Re: *** Official Syracuse, NY 2020 ***

Ok vip parking is really hot or miss too.
my friend and I both had vip and were parked about 30 cars apart. I was out in 30 mins, he was in 90

The orange lot is approx .8 miles from the gate so if you are using the foot bridge it is a mile min walk.
Best western is the closest hotel but not truly Walking distance due to the highway.
Pit is 500 people according to venue staff
Lawn has good views from the view times I have been on it, actually one of the best lawns I have been on
