“Park is great, team not so much”
Reviewed 3 April 2012

The Astros do a great job presenting a fan-friendly experience. Very clean, comfortable, and easy to get around. Kids play area is great pre-game. Food is good quality and not as expensive as movie theaters. The team was/is awful, so go for the park experience.

“A great night out for $10”
Reviewed 29 March 2012

When I work in Houston, I always go and see the sports - either basketball, ice hockey, or baseball. An evening watching the Astros at Minute Maid Park is always a lot of fun, and excellent value with tickets from around ten bucks.

The players will often sign bats and balls if you go in early. Head for the area near the benches. I had a baseball signed, it is one of my prized possessions.

Generally no need to book - I bought my ticket from a seller in the street (think he was official), and he told me exactly what to do, where to sit, and a few other good ideas.

There are a few gift / fan apparel shops in the ground, and there are 00's of souvenirs.

Highly recommended.

“BEAUTIFUL AND CLOSE TO DOWNTOWN”
Reviewed 28 March 2012

I cannot say much about the Astros or whatever they will be called now. Nonethless, this place is great for family. Please bring a lot of money. This place is not cheap.

“Just a great ballpark, all around.”
Reviewed 27 March 2012

This Park is very comfortable and the ambience is unique. It has that old ballpark feel, with all the new ballpark comforts. The fact that the roof closes on those hot, humid summer nights is a dream come true and really makes watching the game enjoyable.

Lots of variety in the concessions and no bad seats either. It's also a fun place to walk around and enjoy the old railroad station that it's built from if you happen to arrive real early.
