What should I bring along?
Your ticket(s) or smart phone and a piece of photo ID for entry. As we are a licensed venue, security may ask to see ID upon entry. If you cannot produce relevant ID, then you may be refused entry, without refund. Be sure to bring ID along just in case!
It can get pretty cold up there as the sun goes down, so some warm clothes and a blanket always helps, but you can hire these from our box office if you need to. A $15 deposit is required, and upon return at the end of the night, $10 is given back.
No need to bring chairs - we’ve got enough deck chairs and bean bags for everybody.
Is the venue 18+ only?
