I haven't posted in a long while...

I understand a simple cage, simple is easy to work with, but you have a vast amount of space to take advantage of here.

Hide spots are essential, and you are only offering one, with a scary feeling top opening. You could easily offer more hides, at various temps, as well as more secure hides (secure for the lizard).

Even if you stayed super simple, and spread a bunch of cork bark flats (big wide ones) across all that empty space, you would have dozens of more hide areas (shimmying under the cork, a perfect hidespot) and you could effectively double your usable footprint. You would have run around area on top of the cork, as well as run around (and hidespot) area UNDER the cork.

I think it would be vastly more stimulating both mentally and physically for your lizard.

You could use cork, you could use thin wood paneling, even flat sheets of newspaper, lots of simple choices.
