I am planning a trip to ABQ from Oct 10-13, however my flight lands on Oct 10 at 4:35pm. I will have only carryon luggage and will walk quickly to the car rental place (where I can bypass the line only because I have signed up for their express membership). HaHa! Trying my best to make this work :)
That evening is the Special Shapes GlowDeo at 5:45 p.m. Based on what I have read about parking, crowds, and traffic, I'm thinking that I definitely won't make it in time for the GlowDeo if I self park. Do you think I could still make it if I take a Park and Ride Shuttle?
The website says that the last Park and Ride shuttle leaves at 6:30p.m. What Park and Ride location would you recommend if we are coming straight from the airport? If we can get one of the last shuttles, maybe we can still make it? Based on what I have read, the Coronado Mall Park and Ride is a very popular location. So, I was thinking perhaps the Unser Crossing location might be less crowded and increase our chances of getting onto a shuttle? I see from Google maps that I can leave the airport and take Bridge Boulevard to cut over to Unser Crossing. What do you guys think?
If this sounds impossible, is there an elevated location outside the park where we might be able to see some of the GlowDeo? I'm just hoping to see some of the special shapes balloons, even if from afar.
We are planning on being up early the following morning (the 11th of Oct) for the morning ascension. If we miss the special shapes GlowDeo on the 10th, we will see the regular Night Magic Glow on the 11th.
Thank you in advance for any tips or help!
