ACCESSIBILITY

Insomniac welcomes all, and we strive to make our environment accessible to our guests with disabilities. During the festival, the venue will feature accessible parking, restrooms and other amenities, as well as designated areas for wheelchair users and their companions.

TRANSIT

The LIRR’s Mets-Willets Point Station is not ADA accessible. However, the subway’s Flushing Line Mets-Willets Point Station is accessible via the Queens-bound local platform. LIRR Customers with mobility impairments should travel to Woodside Station. At Woodside Station, customers can use elevators to transfer to a Flushing-bound #7 subway train to the Mets-Willets Point subway.

To return to Woodside after the show, customers with mobility impairments should board the #7 subway and travel one stop east to its end point, the Flushing-Main Street Station. After a brief wait on the train, the train will head west to Woodside. This is necessary due to the location of the ramp, which only permits access to the eastbound platform.

For additional information, call 511 and say “LIRR.”
