Denver >Coors Field
Scalped. We recently attended a Rockies game to watch Jimenez pitch. We paid for 3 tickets, parking in lot A, and some refreshments, totaling about $111. The game was delayed due to potential weather (?) for an hour and a half. It was unusually cold for mid-June and we were miserable just sitting there. After the delay, the crowd was told to go onto the concourse due to threatening weather. (half of the game could have been played by then). We stood for an hour near a stairwell, still cold and now wet. It was now nearly hours since the scheduled game start time so we left seeing no likelihood of a game in a flooded field and nearly 9 pm. Half way home to Parker, we heard on the radio that the game was being played. Too late to return now. The game was interrupted and finally called after 6 innings. So, for over $100 and hours of misery, we saw no game at all and felt cheated by corporate greed. We are newly moved to the area (from Virginia) and trying to get involved in local sports. This was not a good initial experience. The game should not have been played or at least refunds or replacement tickets should have been offered.
Perfect Ballpark for Young Families. With 3 kids under 10, few would venture to an MLB game, but Coors Field makes it easy for us. There is plenty of parking in the main lot, private lots and on the street within just 5 blocks in any direction. As another reviewer pointed out, Denver's light rail means not having to park dowtown at all if you'd rather not. The streets outside the stadium are pedestrian-only during games, so there's plenty of walking space. Same goes for the concourse inside - nice and wide for less congestion with an enormous souvenir store on the first base side of the main level. Going in they only check you for weapons and glass bottles; Coors is one of the few venues where you can bring in your own food and drink. (The concessions are the high ballpark prices you 'd expect.) There's not a bad seat in the place, and there are plenty of escalators and elevators if your seats are higher up. If you do find yourself on the third level, your view of the city or mountains is phenomenal, and the Colorado sunset is second to none. When you go, check out the single row of purple seats exactly one mile above sea level. For the kids there is a playground out past left field and there are both batting and pitching cages in center. There are plenty of places to explore in case of rain or kids who need to get up and move around. (Rockies games are rarely rained out.) Coors Field is the best - Go Rockies!
Fans ruin atmosphere. Coors is a great park, however, the fans sit on their hands and are there to be seen... Bottom of the eighth, down by a run, two on, one out...why must the scoreboard operator tell the fans to clap? Then, when the sign on the scoreboard is off, it is once again silent! The fan excitement of the mid and late 90's, when the Rockies were new, has sadly disappeared...Baseball park atmosphere is all about the fans and this Coors is flat.
Fantastic views. Great views of the Rocikes -- the mountains and the team. Not a bad seat in the place. But I wasn't happy with the concessions. You'd think a place called Coors Field would have really cold beer, but mine was lukewarm.
The Colorado Rockies' home ballpark boasts classic style, great views and a variety of amenities..
Though this ballpark opened in 1995, the atmosphere hearkens back to an earlier era. Instead of neon signs, the stadium features a traditional brick facade, classic layout and majestic views of the Rockies and Denver. Amenities include the famous Rockpile (low-cost center-field bleachers) and the club-level section, where fans sit in wider seats and recieve individual attention from servers. And fans always have plenty of company; attendance is among the highest in Major League Baseball.
Nothing beats Rockies baseball at Coors field!!!. Where else can you get tickets, parking, and peanuts for a family of 4 for $20? Not to mention great atmosphere and great baseball.
Great place to watch baseball at a low low price..
I am a Senior (over 55) and am able to get a Centerfield
A Centerfield Bleacher seat (Rockpile) for $1.00.
Also, you can get a free pop if you sign up at the
designated driver booth once a day.
To sum it up for $1.00 (Senior) $4.00 (Adults) you can see
a live ballgame and a free pop, also.
Can't be beat, anywhere in the U.S.A.
Plus a gorgeous field to watch baseball.
I can buy tickets for the whole season at Coors Field
(80 games) for $80.00.
Great Stadium!. I enjoyed a game from about 20 rows back on the 1st base side. Wonderfull stadium with great views. Just wish the Rockies were a little better.
baseball and beer. Even though the team may not be too entertaining the stadium more than makes up for the lack of excitement on the field.
.....and apple pie!. It doesn't matter whose playing, whether it is raining or 100 degrees,...this is the best thing in life and we get to see it in Coors Field? It doesn't get much better than that!
