Another exciting addition to the ballpark includes a sensory room on the fifth floor.

The space features fun items and activities to stimulate or relax the senses. The calming space also includes activity panels, Yogibo bean bags and a 100 percent recycled acoustic carpet. Guests who want to access this room can head to any guest services booth to sign in.
