I've been to 2 Atlanta United games and have entered and exited the stadium in about 5 minutes max every time.

The stadium is amazing, some people just love to moan.

I think the biggest problem is people dont know where to go yet if you are in sections 113-118 a lot of times you have to go in the direction of the crowds. If you are in the 300-200 area of 113-118 it is an even longer wait because you have to get down to the 100s to exit. During Atlanta United match with the 42,500 seating its managable, but that Orlando City match was nuts getting out.

The gap between gate 1 and 4 looks way too big by that drawing. Adding another gate--even if for exit only--on the southwest corner seems like a necessity. Or are they waiting for the bridge project to tie that whole are together?
Testa50 you may be onto something! No a lot of people are using the Vine City station to go in the Benz. many people get off at CNN Dome and exit on the Philips Arena site. The Dome side is closed off. Everyone has to walk through International Plaza or Olympic Park Dr to get to the Benz. They need to return that direct connection from CNN Dome to the Benz like they had for the Dome and maybe Vine City

I had no issues exiting as well, but that was without the upper decks open. I could imagine 30K+ more fans could make it more difficult.

That seems to be the most popular nickname but I've also heard some misguided people refer to it as "the new dome".
