We went here or the Special Olympics opening ceremony and it seemed close to capacity. The seats were normal stadium seating and the view of the stage at one end good. Facilities such as bathrooms, concessions etc were all normal and as expected. I gave it a very good for its ability to handle a very large crowd but it... More

What a nightmare. USC, which now owns the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, was responsible for Event Operations. Not only were there not enough gates open, not only were there not enough Security Staff checking bags and running people through metal detectors, the Security Staff did not check the bags! That's right, I could have had a gun or explosives in... More

I flew in the LA on a Friday and on the Saturday was USC homecoming. Huge crowd and nice old historical stadium. People were friendly and helpful . Found our seat easy and had a great view. This is a must do it when in LA. It's in a "Dodgey" Area but I saw no sign of it being dangerous... More

I did not realize how close the Coliseum was to the Science Center (one long block away). The gates were closed, as there was no event scheduled. I remember the Oakland Raiders moving to LA and playing football here for twelve years. And in 1984, the Summer Olympics were held here. So many glorious memories here and many more to... More

Spent some of my childhood going to Raiders games at the Coliseum and was happy to take my family to see Ecuador play Mexico in a friendly soccer game. If you're planning on seeing a sold out game at the Coliseum you must prepare for a parking nightmare. My strategy worked out perfect and I highly recommend it to anyone... More

No sense where the line started or ended, no one to advise you were to enter or line out. To make the story short I enter the place without been pad down... More

We visited outside of a scheduled event just to have a quick look around on our way past and discovered that there are $10 per person tours available which are well worth the money! Sherrie and Bob the tour guides were fantastic, providing a wealth of fascinating historical facts and information which added so much to our visit here! Definitely... More

There are so many events that take place here. Some events are just for famous performers and we have to pay to go in and watch them. But some times we, the unknown have the chance to perform too. I have been here several times and not because i planned it. The first times I went, my school was invited... More
