One thing I would love to see at Bryant Denny would be escalators similar to the ones they had down at Sun Life Stadium in Miami. I was able to get to and from the upper deck very quickly. I am not sure how much these would cost to install or even if there would be room to install them but I do think something like this would be a nice addition to BDS. Thoughts?
The other question I would have is how would our weather effect those here? South Florida....certainly doesn't have to deal with the levels of rain water, the months of cold, as well as the intense heat. Can't imagine an escalator would do well outdoors here? But maybe there is some type for all weather???
Very cool idea. I've seen them at Baseball stadiums out west for upper levels. Usually one centrally located but still, an easy way up and down. But again, that's socal weather.
I suppose there is room on the North endzone side, when I win the lottery I'll run it by Mal.

I've always wondered why there wasn't some sort of elevator system on the inside of the ramps... I'll be sure to bring that up too, lol
Have you seen the outdoor escalators in Vegas? They sure didn't hold up to the weather and are always broke. Of course they get a heavier party crowd and a lot more traffic. If they aren't going to be taken care of better, I'd rather do without.

Choose not a life of limitation
There are elevators. Just not highly publicized.
Don't think they mean for the Skyboxes bro.
Don't know if possible.....but lower field and do away with walk space. Between field and stands........turning walk space area into seating closer to the field. Lowering field and putting seats close to sidelines like at the swamp.... Would increase crowd noise and make stadium tougher place to play
There are elevators to other places as well, but you need to be disabled to use them.
Those escalators were pimp. But as far as aesthetics go...
Sun life is in the middle of nowhere. A sea of parking pavement/parking grass. BDS is on campus. Maybe we can throw some escalators in there, but not the type Sun Life had. They protruded off of the thing like a gross spider leg. We do need to throw some make-up on the East and West facades.
