My first sight of the stadium was with the roof closed. I wondered what the big legs were on the outside of the stadium. I thought maybe it was just aesthetics. Later, when I saw the roof pulled back on those legs I was truly awed. I've never seen that.
Some stadiums have special seating that comes with a table and server. I didn't see the option here. Maybe it's only for season ticket holders. The seats I got were very good. Great view of the game and I even had a chance at a foul ball (but I blew it).
When I first entered the park I got a view out the huge window of the Miami skyline. What a great view that is. The roof was already closed and the air conditioning was on and it was perfect. Then it began to rain and I watched as the windows slowly closed. You could still see the skyline, but now it was through the window. Excellent!
I wandered through the team shop with all the expected team merchandise at exorbitant prices. I was amazed to find a few items from the visiting team for sale. I was even more amazed to see some people buying them. Another first for me.
There were a number of stands to get food, but most of them were just the park's own food service. A lot of different options were available, but nothing from local establishments, which seems to be a big trend in other stadiums I've visited (Oakland, Detroit). The prices? Way more expensive than I've seen at other parks. A bottle of beer was $8.50. I thought $6 in the Bronx was bad. And everything else was similarly overpriced.
Most stadiums I've visited have a number of establishments right outside the stadium that cater to the crowds and support the teams. I only saw one place like this at this stadium. Maybe it's still too early.
It's an amazing stadium for architecture and aesthetics and comfort. But I would have preferred more local food options and a better sound system. And I think they should lower the prices of the food and beer. With all that being said, I'd go back without even a second thought.
