Security!???

#64994 2 years, 11 months ago
Whats the deal with security at Red Rocks? A friend says at a music fest this summer cops stood along the exit and shinned bright flash lights into the eyes of drivers as they exited and if the drivers did'nt look just right they got pulled. No way Red Rocks will be that extreme right?

Ive been to red rocks 5 times now, and never had any problems w/ security. Despite what i hear about the shakedown crackdowns at phish, I believe furthur does not want that kind of hassle for their fans, and most assuredly, red rocks does not want to hit anyone that hard. Cracking down on vending is one thing, random traffic stops are quite another. After the show, there are too many people leaving from too many exits to even attempt something like that. That being said, a designated driver is never a bad idea, anywhere you go. Be safe, cautious, even paranoid if nessecary. all are better than carelessness.

Thanks for the info.. Just because I'm not paranoid doesn't mean they aren't after me, right?

The cops are more concerned about directing traffic out of there, the north entrance bottlenecks, heading out the Morrison way is easier.

DD always a good idea, the roads at RR twist and turn so I'll guess you figure out before the highway whether you can pull it off.

The cops WILL kick you out of the lot a 1/2 hour or so after the show, but otherwise are a non presence.

no worries, they are just going to do whatever they can to get you off of their property as fast as they can, my only red rocks experience were the 3 nights last year and i had zero problems, as well as everyone else i know...just watch out for vending police if you are infringing copyrights
who else is gonna bring you, a broken arrow?
