Let me say, the new entrance at Gate 5 is by far the fastest way to get out of the stadium I've ever experienced. Instead of back and forth down the ramp it was a quick shot down some stairs and you're on the ground level. It was a beautiful thing.

I don't quite understand what the renovation was. Did they just encapsulate the ramp with a different skin?

Well, that's a great thing to hear. The constant back and forth seemed pointless to me. I think I'll take a photo or two when I'm at my first game of the season on Friday.

Kind of. Aesthetically, taking away one ramp and adding the staircase and glass housing for the escalators is an upgrade. Plus there is an assumption that this entrance is the first phase to a larger development project in that area of the parking lot.

I am not sure. We went in through gate 3. The escalators were inside the new enclosure right next to the stairs though. It looked like a real quick shot from the parking lot. Hopefully they do this with the rest of them after the season.

Bad. The lines were long. They only have 4 to 5 turnstiles. They had like 10 before. It was opening day and they had to hand out the flags ect, so I will see next time.

There's going to be a restaurant, and I think they're moving the teamstore out there, right? Unless, they plan on doing this with all the entrances......
