“One Way In... One Way Out”
Review of Mountain Park

Mountain Park
Reviewed June 12, 2012

... on the site of the old Mountain Park Amusement Park... it is now a concert venue for the Iron Horse Entertainment Group. Although a beautiful, intimate site for a concert with a lush lawn to spread out on... the problem is getting in and out of the place. We saw Bonnie Raitt here and bought the $75 tickets thinking we would be sitting inside a shed in case of rain. There is NO INSIDE SEATING here so save your money. You will get just as wet in the expensive seats as someone sitting on the far reaches of the lawn. And after sitting in the expensive seats I would prefer the lawn... great view, sound, and you can sprawl out and dance. Food and alcohol are available inside but the lines are long and the beer is $7 a pop. No re-entry so make sure you have all you need. We got here when the park opens... 5 o'clock... but if you are running late there is a good chance of missing the first part of the show because traffic is so slow. Main act comes on at 8. You can tail gate in the parking lot but uniformed Holyoke police officers patrol and scurry you in at concert time. Getting out must be a nightmare... again because there is only one way out. We left early and did not want to find out how long it would take to get out of there... my guess is an hour or two at least. If there is an artist that you really like then this is a nice under the stars venue. Unless you like sitting in traffic... get here early and leave early as well. Worth one visit anyway to decide for yourself.
