Went for the Rose Bowl game and it was an epic experience. Full house for a great game. Stealth fly over was awesome as well as fireworks and confetti at the end. The stadium staff is extremely friendly and makes the experience even better.

This was a once in a lifetime experience. To experience the magic of the stadium and see our college football team play was memorable. I will say that access to food and restrooms was poor at best. I’m guessing that when this stadium was designed...More
