CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The Cincinnati Reds showed up some of the newest additions at Great American Ball Park Friday in a special sneak preview.

Of the additions, the Fioptics District highlights one of the more impressive improvements at GABP.

This new entertainment destination located in the left field corner of the View Level includes the GigaBar and Rooftop.

A Fioptics District Ticket gives fans general admission access into sections 408-410, with both traditional ballpark seats as well as standing drink rails.

While the ticket includes the first drink, District ticket holders can enjoy a spacious, rooftop patio that is located on top of the GigaBar. The District Rooftop features lounge furniture, a 15-foot video board and panoramic views of downtown, as well as a ping pong table and corn hole boards.

Reds COO Phil Castellini told media Friday that the District area was his new favorite place of the ballpark.  He said the District is meant for millennials who want to socialize and relax during the game.

The Reds have made an improvement to their new All-You-Can-Eat stand. The stand is located on the View Level down the first-base line behind section 530.

For $20 per person, fans can enjoy unlimited hot dogs, sodas, popcorn, peanuts and chips.

The All-You-Can-Eat pass can be purchased in advance or at the game and can be added to any game ticket.

Kids can enjoy a variety of new carnival themed games in the Fan Zone.

Games for kids include: Rosie's Ring Toss, Gapper's Hit-the-Mitt, Mr. Redlegs' Strike Zone and Mr. Red's Bottle Break-Up; Kids games are $2 per play to win Reds-themed prizes. Fans of all ages can also test their basketball shooting skills at the Throw Challenge, for $5 per play with 4 out of 5 baskets winning a custom Reds basketball or other prizes.

Arcade games have been added to the Machine Room Grille.  Over a dozen of video and redemption arcade games from Scene75 Entertainment Center have been added to The Machine Room Grille located in the left field corner. Fans can load a game card to win e-tickets that can be redeemed for prizes at the redemption counter.

The Reds say they've also added upgrades to the Triple Play Suites located down the left field line and have added additional charging stations and power outlets for fans who need a little juice for their electronic portable device.
