“was not impressed with this new stadium”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

I dont know why they built this in the same spot of the old Orange Bowl, because it does not connect directly to any major highway or the MetroRail. you have to park in a garage or at someone's yard. They should have put this downtown near the Miami Arena. There are no nearby restaurants or bars. you just drive in and drive out of there. No feeling of a family baseball day. no tailgating parties. you feel like you are in their mousetrap to extract as much money from you - $8 beers, $8 hot dogs. The roof was closed so they had the A/C, which doesnt give the feeling of a baseball game either.

“Marlins Ball Park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

A very nice ball park! Great selection of food vendors including local specialties. Only problem is parking. Big garages, lots of cars and congestion. Easy to get lost.

“Just amazing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Woth the visit just to see the ballpark. Food is good but wait a while into the game. We arrived early and the pizza I bought had obviously been in the hot cabinet for a long time. Later in the game it will be fresh. The beer is great and the wine is dire!!!

“Brilliant Night Out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

We visited the ballpark for a Marlins game in September 2012 during a holiday in Miami.

The whole experience was fantastically well organised from start to finish, with parking clearly sign-posted, ticket collection easy and lots of staff on hand to help us (UK holiday makers) find our seats.

The game itself was disappointing, with the Marlins losing, but the stadium is amazing and we could walk right around the whole circuit inside beforehand, and see all the various merchandise and food shops. You can tell it's all been designed for the fans. The atmosphere during the game was great, with each innings split up by lots of hilarious audience participation on the big screens (dance cam etc). We also got a free bobble-head of a Marlins player and a free programme as standard.

Overall - a very satisfying and customer friendly experience which was thoroughly enjoyable and great value for money.

“Excellent Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

I love the new ballpark. The design and the feel of the place is awesome. No matter where you are sitting, you have a great view of the field.
Bravo to the Marlins organization.
