This 70,000+ square-foot, state-of-the-art indoor facility is one of the most comprehensive sports venues to be seen in decades. The HP Field House features unprecedented flexibility, modern playing surfaces, custom athlete training areas, and unique design and construction. The cozy arena has an open yet intimate feel. Of the 5,000 seats, the highest row is only 35 feet off the ground, providing up-close viewing of all the action.
The HP Field House, formerly known as the Milk House, has been a cornerstone of Wide World of Sports since its opening in 1997, and is a multi-purpose facility that can accommodate nearly any indoor sport. It has been upgraded with numerous HP enhancements, including touch-screen kiosks and a unique retail imaging area.
HP technology will allow fans and athletes to have a “hands on” sports experience throughout the 230-acre complex, including an internet-cafe experience at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Grill and the HP Photo Creation Center, where guests can download, design, and enhance photos and images from events, and can also print them out at an onsite retail location.
An upcoming feature that is currently in development at the sports complex is the use of handheld computers, which will allow guests and athletes the opportunity to collect on-field stats, as well as provide hospitality services and interactive park experiences. In addition, HP signage will also be added to the concession area throughout the venue.
