“Come out at the Ball Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

Want to experience a great live sporting event that you will never forget? Come out to Rogers Centre and cheer on our country's only major league baseball team- The Blue Jays! Any age will feel the excitement and marvel at the remarkable size of the "Dome" Yes, it can be pricy for the extras of a ball park- beer, food, a favourite jersey but you can't put a price on getting caught up in the team play these guys put on! We have sat in a few different locations and of course being right behind in the action on the in field is always my favourite but you can see the game fine from any seat at any budget. Parking can be a challenge and expect to dig into your pocket for at least $20-25 for day parking. Come early and walk the area, there are some other remarkable attractions such as CN Tower, Steam Whistle Museum, and Union Station. Stay afterwards for a light supper. As far as a concert venue goes I have seen a few live shows there many years ago and do not care to see any more concerts at Rogers because of acoustics and the person on the stage is a dot. I much prefer Casino sized venues now. Across the water to Toronto Islands the Rogers Centre lights up the downtown city scape along with it's tall neighbour. Will not disappoint anyone that does not have a fear of heights!

“Expensive to eat and drink”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

If you are going here for a Blue Jays game or a concert, bring lots of money or eat/drink a head of time. Beer is $10 for domestic (mind you, it is for a tall boy), hotdogs are $11 (mind you, they are as long as your arm). Spend the extra money for better seats. It is worth the money.

They bring beer, popcorn and other snacks to your seats or you can go to a wide slection fo vendors. Pick and choose your vendor line up. I was in some that didn't move and one's that moved steadily.

Google Maps or your GPS will tell you to go down Blue Jays Way, but there is a little bridge (Roy Robinson) bridge before Blue Jays Way that is shorter. Just follow the crowd.

Parking is near impossible when an event is going on so either come really early, enjoy a meal or a tourist attraction beforehand. Rogers Centre is right next to the CN Tower. It is a ten minute walk from Union Station/Fairmount Royal York or a 20 minute walk to the bottom of Yonge Street/Hockey Hall of Fame.

“Away the Jays”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013 via mobile

Every time I come to Toronto I get to see the Jays, and maybe I will get to see the win.this time it was the second game in the series with the Yanks and yes you have it the game we saw was the only one they lost in the series unfortunately it wasn't The knuckleballer Dickie,s turn in the rotation but I did get to see Derek Jetter and A Rod (booooooooo) from the Yanks and its doubtful ill see them again

But a great stadium ,the beer isn't cheap, 10 bucks a can, but a good game and a good atmosphere but if you haven't see a live game ,pay them a visit the staff are great and for a baseball novice the regular fans are very forgiving

Better luck next time

“Hope they open the roof!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

We arrived when the roof was closed and I was thankful for the air conditioned break from the muggy conditions outside. However, it just "felt" more like baseball once they open up the roof in second inning. We were sitting in the 500 level and it was getting warm up there- opening the roof was a relief!

If you want a terrific view of the CN Tower, be sure to sit on the third base side. Food was okay but nothing special. Easy to walk to the park if you are staying anywhere downtown. I have no idea where you would park!
