“Great, accessible ball park!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

I'm so used to having inaccesible ball parks that are great once you get into them but it takes a major planning session to get there. This one, we parked about 2 blks away, walked in, and there it was in all its splendor. So fun. And pretty good food too and decent prices, also an anomaly.

“The Classic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2012

What can you say that Susan Serandon (spell?) didn't already? Classic minor league where you see the players eyes, it's great.

“Fun night out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

Although only a minor league team, there is generally good turn out for Bulls games in Durham. The arena frequently has $1 concession night to give your wallet a break and there are fireworks after every Friday night game.

“Wonderful Ballpark!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2012

Great place to see a game. There isn't a bad seat in entire ballpark, easy access with free parking is plus. The restaurants nearby within walking distance make for a great outing. Kids area has great activities for kids.

“great deal, especially w/Friday night fireworks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012

We bought our tickets online, which were $10 each for seats behind home plate. The park is surrounded by large corporate buildings, which are actually quite lovely against the night sky. Some of the concession stands had really long lines but you could find shorter ones by walking around a bit. Decent beer on offer, but take all the tickets stubs with you if you plan on buying for people in your group as well as yourself (the concession people can only sell one beer per stub, and I didn't see any beer or food vendors getting to our section, other than someone schlepping funnel cakes). I was frankly also impressed by the variety of sponsors, which included Burt's Bees and Witherspooon Roses, and the crowd was lively in spite of the fact that the home team was getting spanked.
