Parking can be purchased ahead of time in specific lots with the Founders lots closest to the arena.

 

Like a tailgate party? Better plan ahead, there are designated first come, first served tailgating spaces which are on the perimeter of specific lots. Only these spaces may be used for tailgate parties. There are shuttles for the disabled and one companion from disability parking and there are designated drop off areas. Based on your ticket purchase there are fabulous lounges throughout for use by ticket holders. Concession stands take credit cards as well as cash with strict limits on alcohol sales and there is even a Designated Drivers Program in place. Designated drivers receive a wrist band and a free bottled water upon registering at Guest Services Centers. Tours during off times are available for $12-$15 per person and include the pro shop, a suite, scoreboard control room, locker room, press box and player interview room. The stadium has been and will be used by college teams, soccer teams and anyone who chooses to rent the venue. Beginning in 2010, The Professional Bull Riders, Inc. (PBR) will stampede into the Cowboys Stadium in the Built Ford Tough Series (BFTS) tour. Yee Haw!

 

Minute Maid Park the home to the Houston Astros and opened in 2000. Minute Maid has had their headquarters in Houston since 1967 and in 2002 entered into a 28-year partnership with the Astros. Since Minute Maid is owned by The Coca Cola Company they have exclusive beverage rights at the park. Their stadium with that ‘old time’ feel and current technology makes this a park fans like to patronize. The fully retractable roof makes it possible to have a grass field and the view of sunny skies is welcome on game day. Should the weather be unsuitable then the roof stays closed, so no rain outs. Awesome! Houston was built by the railroads and the original Union Station acts as the lobby of the ball field. It is also the site of The Shed (official team store), a café and the place where the guided tours begin. Upper floors hold meeting rooms, Houston Astros executive offices and the sixth floor is the Roof Deck and Clubhouse where groups of up to 100 can enjoy the game. Ticket prices range from $1 for children and $7 for adults on the Outfield deck to $50 in the Dugout Boxes and $52 in Club I on the second level. Check out downtown garages and parking lots for those who offer shuttles to the park. Some restaurants offer free shuttles if you eat at their establishment before the game. How about trying out the light rail system? You can also catch a meal at the centerfield restaurant known as the Five Seven Grille or shoot a game of pool in the upstairs loft. There is vast variety of concessions to handle whatever your little heart desires to make the game more fun. On sunny days be sure you are well protected with your Coppertone® or Aveeno®
