Outfield Extravaganza – Located beyond the Center Field wall, it was created to be the signature piece of Angel Stadium of Anaheim. The Outfield Extravaganza area was built to model the rocky California coastline and comes to life with a 90-foot high geyser, fireworks and pyrotechnics to celebrate great plays or special moments on the field. This area is designed to be viewed, not explored; any fan attempting to climb or enter this area will be subject to ejection from the ballpark.

The bottle itself, located 465 feet from home plate, contains viewing platforms and four slides, two 56-foot-long curving slides (the “Guzzler”) and two 20-foot-long twisting slides (the “Twist-Off”). There is also a “Little Giants Park”, a 50-by-50-foot replica of AT&T Park designed for children. Includes infield, bases, outfield and ballpark iconography.
