Does anyone know if there will be public entrances open from the street to Lucas Oil Stadium this year? I saw in another post that last year access to LOS events were through the tunnel connector only.

The map shows street entrances to the stadium....

Yes; you can either take the pedestrian corridor, which is how you would have gone last year to get to the anime area or True Dungeon, or, you can use the "North Gate" entrance, to enter from the outside.

Marimac, it looks like you'd then walk down through the first section of stadium seating to get to the playing surface.  Will those seats be open for attendees to use?

Awesome!  That's really good news, especially for those of us staying over on that side (hotel wise).

Along the same line, will the stadium parking lot be available to use?  And any idea on the daily rate?

Stadium parking?  I know Gate 10 has a lot of spots; not sure if they are at full capacity though.

The last I heard was that there would probably be SOME stadium seating open, but I can't 100 percent verify that at this point, nor what section that would be. That's a matter for ops and security.

Also, do you know if badges will be checked at the North ENtrance?  Seems like they would be...

That makes me wonder.  Are there tubes connecting the Staybridge inns to the con center (or lucas oil??

Nope.

I was just told yesterday that there should be some food trucks outside LOS, at least from 11am to 4pm, so..........check into that. :)

That's great news.  Thanks marimac.

With Nascrag in the LOS, me in the Crowne Plaza, and food in-between, I may not need to wander outside a 3 block area.

Ops guy here. :-) I was told that there should be a couple concession stands open inside that north entrance too. As you mentioned, the plan (which may change) is to have a few sections of seating open near there (probably the North End Zone seats) but everything else will be roped off with security.

There will be no access to the stadium on Wednesday for anyone, except those people who have asked for and were given special permission for set up access in that area on Wednesday.

That's fantastic; might be a smaller line if there are a few tucked away over there! Any idea on which entrance/street?
