Baseball is an essential part of the American culture and a vibrant component of Denver, all of which makes Coors Field such a hub of activity during the summer. It seats more than 50,000 and is regarded as one of most fan-friendly parks in the country. For a few dollars you can take a guided walking tour and learn about the history of the field while taking in all the sights, including the Colorado Rockies dugout and the visiting team's clubhouse.
Great place to see a game, but like all things major league, everything is over-priced, parking will set you back at least $10, and all other things are over-priced. Food is OK but not great, standard over-priced things. Staff and people are very friendly and great views of city and mountains.
I went to a Doubleheader at Coors Field in August of 2005. It was against the Marlins. The two games were scheduled on an off day (monday) becuase in April, one was rained out and the other was snowed out. It was really fun. There weren't a whole lot of people there, but we had a good time chatting with the fans near us who were there talking about denver baseball. the staff is really friendly. @ Coors there are purple seats in the upper deck designating that they are a mile exactly above sea level.
The Concessions are good and I'm told they rarely serve the Rky Mountain Oysters anymore. The Rockies won both games - one on a walkoff. It was a great experience.
Coors Field is a amazing stadium. Even if you get the nosebleeder seats it still a great view. The rockies haven't been doing well the last couple of years so not much traffic and you can get parking right across the street from Coors. If you get high seats you can sit 1 Mile above sea level. Food is expensive though 3 bucks for a medium soda. But i recommend a Rockies game at coors anytime.
I am in the army and havent been home much in the last ten years but when I do go home I make it a point to go to the ballpark even if it is to just look at what is pretty amazing since we all remember what downtown used to look llike and I like the names on the bricks the food is good a ballpark hotdog anyday over some stuffy restuarant cant wait to take my family there this summer
Buy the cheapest seats you can and spend most of the time on the concourse that circles the field. $25 seats end up costing $32 with taxes and fees, and we left them after 4th inning. Hundreds of over 70 ushers keep you from the $$$ seats, but the standing view from concourse is great.
PA system was louder than the fans, and Mets fans were louder than the locals. $6 Coors draft seemed a little steep, especially in Coors Field.
Visitors bullpen is amazing, especially compared to old Fenway.
I liked the fact that I was able to park for free north of the stadium, which allowed me to hit the interstate 25 without any traffic issues. Also the $4.00 seats are a bargain, but since it was the 4th of July, 2006, I wound up having to purchase a $36.00 ticket, which was probably a nine times better seat anyway, I suppose. The concessions are high, so be prepared. Coors Field is spotless, beautiful, and huge. It's obvious the Coloradans are very proud of this place. Another plus is all the places to hang out, eat, socialize before/after the games. For some odd reason Denver bars offer pints of Pabst Blue Ribbon draft for $1.00 or $2.00. This is a tasty bargain! But, watch out! For $10.00 you might not remember the evening.
