“A Safe,Sane,Reasonably Priced Family Diversion but no "Destination"”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

If you are near the North Austin city limit marker on Interstate I35, you are minutes away from a convenient, family afternoon treat: the attractive, clean, and safe environs of the only minor league stadium in the Central Texas area-- the place the "Round Rock Express" calls home.
Although this facility is something of a landmark, only a baseball fanatic would even suggest you consider this the primary purpose of a visit to this area of the State. A great add-on though if you are visiting other attractions in the area like the University of Texas, the State Capital complex, etc.
The almost new, speck and span facility, which touts lots of convenient parking, decent food, good seating, modest ticket pricing etc. is located a few miles East of Interstate I35 on Texas Highway 79. Here you can enjoy an afternoon of fun with family or friends as you mingle with the friendly, hospitable locals. This is "major-league" entertainment presented at a somewhat lower skill-setting but gobs of color, sights, and sounds that can only mean "baseball".
For those who prefer air-conditioned, somewhat sterile setting, this is not the place. In particular if you must avoid sunshine, do not attend an afternoon summer game but opt for the early evening engagements.

I am confident you will be pleased even if you are just a casual baseball fan and very pleased if you enjoy college-level play. But if you are the only one in your group that detests the game regardless of the skill level, not to worry as you could easily while away your time at the essentially on-site BBQ restaurant, "The Salt Lick" which is the Round Rock version of the Austin BBQ classic by the same name. (Do not miss this "diversion" before or after the game if you are a BBQ aficionado!).

“Family fun”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

We took my 7 year old son this summer and he had so much fun. There were activities behind center field - a rock climbing wall and a bungee jumper. There was always something going on between the in inns to keep the kids interested. I would highly recommend this for a fun family outing.

“Fun place!”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Fun place and not a bad seat in the house! Staff is helpful and the baseball is always no matter what team you are rooting for. Excellent BBQ right on the parking lot. Get there early as there is always a full house!

“Not for the Sophisticated”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

I'm not a fan, but when I took my visiting 10 yr. old grandson, he said "It's almost like a real ballpark, but much smaller." But, he's a very sophisticated kid.

“Round Rock Express”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

This is a great minor league park, outfitted with pool, basketball, jumpy play things, and all types of fun activities for the kids. It distracts a bit from the game, but it's a great way to bring the whole family and keep them involved for all 9 innigns. The wife and kids can go do other things, while you and the oldest son watch the game. Great Express store inside for garb. Decent ballpark food, and really nice grounds in Round Rock, TX brought to you by Dell. One of the better minor league parks I've seen, and good pricing for admission. They also do music shows after some games and stand alone when the team is away. There are a lot of different events held here outside of the Express.
