Site map

AfterBurn site map
The AfterBurn site map

When you arrive, be prepared to wait at the Gate until the Placement Team can take you to your camping location. The Info Booth, located in The Indaba (top left corner of the map), will have a Theme Camp map to help you find your friends.

Did we mention boots?

This entire site will be considered by most Floridians as “Primitive”. This means, for the most part, unimproved natural, beautiful habitat. Wear boots and socks and have a bug plan for sunset – fire pits, mosquito coils, essential oils, or Deet if you don’t want to get eaten. Ant bait is a good idea, too.

We’ve seen a variety of flora and fauna onsite, from bobcats to deer to alligators to gopher turtles to snakes to birds. The center of the field (marked) is a bird sanctuary. Please do not take vehicles through the sanctuary, including golf carts. The area is very rough. Pedestrian traffic only.

Bring boots, hard-soled shoes or hiking boots. If you decide not to wear them, great. 

How ’bout that? Did we mention boots?

What to expect at the Gate

Gate hours are:

  • Friday, November 10: 8 am to midnight.
  • Saturday, November 11: 8 am to 6 pm.
  • Sunday, November 12: No entry. You must be packing up by 4 pm, and off the property by 7 pm.

AfterBurn is a no-reentry event. If you leave, you will not be allowed to return.

You know the saying, “The party starts at Greeters?” Be prepared to wait in the gate/greeter area to be placed — someone from Placement will take you to where you need to go. This is for your safety, and the safety of other participants. 

Ticket exchange

Do you have an extra ticket? Things are hopping over on the Facebook ticket exchange page, and you can easily find a new home for your ticket. To join the Facebook page, visit this link. Remember, when you transfer a ticket, the name on your ticket must match your government-issued ID. To change the name on a ticket, phone Brown Paper Tickets at 800-838-3006.

Unsupervised children will be given espresso and a puppy

Sorry, no puppies at AfterBurn. That was just to get your attention.

Now that we have your attention, this one is serious: If you are planning to bring a child to AfterBurn, you must read the Minors policy on our website. The policy states that you must be prepared to supervise your child 100% of the time during the event: “All children must always be accompanied by a designated, responsible, sober adult.”

What should you do if find an unsupervised child? Get a Ranger.

Ice Sales

Ice will be available for purchase Friday afternoon, Saturday morning, and Saturday before dark. If there’s any left we’ll sell it Sunday. The cost is $3 a bag.

How ’bout that?
