WHERE TO EAT

Hullabaloo on Scope Plaza
Thursday-Saturday 4:30 – 7:30 PM
Sunday 11:30 AM- 2:30 PM

There is something for everyone, from pizza to pretzels, from hotdogs to gyros, from smoothies to craft beer. And Scottish food too! Enjoy your meal in a festive atmosphere. There are plenty of seats and tables around the plaza. Average Price: $8 -$15 per person

WHERE TO SIT AT THE TATTOO

Upper 200 Level
Scope Arena is BIG, but the higher up (upper 200 level seats) are the most affordable ($20, discounted to $10 for students under the age of 25), and these seats give you the best birds-eye view of the show floor, the stage, and the Tattoo performers comings-and-goings.  A family of 4 with two students would only pay $60.00; it’s less expensive than a movie!
