Do not come to noon game with 90+ degree heat!
Jun 2021 • Family
The stadium experience is a 10 as many have reviewed. Another opinion as spouse of a super fan. Do not come to a day game in the summer! Blazing hot and little reprieve. The stadium does their beat with fans and such but seats are brutal! Helps if have access to vip lounge which has ac but no view. Can watch the televisions to view. Please consider evening games only or cool day. Do not make my mistake. Good luck!

Go to Batting Practice Before the Game
Jun 2021 • Family
The Reds HOF offers a batting practice experience before the game. Purchase tickets online in advance. Make sure you bring your glove and a pen. They let you watch BP from right field so plenty of chances to catch baseballs hit into the stands. Towards the end of the experience they allow access to the first base side of the stands. If you have young kids they can stand down by the net and see if they can snag an autograph as players finish warming up.
Stadium overall is very nice. Lots of local food options including Big Boys and Skyline Chili. The beer options are a little limited and I didn’t see any vendors selling cotton candy.

Reds Game
Jun 2021
This is a great park to view a baseball game. It's a fairly new stadium so the facilities are very good. Tickets were also affordable.

Reds game on a Fireworks Friday
May 2021
A very nice ballpark to see a Reds game. We went on a Fireworks Friday and had a wonderful time. Everyone was so friendly at the ballpark. We brought our drinks (water bottles ) and snacks ( some crackers and peanuts). Not a bad view anywhere in the ballpark. The parking rate for the ballpark is $ 20 but prices do go down further away from the stadium. Food and drinks at the ballpark ( in my opinion) is expensive. Our total cost to the game was for 2 tickets, section 417, row r, was about $ 110.00 ( that includes parking, ticket cost and ticket fees for online ordering).
Important: Go to Reds website to read over what is allowed in the ballpark and the size of the bag. Also, if your there for a birthday, anniversary or anything else...customer service will print ( for free ) a certificate to mark the event.

Tour Non Game Day

Took a tour of the stadium on a non game day. Kelly was the tour kind who did a great job with her enthusiasm and energy. Tour was very interesting, glad we did it.

Nice Ballpark on the Riverfront
May 2021 • Couples
The Great American Ballpark is a very nice baseball venue in the modern 21st century style. Great views of the Ohio River over the outfield expanses. Seating is commensurate with other parks built since the early 90s. Even with the currently limited crowd capacity, it was easy to get good seats a week prior to the game. Easy access and parking adjacent to the stadium. Good craft beers, although I was a little disappointed that I couldn’t find any Rhinegeist Truth, my Cincinnati favorite. We had to have the Skyline Chili Dogs, which were were tasty but rather small. All in all, a great day at the ballpark!

Reds game
May 2021 • Couples
Fun game, Park is fairly new and nice. Lots of in between inning activities. Be sure and get there early to eat or have a drink on the closed street in front of the ball park. Parking right next-door cost $17 a little farther walk you can get it for 12.

It's nice, but doesn't stand out as something unique
Nov 2019
I enjoyed the ball park and the theme match with the home club, but I didn't see anything that really stood out as revolutionary or unique. It's location is great, right on the river, but I don't thin you can see the river anywhere from inside it, so that it a bit of an opportunity lost. It's a baseball park.

Even though the park was closed due to COVID-19 it was very interesting to walk around the outside of the stadium and look at the Statues and plaques displayed around the outside perimeter
