Yesterday, a few of us from Discover Lehigh Valley stopped by Coca-Cola Park for a preview of the progress on the brand new Red Robin Tiki Terrace and Oasis, the latest addition to the home of the Lehigh Valley IronPigs. The new tropical-themed seating and concession area will feature 48 seats (4 rows of 12) reserved for group seating. You can view the photos below in the gallery.
The most interesting part of the new construction is that the first row of the Tiki Terrace actually hangs over the wall in left field, a feature that is uncommon in any ball park, especially in the minor leagues. The Tiki Terrace will be reserved for groups that range between 48-64 people, offering full bar service and a tropical themed menu that includes Pineapple Pork Skewers and Kahlua Chicken Skewers.
The Oasis section will be available to smaller groups, featuring “islands” of four seats that are available for $60 each. Spectators in these seats will enjoy wait service and some of the same tropical fare offered in the Tiki Terrace. These seats are currently only being sold in the 9-game mini plans.
But wait, there’s more! There’s even something for those of us that don’t have a group of that size to go with: The Oasis will also have a 300 sq. foot bar and 5,000 sq. feet of covered tables and drink stands, offering some shade from that relentless summer sun. And for those of you that don’t enjoy drinking beer, the Oasis has something for you too. They will be serving specialty island-themed frozen drinks that were previously unavailable in the stadium.
In all, the new addition to Coca-Cola Park will add 100 seats to the capacity of the stadium. Kurt Landes, the general manager, pointed out the rarity of an investment like this in such a new stadium. I guess having the highest per-game average attendance in all of Minor League Baseball for the last two years has helped a bit!
Did you get your tickets for the upcoming season yet?
