Had these seats last July during the two game series vs. the Texas Rangers. It was a pretty dead section, I think only something like 15,000 showed up to the park that night. But the fans are what makes this place come alive!
The second level is great, no matter which seat you have. I love how the 200s overlook the field; 205 overlooked the Rangers bullpen along third base. However, when you go to the concessions or restrooms, it can get pretty eerie with you being the only fan walking thru the concourse. That's what happens when a small market team players in a massive venue like Coliseum. If you get worried about finding your seats, just enter thru Gate C next to the A's team shop and then take the ramp up to the second level. The third level is blocked off for A's games although they may take the tarps off for playoff games.

This place only seems like a dump because all of the other franchises have upgraded to their own stadiums. Back when the Pirates played at 3 Rivers, the Reds played at Cinergy Field and the Giants played at Candlestick, The Coliseum was considered much better than those venues. It's still a great place to watch a baseball game, any day of the week.

To give you an idea what the view of the field is like from section 205, here is a Youtube video shot from there following an A's/Detroit Tigers game at Coliseum.
