APOLLO 11 – The Immersive Live Show
Park in the free parking across in Lot F orI closer to entry
We had dinner in Pasadena Old Town, then headed down into the Arroyo for the show.
Get there very early: free parking in Rose Bowl Lot K, but you still have a good walk to get to the entrance. There are some tables and chairs in the foyer part of the tent to enjoy some of the usual carnival/circus concessions available. But this production needs to hire a lot more staff: only two entrances to the venue, and each one only had one security person checking bags and one person scanning tickets (but two very long lines of ticketholders waiting to enter). Inside, there was only one register handling all the merchandise sales (another long line that took almost 30 minutes to get through maybe 20 customers). Really poor event management of the audience experience. (Also: bring your own empty tote bag if you might buy something or else you have to buy a $1 non-plastic bag there.)
Do NOT bring kids under 12 as they will be very bored.
Food and drinks were available for purchase at the venue....a beer cost $12. Food and drink could be taken into the theater.
Do not bring metal water bottles, totes, selfie sticks, or bags larger than a small wallet. Bring pre bought plastic water bottles for yourself if you don't want to be robbed inside with $7/ bottle
Arrive early so that you have time to park and walk. Getting out takes an hour so have drinks in your car for after
Park your car w/i 2-3 mile radius and take Uber to and from...It's soooooooo worth it!!!!
The weather was Sunny, mild wind, and cold after 10pm. I wore jeans, tank top, jean jacket, and tennis shoes.
It is really tough to get an Uber out of the Rose Bowl. It’s a freaking nightmare. Either take the shuttle or park there. Trust me! I got stranded there with no Uber’s left.
Check the Rose Bowl website for details but they don't allow purses or bags-- or at least it's very limited and specific about what you can bring in.
Tailgate! We parked on the golf course, so it seemed like a picnic. Had a great little pre-party before the show.
You can pre-purchase parking online to make it a little easier.
We used a water bubbler near us as food and drink too expensive to buy inside stadium.
It was a bit of a walk but all part of the atmosphere. We were in parking lot 2
