There is also a viewing platform at the venue. To book a space on the platform, the visitor must complete the “Disabled Viewing Platform” section in the Accessible Request form. The disabled person can take an essential companion with them onto the platform, but no more than 2 people from each party can use the viewing platform at the same time.
