- Hall of Bobbleheads – During any game, fans are invited to visit the new Hall of Bobbleheads and celebrate the Giants’ great bobblehead history. In 1999, the Giants became the first team to offer a bobblehead as a gate giveaway item. Fans now have the opportunity to create their very own virtual bobblehead, which will be emailed directly to them as well as displayed inside the Hall of Bobbleheads on the Virtual Gallery, a state-of-the-art 12 foot by 4 foot video wall. The Hall of Bobbleheads is located in centerfield at the Peet’s @Cafe at Oracle Park.
- Apollo at the Park – In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing, the Giants, in partnership with the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum, are showcasing a statue re-creation of Neil Armstrong’s Apollo 11 spacesuit. The statue has been created using the Smithsonian’s 3-D scan of the spacesuit and has been hand painted. Fans can use their smartphone cameras to scan parts of the suit, including the Apollo 11 patch, NASA logo, American Flag and glove patch, to access videos and information about the Apollo 11 mission,
astronauts and the anniversary. The statue is accessible during any Giants game and is located on the Promenade Level, next to the World Series Trophy case.
- Waterfront Bar – Set to open after the All-Star Game break, this new social gathering spot, ideal for Ballpark Pass holders, will be located directly below the scoreboard just above the bleachers in centerfield.
