The Phantom of the Hockey Arena

Lehigh Valley Phantoms at Hershey Bears
February 1, 2020 | Giant Center | Hershey, Pennsylvania
Bus Trip

All good things must inevitably come to an end. After ten trips in ten years to Giant Center, our unbeaten streak was ground to a halt under the weight of a 3-0 loss to the baby Flyers. Despite this we all had a fun time and enjoyed ourselves.

Trip Itinerary

The Caps Road Crew will be hitting the road by bus to the Giant Center to cheer on the Hershey Bears as they take on the Flyers’ AHL affiliate, the Lehigh Valley Phantoms.

The CRC has made arrangements for bus transportation and lower level group tickets. (A very limited number of tickets aside from those with bus transportation are available at this time.)

Current plans: We’ll have a pickup in northern Virginia at Springfield Metro station at 12:30pm and one in Maryland at the Shady Grove Metro station (off I-270 & ICC) at approximately 1:00pm. We should arrive in Hershey by 3:30pm for lunch at the Bear’s Den in the Hershey Lodge before heading over to the arena at 6pm to catch warmups before the 7pm drop of the puck. The CRC bus will be returning to the D.C. area as soon as possible following the game (expected arrival back at Shady Grove around midnight and Springfield Metro around 12:30am). Parking is available at both Metro stations and while the Metro will be open at the time for our departure, constantly changing WMATA schedules make their operation when we return questionable so plan accordingly. We are happy to assist with carpooling for those who need it.

All of our available spaces that include bus transportation will be $65 per person. No extra fees or money over the cost of the bus and game tickets will be charged. You may bring your own food and drink on the bus (coolers will be provided for your convenience). There is no smoking/vaping allowed on the bus and time constraints will most likely prevent us from making any stops on the way. The bus is equipped with a restroom, electric outlets, free WiFi, and video/TV units.

Please get your reservation in ASAP to guarantee your spot on the CRC bus! A reservation should be considered a firm commitment as it will be used to finalize others’ reservations. We will have space and tickets available for 55 people. To reserve your spot on the bus, or for more information, please e-mail (Please specify number of seats/tickets needed.) All inquiries are responded to in the order they are received.

All available spaces are currently claimed. New inquiries will be for the waitlist.
