“I agree. This is a great American ball park!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

While in Cincinnati, we had to take in a Reds game and were very happy we did. It allowed us to cross another stadium off our MLB park bucket list but it was a great experience! It's a great place to take in a game. It has everything a great ball park should have. The home team came up short during the game we watched but it was quite a sight to see Carlos Gonzalez of the Colorado Rockies have a 3 home run game! If you're in town, be sure to go see a Reds game. You won't be disappointed.

“REDLEGS!!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

First, I'm a huge fan of the Reds so it is going to be difficult to give an unbiased opinion of their home field but I'll try. GAPB is a huge upgrade over Riverfront Stadium. Although I have fond memories of Riverfront it could not hold a candle to the comfort and convenience of the Reds current home. The food and concessions offering are excellent. You can get everything from sushi to hot dogs. Mr. Reds Smokehouse is especially good and highly recommended. If you are into craft beer the selection is great. If you need a souvenir there are two team stores and other small outlets. The concourses are wide and easy to navigate. The Reds did a great job making the park family friendly. We take our children (6-2yo) and when they get restless there is always something for them to do down the right-field line in the kids zone. Stroller check is available. I've been to 10+ ballparks and this really is a great place to watch a game.

“Go Reds!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Create wonderful memories by watching the awesome Cincinnati Reds. Whether your a baseball fan or not, always fun at the stadium. There isn't much they missed-playground for the kids, shops for the "shoppers", bars for those who prefer adult beverages and lot's of good eats! (Remember it's Cincinnati and we love to eat here!) Fireworks on Friday nights is my favorite time to go! Buy and ticket, grab your peanuts and wear RED-get to a game!

“fun times!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

Perfect atmosphere to enjoy an American tradition, a day at a baseball game. Enjoy a game, eat some ballpark food & relax with a beer! The kids love the excitement of the games and crowd cheering. Plus you have the surrounding area to shop, eat, and tour with the city & Ohio river.

“Beautiful Ballpark”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

Not being a baseball fan, I attended a game in one of the boxes behind home plate. What an experience! This could make me become a baseball fan. The ballpark is gorgeous and the whole experience (except that the Reds lost) was a perfect evening. If you are taking kids, make sure you go on a Friday night and stay for the fireworks. This is a very well-run operation and made for a magical evening.
