Where is the entrance?

The northern driveway (closest to Flamingo Rd) will be the main entry point for all guests and ticketholders.  Grandstand access will be on the hotel side, of the driveway.  Beer Garden access will be through the casino and at the main entrance of The Front Yard.

What can I do to avoid road closures?

Access to Ellis Island will always be available by heading westbound on Flaming Rd (from Paradise). Road closures start each race day at 5:00pm.  Before 5:00pm, access to Ellis Island will be available both eastbound and westbound on Flamingo Rd. Expect delays if arriving after 5:00pm.  See “Traffic Flow” map below for more details.

How can I get there?

Due to road closures, we strongly recommend walking to Ellis Island.   Parking will be very limited. We strongly encourage guests to arrive before the 5:00pm road closures if they are arriving by car. Formula 1 is providing a hotel shuttle for guests staying within the track zone.  This shuttle can be found at 3987 Paradise Road Las Vegas NV 89119. This service will only be available during the "hot track" times (roughly 5:00pm-2:00am).

Can you walk from other places on the strip or elsewhere instead of coming by car?

Yes, there is a pedestrian bridge at Koval and Flamingo which grants access at all times. All pedestrian traffic must come from the intersection of Koval and Flamingo. Patrons can access the monorail to travel the length of the strip.  Horseshoe (formerly Bally’s) is the closest monorail stop and is about a 15-20 minute walk from the property. See "Traffic Flow" map below for details.

What times will the experiences be open for ticket holders?

The doors open for both experiences at 6:00pm each day.  Check-in lines start at 5:00pm and you may also pre-check-in as early as 3:00pm at The Front Yard (for both ticket types).

Can I come earlier in the day before the doors open?

Yes, the casino and hotel will be open 24/7, and ticket holders can enjoy any of the other amenities and venues on property.

Can I access the hotel?

Registered hotel guests will have access to the hotel.  There will be entry checkpoints inside the hotel lobby for grandstand ticketed hotel guests to access the grandstands directly from the hotel. If you have a ticket to the Beer Garden at The Front Yard, access to the hotel will be available from surrounding doors outside of the Grandstand Zone.

How will Parking work?

There is limited on-site parking available.  Hotel guests are guaranteed one parking spot, and anything else is first come first served.

Where is the designated parking area for hotel guests?
