This Venue In Southern Utah Kinda Sucked… BEWARE!
Thursday night, I went to a the Theo Von comedy show in Springdale, Utah. The venue holding Theo's show was the OC Tanner Amphitheater. I loved the show. It was awesome, but the entire experience BESIDES the show... was less than awesome.
It was absolutely gorgeous up there. I mean, come on! It's Zion National Park! But there was A LOT that needed to be fixed if a BIG SHOW like Theo Von was going to take place up there.
The parking situation was a JOKE up there. Driving to the venue, about a mile out, a line of cars were piled up. A cop came out to the street and started directing us away from the venue. That cop told us to go park back in town... probably another mile away. I wasn't about to park two miles away from a venue. The residential neighborhood near the venue had signs all over, telling people they couldn't park there. I parked there anyway. At that point I was willing to get a ticket instead of showing up 40 minutes late for the show.
Once I got closer to the venue there were parking spots EVERYWHERE. There was a park with parking spots, a library with a full empty parking lot with signs saying they'll tow anyone parked in that parking lot if they weren't using the library. I couldn't believe the amount of places they couldn't had people park, but instead sent them back to town.
After walking for about 30 minutes, we made it to OC Tanner Amphitheater. There was TONS of people. Thousands. Now we found even MORE lines for drinks. Three Tents. One tent to get a wristband to get a beer. Then two other tents with lines to get in to actually get your beer or soda.
It didn't feel like OC Tanner Amphitheater was ready for such a big event. After the show, the thousands of people filled the streets walking to their vehicles, as other vehicles were trying to weave in and out of people in the pitch black night.
I really don't mean to be a whiner about this venue, but I don't think they were prepared for it. It made me really appreciate Tuacahn Amphitheater, and realize how organized they are over there. I hope eventually OC Tanner Amphitheater can get all that figured out, because it's a really beautiful venue!
