The Walter Pyramid is a 4,000-seat, indoor multipurpose arena on the campus of Long Beach State University. The Long Beach, Calif., venue opened in 1994 and is one of only a few truly pyramid-shaped buildings in the United States. The shape of the venue allows it to rise 18 stories above Long Beach, with impressive views of the skyline. The exterior of the building is covered with corrugated aluminum. The arena is used by the men's and women's Long Beach 49ers basketball teams as well as the school's volleyball team. The venue has also hosted the Harlem Globetrotters and commencement ceremonies.

Is there anything I can't bring into the Pyramid?
The Walter Pyramid has a clear-bag policy like that of NFL stadiums and most other NCAA institutions. Clear bags can be purchased before or at the game. It's important to use common sense when packing the clear bag to make sure it doesn't include any items that are not allowed, such as outside food and drinks, alcohol, smoking materials (including vapes), professional cameras or those with flashes and selfie sticks. You can find a complete list of prohibited items on the venue's website.
