We hope you are excited for Mountain Music Festival happening this week at ACE Adventure Resort. We wanted to get you some information to speed up your arrival and fill you in on all the details for this exciting weekend only hours away!
Arrival to the Mountain
The campground will open daily at 12:00 PM for new arrivals that day. Be sure you have your e-ticket with QR code printed out or easily accessible on your phone when you arrive. If everyone in your vehicle has their tickets as you pull up to the resort you can get checked in without leaving your car. The ticket attendants will scan the QR code on your ticket to check you into the event. If you need to purchase additional tickets, parking passes, early arrival or anything else you will be directed into the Welcome Center.
Don’t forget your parking pass. All vehicles entering the campground will need a parking pass. These can be purchased in advance or upon arrival. Only General Admission Parking Passes will be sold at the gate.
If you have an early arrival pass you are able to arrive on the day designated on your early arrival ticket. You MUST also possess a 3-Day Ticket OR a 2-Day Ticket with Thursday Only Camping Pass.
All camping is car camping and you will be camping next to your vehicle. Please be aware that you will be assigned a parking spot and camping spot in the order in which you arrive. Our parking attendants are not able to “hold spots” for later arrivals. If you arrive prior to the rest of your camping party we suggest you hang out around the bottom of the mountain. Stop by the waterpark or have a snack at the bar while you wait for the rest of your party to arrive. Once your camping group is all onsite then you can make your way to the Mountaintop Campground together so you can camp together. You are welcome to leave your campsite but we strongly suggest that you keep your vehicle in place one parked for the weekend to ensure your space is not taken by a rogue camper.
Ride the Shuttle
ACE Adventure Resort will provide a free shuttle bus that will travel the property 24 hours a day starting at noon on Thursday – 9AM on Sunday morning. Look for designated shuttle stops or wave down one of the big blue buses if you are looking for a ride. For the guests staying in cabins in the Turkey Spur area you will need to walk to the Welcome Center to get a shuttle to Mountaintop. Most cabins on Turkey Spur are only a short 5-minute walk to the Welcome Center.
Food for your Weekend
We have some great food options for you this weekend. Visit one of the many food vendors inside the Main Stage area. There are also food vendors in the campground on H Lane. ACE’s bar/restaurant, The Lost Paddle, is located next to the waterpark and has a full menu including a breakfast buffet, dinner buffet and full bar. Check out The Lost Paddle on Friday and Saturday afternoon for music on The Lake Stage.
