Great facility, easy to get around, excellent acoustic with the opened roof. Food and drinks available. Can't bring anything from outside.

“Haven't been here for a ball game but loved it as a concert venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

Just went to an event where 35,000 people attended. Remarkably little wait time to get in, and we were even able to get on the elevators to get out with a short wait time.

The staff did a great job of helping route people to go to other entrances, as we all tend to go to the first ones, and all were all friendly and good natured.

Our favorite moment from the Minute Maid Park Staff---- the elevator attendant saying, about the Paul McCartney concert, "That old man really got it on tonight". Indeed he did.

The concert was in November, and a little chilly, but it was to allow awesome pyrotechnics - so worth a tiny little bit of discomfort. I will definitely be attending future concerts at Minute Maid, and my husband enjoys ballgames there.

“Would like it better if the Astros were any good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

The stadium is very cool with the retractable roof. Worth seeing if you can get past the lack luster enthusiasm of the crowd

“Air Conditioned Bliss”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

Houston in August--you better have A/C. What better way to see a baseball game in comfort. Would've been 5 stars if not for the $$$ tickets and concessions--come on man! You've got the worst record in MLB and are still charging full price tix?!
