“Gone fishing? Marlins fans took the bait.....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

It is a shame that this ballpark has turned into a bit of a disaster. Not a complete disaster, but at the cost of a half a billion, the word disaster should be no where near the headlines. The park, for all its colourful nature seems a cold and full of concrete. It made me think of Rogers Centre but brighter. The sightlines are decent, though the Marlin homerun display in Centre field is quite the distraction. The bobblehead museum is pretty cool and unique to a baseball park for sure. Considering the tax payer mone that went into this facility, you wish that owner Jeffrey Loria would have kept his word and tried to build a winner by spending money on players and keeping them in Miami. What pro athlete would not want to be in Miami? The city is great, the clubs and restaurants, the women are plentiful. Yet, Loria got his costly park and lied to fans. So much more could have been expected of Marlins Park and that is why I can't go any higher than an average rating.

“Technology Galore”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

We didn't get to watch a game, but the design of the facility is state of the art. I believe that is where the BCS baseball series will be held and the field is immaculate. The design is easily seen from the Hitlon Blue Lagoon by the airport, and when we went by you could see the improvements that they have made to make this a top of the line stadium in the United States.

“Best park for the best team”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

Went for the firs time to Marlins Ballpark; against Nationals. We got Stanton's bobblehead at entrance. Food was great. Seats where great. In fact there are no bad seats. The crowd is really into the game and everyone has a great time.

“Boys of summer play Miami”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

We had the greatest time in this spanking new park. It was bring your pet day and the roving camera put their little faces all up on the gigantic super high-def screen. The crowd was so relaxed and happy, plus the Marlins won that day.If choosing seats along the baselines make sure you're on the side where the view of home plate won't be blocked by the traffic up and down the aisle closest to your seat. Monitors are supposed to stop aisle traffic when play resumes but the clearing effect doesn't always work in time. We missed a couple of important plays.
