LAFC Stadium Parking


SEGD Los Angeles,

Have you heard about the new "micro-amusement" park in town? 

Two Bit Circus is a 38,000 square feet wharehouse located in the Downtown LA Arts Disctrict and it is loaded with interactive and VR experiences along with classic gaming. Our group has been given a unique opportunity to receive a tour of the arena with the creative director from Two Bit Circus! During the tour we will hear about the design process involved in creating all the graphics and signage, what it took to get the place up and running, and some insight on the technology being used. 

Each ticket comes with a $10 preloaded gaming card so you can try out some of the experiences after the tour! Unfortunately, due to all the noise and foot traffic that will be going on during operating hours, the tour size will be small and there are a very limited amount of tickets available! Get your ticket asap.

Didn't get a ticket in time? You can still show up to the venue to check out the arena, play some games, have some food or drinks and meet up with your friends when their tour concludes. 

RSVP: https://segdla-twobitcircustour.eventbrite.com


Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?
There is no age limit.

Where do I park?
There is limited parking in the lot, two nearby public parking structures and plenty of street parking along Mateo. The nearest public parking structure is at 1256 Palmetto Street in the At Mateo Center

What is the refund policy?
There are no refunds.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
Either printed or digital.
