  • DISCLAIMER: This is a review of the ballpark itself, not the Ducks, not the Ducks management or players, but strictly the ballpark and its management. Overall it's a nice place. Tickets are cheap, parking is free, and food is considerably cheaper than a Major League game. The only major issue is that there are two ice cream machines for the entire stadium, so after the 3rd inning, you will easily be waiting 20 minutes if you want ice cream. On the minor side, sometimes the staff likes to just hang out on the stairs and not move so stairs are sometimes blocked...
  • Great place for family fun. Great seats for $13! I'm talking field level. Good food at OK prices. Lots to do for the kids, give-aways all night. Quack Jack is fun for the kids. Very interactive. Photos show from row 3 only $13!
  • Family friendly. Good baseball. Every seat is a good one. The sausage and peppers is excellent.
  • Free parking, good and beverages reasonably priced. Baseball stadium geared for kids with bouncy house, inflatable slide and fun activities between innings.
  • Good prices, good food and great times for adults and kids. This place has activities for the kids throughout the game, great concession stands, like Smokin Al's BBQ, decent prices, clean bathrooms, and best if all, fireworks after the game.
