as a viewer of the VIP area in the past, my opinion is that its not the best view ever
its two smallish slivers of the very center area between the two stages. so basically, if you want to see the act on either stage, you have to get all over to that side of that viewing area...not terrible, but not optimal, but this doesnt concern me as i have alway shad a good view without it, so its a non issue!
my favorite thing about the viewing area is that they keep an aisle open so that you can easily get in and out while the music is going on
this is an issue during headliners and it will be nice for this nightblind gal to be able to get to the bathrooms without killing herself or someone else
as far as lines to get in, none of us refugee roomies from the kaatskill know cuz we always arrived mid-morning and drove to the door of the lodge...
i am thinking about posting a thread on the mtn jam board to ask a line up questions but probably wont as all they will be is guesses as no one has any direct experience as they have never had paid on site parking or car camping before!
i am guessing a lot of people will want to do both so who knows what flavor of a clusterfuck we will get
i went over to that board last week and people are PISSED about the pay to park or take a shuttle options...but hey, at least they dont have to shuttle all their gear on the shuttles!
i have a good feeling...i think it will work out fine and be wicked pissah
i never bought beer there...what kinds of beer did they vend?
