“My children had sooooooooooo much fun! My son’s face was lit up every day at pick up. He was so excited and kept telling me that The Watersports Camp is ‘the BEST CAMP EVER!’ The counselors are patient and great with the kids. I’m impressed. My kids go to summer camps all summer and The Watersports Camp staff was the BEST by far! Excellent.”

5 Crazy Interesting Fun Random Facts
Viejas Arena Box Office

Viejas Arena Box Office

The Box Office building at Viejas Arena is not physically connected to the Arena. The building is offset from the main building by approximately 45 feet.

The term ‘Box Office’ is derived from when citizens in the 16th century would place 1 penny in a box as an admission fee to the theatre.

Between June and Rico, Viejas Arena Ticket Office Manager & Supervisor, they have over 50 years of ticketing experience in various Ticketmaster ticketing platforms.

Almost 100% of the students the Box Office has hired as freshmen remain in school for 4+ years, and also stay with us as student employees.

There are more exterior glass windows at the box office than the entire Arena. The Box Office has 11 windows. They all have speaker holes and pass through slots at the bottom to handle transactions. The Arena building has 8 windows total. There are 6 on the 2nd level that can be used for emergency ventilation and 2 for natural sunlight.

  5. Which three people (living or dead) you would like to have dinner with? And why?
    I would give anything to have dinner with my two grandparents, who past away this last year, and the person whom I will end up marrying someday. I was extremely close to both of them and they are the two people who I would want my future husband to meet.
  6. What city would you most like to visit or visit again?
    Any tropical beach location will do!
  7. What is your favorite ride at an amusement park?
    Radiator Springs Racers in Cars Land at Disney’s California Adventure Park. It feels like you're really in the movie!

    Sandcastle, because I hate being cold and love being tan.
  9. What is your favorite sports team or who is your favorite individual athlete?
    Jennie Finch is my favorite athlete. I grew up playing softball and she is definitely the most well-known professional softball player. I met her at a tournament when I was playing in Colorado one summer and got a picture with her and had her sign a softball for me. I also really admire her core values and how she stays true to them.
