How was your experience?
PARKING: We were told to park at saddleback church and there would be a shuttle to take us to the event. Well the trouble is Saddleback church is the size of a junior college campus...any it took 30+ minutes to locate the shuttle stop. We even parked, got out, and waited in an area with dozens of other people (including someone with the event) trying to catch the shuttle. After a while we just got back in our car and kept driving. Lucky we did, becasue that was the wrong spot! Once we got to the right lot it took about 15 min to get on a shuttle, and 5 min to get there. EVENT: Once inside this place was jam packed with people. The wait was 10-30 min for each station. They want to sell this as a fun cocktail party, but it was more like a hurry up an stand in the next line, because you only have 3 hours to visit all these stations (less time beacsue it took so long to get on the shuttle). The food and drink were great, but they were lacking in crowd control and trash cans. People were cutting lines and didn't know what line went to what station. Trash was abandoned everywhere becasue no one could find trash cans. To be fair: Vendors=5 Stars. Venue=4 Stars (need place, lighting could be better to see the animals at night) Event Cooridination= 1.5 Stars...
