Standard concert arena. We were gifted floor seats but honestly, something in the stands would have been better as they are staggered.

I went there last Saturday for the UCLA Standford football game at 5pm. I decided to park at Parsons and take a shuttle to the stadium. We got to the parking lot at 3pm. There were signs on the street to take you to entrance and attendants showing you where to park. I prepaid online. Otherwise, it's $15 Cash Only.... More

We were on vacation from Ireland, spending 3 weeks travelling around CA. As massive fans of Coldplay, I booked these tickets well in advance. However, reading trip advisor reviews of previous concerts here (mainly Beyonce earlier in the summer) I started to get downhearted at the anticipate hassle of seeing this great band at the Rose Bowl. Stories of strict... More

I visited the fleamarket in April 2016. We arrived at 6:45 a.m. and waited until the 7 am admission time. The admission cost decreases the later that you wait to enter. We parked on the street and walked across the grassy area. There was closer parking but since we arrived so early, it killed time and there was no parking... More

This was my first time visiting the Rose Bowl and it truly is a great stadium! The food is awesome and bathrooms are clean, staff is also friendly. However, parking is was horrible. Apart from buying tickets for whatever event you are attending there, you have to pay parking($25) and the parking is far. If you do not get there... More

Great stadium but the least knowledgeable event staff I've ever encountered! We left a UCLA game at the start of the 4th quarter and asked no less than 10 people working the event where we could catch an Uber ride and the first 9 had no clue and the 10th sent us on a half mile walk in the completely...

When I lived in Pasadena, I loved coming to run at the Rose Bowl, lots of people there, especially on the weekends. If you go all the way around it's a little more than 3 miles and there is usually always free parking unless there is an event. There is a separate path for joggers and dog walkers. You can... More

#1 tip- if you are in no rush and don't mind waiting to leave, then you can drive but arrive hours before the event to prepare for traffic and road closures. Parking is still at $20 so if you see signs for parking before you hit gridlock, do it. You will walk anyway. Even uber/ and taxis were stuck in... More

Everything about this venue ws amazing, with the exception of transportation - and ESPECIALLY after the concert. There were a lot of security personnel there, and everyone must go through a metal detector, which made me feel safe. The acoustics were amazing. There really aren't 'bad seats' in my opinion. There are plenty of refreshments. Be aware of the strict... More

Traffic getting in was terrible...Terrible! We left or hotel 1 mile away at 7pm, by 7:45 we only went a block so I got out of the car and walked. I get to the gate and there's a huge crowd, no lines, people pushing to get in. Took about 30 minutes through a bunch of crowds to get in. As... More
