Rothbury, MI – November 16, 2009. Giddyup into the Christmas season and join us at the Double JJ for the arrival of Santa Claus! Come see Santa gallop in by stagecoach at the Double JJ Resort the Friday after Thanksgiving and welcome the Christmas season to west Michigan in true Ranch style. On November 27 at 3:00pm, Santa takes center stage. Immediately following, enjoy milk and cookies, receive a small Christmas gift and get a picture with Santa. Tickets will be $5 per person.

For the rest of December, Santa will be stopping by the Double JJ for breakfast on Saturday mornings. December 5, 12, and 19 join Santa from 9:00am-10:30am at Rustler’s Roost in the Gold Rush Waterpark building for breakfast. Reservations are required for breakfast, and tickets are $6.00 for children and $9.00 for adults. After breakfast spend some time at the indoor water park. Splash with Santa combo tickets are available for $15.95 for children and $19.95 for adults and include breakfast with Santa and three hours in the Gold Rush Waterpark. Double JJ Ranch, Waterpark and Golf Resort is home to 60,000 square feet of indoor water park excitement. Kids can start their holiday season with a race down Western Michigan's tallest indoor waterslide. More thrill slides, a lazy/crazy river, wave pool, water fort, toddler pool, water basketball, and hot tubs offer TONS of ways to get wet 365 days a year.

Following in the Santa Claus spirit, the Double JJ Resort is proud to be partnering with Toys for Tots during the 2009 holiday season, and will be a drop off point for donations from now until Christmas. Anyone bringing an unwrapped toy valued at $10 or more will receive a coupon good for a buy one, get one free Waterpark Pass or Tubing Hill Pass. The community is encouraged to take this opportunity to donate to their neighbors in need, as all donations will stay in Newaygo County. Collection has already begun and will run through December 22nd.

The Double JJ Resort re-opened in July of 2009 under the management of Progressive Resorts, LLC. The Thoroughbred Golf Course, Gold Rush Waterpark, Back Forty Ranch, and Sundance Steakhouse are all open for business, with plans for the original Ranch location to re-open in 2010.
