Awesome experience! If you’re a real Patriot fan you have to at least attend one game in at Gillette Stadium.

Big Pats fan and have been trying to get here for a while now. Enjoyed the game and stadium and thought the fans were great. Did some tailgating in the lot and that was cool. Traffic in and out is bad but it is like that at any event where 60,000 people plus are attending. Just have to be patient and allow for plenty of time and a lot of walking from the parking lots to the stadium so be prepared. They say the lots open 4 hrs before game time but they opened early than that. We left for a 10 min drive at 12:30 from our hotel for a 4:25 game. Got to the lots around 1:15 and were way back. People had to already been there for a couple of hrs ahead of time. Only negative I have to say is ticket prices. Can't get them on ticketmaster so have to buy them from a third party and pay a fortune. I paid 3x face value. They say the Pats sell out every year but there were thousands of empty seats. That is disappointing because I would live to go to more games but can't afford it with the high prices you have to pay. Don't like heights so need to get tickets in lower level. Had section 112 row 18 on Pats side and they were great seats. Went in early Nov and all I can say is dress very warm.

Any football fan, regardless of how you feel about the Patriots, should appreciate watching a game here. The fan base is incredible, such a fun atmosphere! Come early and tailgate to absorb the entire NFL experience.

Getting in or out of the parking lot and the traffic associated with it is a complete nightmare. Be prepared because it will take hours to get where you want to be. Parking was $40USD.

The concessions setup is absurd. All concessions and restrooms are on one level, which creates a complete mob scene during halftime when everyone is either trying to get to a concession or a bathroom! There are people coming at you from all directions, you literally have to push your way through. It's a recipe for disaster when 60,000 people are all going to the exact same place as you. Good luck trying to "get in line" because you can't find where it starts or ends.

TIP: Head to concessions or bathroom either right before halftime or soon after to avoid a stampede. Like other sporting venues, food and drinks will cost you an arm and a leg.

Patriot place is a must see! The history and memorabilia is definitely worth the visit.

Didn't know what to expect. Drove up and it is GIGANTIC. There was not a game going on while I was in town but still drove up to Gillette to check it out. I cannot believe the size and it's accompanied by the pro shop and an entire mall. Was a little disappointed that none of the staff could seem to answer my question about how many people the stadium held.

Went to see the 2012 New England/Denver Game. The Club Level was very nice and open, the food was good, and seating was comfortable. It dose feel like you have to drive to the Moon to get there though.
