Minute Maid Park Reviews
- “After seeing 28 of the baseball parks, this isn’t bad. Its just not unique,, in the big picture. It is user friendly, nicely located and fun to visit. Food is not very creative, and of course very expensive.”
- “We are visiting every baseball park. This one is a great one. Very intimate feeling. Reasonable priced seats had great views. Food and beverages like all parks are expensive, nothing unique here. Beautiful views.”
- “One of my favorite places on earth. I’ve brought my kids once before and that was miserable. But when it’s just me and my husband, I am happy to stay the whole 9 innings. The last game I went to we were sandwiched between 8 people on either side of us, just one row below the nosebleed seats (although, I don’t think there’s a bad seat in the park), we spent $35 on mediocre food and $10 on a large fountain drink with free refills (we got 5 refills/our money’s worth). The game was slow and the Astros lost, but we had such a great time. I love the ambience/energy.
- “My husband is a huge Astros fan and thought this would be a fun thing to do before Father’s Day weekend. I would recommend doing the All star tour which gives you access to the dugout, media press boxes, team Clubhouse and suite VIP boxes section. The tour guides aren’t great but do provide some neat information about ballpark. They are very pushy though about moving along and didn’t provide sufficient time for photos or offer to take photos for group. With everything being very expensive, we thought this was reasonably priced ($25) per person considering the amount of things we got to see.”
