“Needs a makeover”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Considering that this stadium is no less expensive than other stadiums in other major cities, it is in dire need of a makeover. Granted, the city didn't pass the bill which would've renovated the place, but may be time for the owner to invest some capital.

“Enjoyable Visits”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

I've been to a couple of NFL games here and really enjoyed both of them. I'm not a Dolphins fan as such but having neve been to an NFL game and being in Miami I thought I should try and check out a game. The first time I went the opposition was the Falcons with Michael Vick and the second time I went a few years later it was the Cowboys with Tony Romo. Needless to say the Dolphins lost both times. I did enjoy the experience though and it was good to see the fans mixing unlike in UK football (soccer as they call it in the US) stadiums. There was a small altercation near me when I went the first time but it was no big deal. Getting away from the stadium is a bit of a challenge even if you don't have a car. In fact I had to fight off some Cowboys fans on my second visit to get my taxi. If you like the NFL and you're in the area, it's worth checking out.

“Big disappointment”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

I can't believe that a team as historic as the Dolphins in a city as grand as Miami have to play in such an out dated stadium. In South Florida its hot year round so when you have that plus the sun beating you in the face it really changes your mind real quick to either get a ticket in the sky boxes or watch it at home. The worst part is that all the games are played at 1pm which melts you. I hope this changes soon and they're able to improve this stadium.

“Nice venue awful team”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

The park is only 2 years old and has a lot to offer. As expected food prices are astronomical including Kosher food, but at least they have it.
The place shows surprising wear and tear very quickly especially concrete.

Seats are adeqaute, views are fine, scoreboard nice. This is more a place to be seen rather than ballpark in the classic sense. Besids, the MArlins are awful. You should be able to get cheap tickets with low attendances. Do not overpay for parking--thee will be plenty

“Wrestlemania XXVIII”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Getting a cab to the stadium wasnt an issue. Quick drop off and easy entry. However the afternoon sun isnt pleasent sat with no roof. To be fair i could of prepared better but still was nice, being cooked for two hours with no cover.

The views from all seats were amazing, however getting home. Only attend if you bring your own car, or arrange a private pick up. Theres NO public transport links to Miami city center, cabs are so few and far between took 3 hours to wave one down. Even then we were quoted a stupid price, no meter at 130am we were told. Paid $30 to get there, $80 back.

Thats my only issue. Your stuck in Miami Gardens.
