About a dozen people took the plunge in the wave pool at Wild Adventures. They braved light rain and temperatures in the 50s.

As folks bundled up in jackets watched from the edge of the pool.

"I did this a couple years ago on a dare, so this year I mentioned doing it, and my kids said, ‘yeah, I'll do it too.’ About an hour before we came out here my husband said we can all get our heads examined together and I'll go too," says Melissa Roe.

The swimmers each received a t-shirt to commemorate the New Year’s dip.
