in time for the holidays on November 23.
