Concert was great. Shuttle service, excellent. Beer, water and food prices were out of this world steep. Bring lots of $$$$.
Liked: The concert.
Disliked: Overpriced. Way overpriced beverages. $11.50 for a beer that would cost $5.00 at most other concerts I have attended this year.
Food was too spendy, the parking/road situation is LAME, but the venue itself is AMAZING. EXCELLENT sound, loved the ease of access to your seats, and the general vibe was great. I can not wait for my next concert here!
Liked: THE most amazing venue i have ever attended! Plenty of beer stands and restrooms. Layer after layer of pure unadulterated fun!
Disliked: The whole parking situation was a major FIASCO! I bought a parking pass, but by the time we finally got into a parking lot and realized it was the wrong one, it had already been 30 minutes just getting TO the lot! So we stayed put, and getting out!?! HOLY SMOKES! 2 freakin hours to leave the venue!?!? Are you kidding me!?!? The whole 2 lane road system is not safe or a good idea. And the food prices were absolutely ABSURD! $10 for ONE hamburger!?!??!!
People are advised to arrive early due to very poor traffic conditions, but the gates to parking don't open until 5 and the doors don't open until 6. This means at least two hours waiting in the hot sun and getting hungry and thirsty. To then find that the food vendors are not ready to serve (two of them didn't even have cash in the tills) makes for temper tantrums in the crowd. I suggest that the venue owners allow the concession people into the facility well ahead of the opening times.
Liked: Bathroom facilities are extraordinarily large! :)
Disliked: None of the vendors were ready to go when the doors finally opened at 6:00.

This place is pretty neat. Kind of a day-at-the-fair feel with the show you paid to see at the end. Yes, go early to avoid line-ups and traffic. Yes, you'll get home late. Yes, the food is expensive and unhealthy. But it's not so bad if you know what to expect. Again - like going to the fair but with mostly adults and their varying degrees of drunk. It's true that you can only drink in the beer gardens, but it seems to me like people are familiar with the concept of arriving early and getting as much beer down as they can before the show starts. It's two drinks per person at a time which is pretty exciting for us from British Columbia. All that to say that there is no need to worry about sobriety at your seat if you can drink beer quickly. What this place really needs is better infrastructure to get its patrons there and back home without having to drive, as it kind of sucked that the boyfriend had to watch me drink after his allocated beer. Hopefully this is in the plans for the future of this venue. But for now, if you drive, drink responsibly and keep some snacks and maybe a caffeinated beverage in your trunk for the ride home.
Liked: Beautiful surroundings; plentiful good local beer and no washroom line ups.
Disliked: The getting home part.

Liked: Extremely nice venue to go to.
Disliked: Takes 3 hours to get out after a concert - really sucks.
We had a great time at the concert. It would have been nice to get to go down front and dance and see the performer up close but that was strictly prohibited. It was a good experience overall.
Liked: Good Sound
Disliked: Parking and no dancing area
