“I remember when Comp Hill was where the party was. It was close to the highway and anyone could pull off the road and join a normal vehicle. I remember seeing about 50,000 people there, cars on fire, UTVs flipped… Nowadays they moved to Oldsmobile Hill, it’s two or three miles off the main road, and that’s for the best.”
I agree that the lack of burning cars was a comforting sight, but Oldsmobile Hill is still absolutely insane. There is a constant parade of off-road vehicles that roll past 9 p.m., and the party continues until near sunrise.
Lined up in flashing lights, all of the rigs are sporting a 12-foot safety whip that flips through the night sky like gigantic glow sticks. Watching them race up and down the 300-foot dunes is the kind of twinkling light you’d pay hundreds of dollars to experience elsewhere. Not to be missed.
The rest of the night is filled with fires, loud music, and even loud vehicles – and everyone can hang whatever they like. There is a noticeable law enforcement presence nowadays, but they are clearly here to prevent another Woodstock ’99 scenario, not searching people’s coolers.
Whether you’re hanging at the bottom of a hill to watch the show or taking your device up to the top for one last epic 360-degree view, it’s the fitting finale to a glitzy weekend. The RZR camp is clearly back in full force. If this year is any indication, it will only get better.
