I'll echo what others have said and say I rarely if ever come here.  The slightly out of the way doesn't do it any favors.  It's a cool concept in theory, but in practice, I don't know if they make people think it's a worthwhile jaunt over the bridge. If they could convince some of the other outdoor areas that are closer to the convention to set up shop there (say the FX outdoor areas like in years past or the Dragonball Z tour), they could get a lot more foot traffic to head over there.

Every time I’ve ventured over there, there’s been tons of people. There’s no want for crowds.

yeah the area doesn't require a badge so it gets plenty of foot traffic

Wait really no badge?! Was it always that way? I must have imagined it was badge required for some reason. Sorry for spreading misinformation.

Really? I go there all the time if only for the food trucks or on the way to Lolita’s Mexican. It’s not out of the way imo. You can take the pedestrian bridge. I used to get off the trolley over there though. It’s mostly packed with non-badge holders at times though. You’d have to pay to rent out the parking lots or open spaces in other areas. This is one big area produced by one company.

I've gone twice in past years and had a good time, some photos, nice activations and good food trucks!

I go there more than the FX outdoor area.  But I do the offsites so the Petco Parking Lot is something I come across more than the convention center lawn.  I think that is the major difference.  For some people, the offsites might as well not exist so for them, it's out of the way.  For people that do offsites, it's right in the mix.

Last year they upped the game and had live music during the day and night time movies on the big screen.  They want to make it more than a place to hit a food truck or do one of the small offsites there.  They want to make it a place to hang out.  They had plenty of lawn furniture around to sit on.

They definitely did a better job last year but if they really want people to hang out there during the day, then they have to provide even more places with shade!

Did anyone else go check out the life size Gundam they had in Tokyo?  What impressed me was not just the size, it was the level of detail.  Even put on my reading glasses close, they fully realized it.
