I've seen many games here, be it UCLA, the Rose Bowl and a couple title games. The recent upgrades especially to the press box are beautiful. The setting is unreal. What a great place!

After attending the recent Rose Bowl game I have to give my complements to this facilities management and staff.. With the thousands of fans attending the ingress to the facility was professionally managed as was the game time and egress. We were a happy lot with the game result as well.

A bucket list trip and bowl game for me. The historic stadium, view, sunshine is superb. The narrow tunnels, hour wait in line to get in the stadium, entrance gates, restroom capacities, all need updating and streamlining. Come on, this is the Rose Bowl! There has to be a better way to get 100,000 people into this stadium! These issues... More

The venue itself is spacious which can accommodate many attendees. I hate hate hate the parking and the roads leading to and from the freeways. It takes so long to get out of the stadium. Plus, this is the home stadium for UCLA and I hate the Bruins!

There is not a bad seat in the house at this grand old stadium. It may lack some of the modern stadium amenities, but it is a great place to watch a football game. The bowl-shaped stadium provides spectators with unobstructed views of the game with mountains as a back drop.

We were visiting Pasadena for a wedding, and the groom arranged a tour of the stadium for the wedding party. Highlight of the entire experience was being able to walk out on the field. Very cool experience! Not all tours have the opportunity to walk on the field, but even if you don't, it's still worth the visit if you're... More

We had a great time at the Rose Bowl game 2016, though our team lost. It was a fabulous place to see a game and was thankfully located in a safe area of town and walking distance from residential neighborhoods and nice homes. There were ample restrooms for women and great food was sold outside before and during the game.... More

This stadium is in a nice location and it is a great walk through residential neighborhoods from the parade to the stadium. It is the most exciting bowl game period. The stadium itself is dated. The bench seats are terrible. The entrances are congested and cause large lines to form. But I don't think anyone was there to admire the... More

In 2016 we made a last minute decision to go to the Rose Bowl. I have always wanted to see the Parade and my family wanted to go for the Football. Clearly last minute means no hotels near Pasadena, but HEY that's OK! Here's a summary of how we made it work by staying in LA: 1. Flights: Fly into... More

Rose Bowl game 2016 was my first football game ever. Now I know that I started big. I'm a huge soccer fan and what I saw in this game I had never seen it in a soccer game before. Very different experience. Arrive early so you pass security before it get crowded. Also, if you don't got tickets in first... More
