I was only able to see the pyramid driving by on 2 days. This is a nice piece of architecture on a campus that was built with bland, boring 60s - 80s spartan type design. Depending on the day and the lighting, the blue takes on a different shade.

Spent two full days here. Place was pretty packed and lots going on. The venue itself was large and easily accommodated the 2800 competitors and families and friends. The food was is pretty bad, and just one concession open. The restrooms are awful, getting more disgusting as the day went on. They definitely need to improve their services on this... More

We only drove by to see this amazing site. Would love to return and see the inside. Easy to find just across the parking lot from where we parked to see the Japanese Gardens.

The pyramid is a super unique structure that is awesome to look at up close. It is home to lots of sporting events, and the way the stands are setup is awesome. If you have a sporting event to go to there, be excited it is a great spot.

The parking can be tricky, because it is on a college campus, but this is a great venue. I come here to see CSULB basketball. The seats are all good, concessions reasonable.
