If you're already visiting the CSU Long Beach campus it's worth checking out, otherwise there's not much to see. I wouldn't recommend going out of your way to see it. It looks cool from a distance when you see it on campus, but up close it's less attractive.

Only interesting to see if you are a sports fan and you have interest in attending the CSU Long Beach. Otherwise, there is no real reason to do a drive by. It is a really nice sports arena and interesting to see the architecture.

Something to please everyone. On... More

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
