Your group ticket time represents when your group will begin to enter the amphitheater, not the time you will enter the trail. From the entrance of the Amphitheater to the head of the trail is approximately a 45 minute wait.  If you have any questions about how long the wait is, or the status of the lines, please ask at Guest Services, on the ticket plaza. Our hard working team parking cars, will not know the status at the front gate.  Please plan to be in line at least 15 minutes before the beginning of your group time, allowing approximately 30 minutes to park for the later groups.  Pay close attention to social media for updates on the nights you attend.  Even if you plan to purchase your tickets at the venue, check repeatedly to monitor sold out status of group times.  If you are purchasing your tickets on site, check, find the gathering area for the group time you wish to purchase that is still available, and save your spot in line, with only one person going to the ticket plaza to purchase the tickets.
