Last week I saw Diana Ross in concert at the Filene Center. I understand that Wolftrap is more than just that, but consists of some smaller rooms amid a park. It will soon (if not already depending on when you read this) be served by a stop on Metro's Silver Line, adding an additional option to get there and perhaps relieving some automobile congestion. The problem is that a major traffic bottleneck can form on concerts, and delays can easily be over an hour forcing you to miss as much as half of the concert. Thankfully, me and my guest only missed a few songs of the opener. The staff was nice and professional, and a concert schedule is conveniently placed by the exits, and the Will Call lines were short. But as described arriving exiting can turn into a game of bumper cars that forced us to not move for 30 minutes. Consider taking the Metro's Silver Line stop, it will only be a 10 minute walk to the gate and consider driving through Tysons (Corner) if you want to shunpike and/or park at one of the Metro stations there or upstream if you're coming via I-495. Note that while there is a fee for the concert and grounds, walking on parts of the venue is free.
