Minute Maid Park, Houston

(2,000+ reviews on the web)
Tourist Spot
Minute Maid Park has been home to Major League Baseball's Houston Astros since 2000. Constructed with a retractable roof (the first of its kind in the city), the stadium can adjust its environment to combat bad weather and accommodate good conditions. The field consists of natural grass in sharp contrast to its predecessor's AstroTurf. Catch an Astros game if you're there during the season, otherwise, you can explore the facility on a guided tour, which takes you through the dugout, press box, bullpen, and luxury suites to see the internal functioning of a professional baseball team. Consult the stadium's event schedule for information regarding special offers and exhibits. Work out when and for how long to visit Minute Maid Park and other Houston attractions using our handy Houston holiday planner.

  • Here from Chicago definitely not ready for the large cubs fans base, two days in a row out of a specialty feature sandwich. Left field upper area has prepay for your food and drink 2 of the 3 machines didn't work. Beautiful ballpark fireworks on Friday were a pleasant surprise. Some hot dog vendors would be nice inside I would have purchased both days but lines were long so I didn't bother. Nice people better signs for directions many people struggled to get to there seats.
  • Absolutely loved everything about our visit here. As a matter of fact we enjoyed it so much we bought tickets the following day! The atmosphere is great, loved the variety of food selections, and I love how they are all about making it a great experience for kids. My son was able to run bases after Sunday's game and the following day we sat near a ball boy who would give the foul balls to the kids in the area. I am looking forward to going back for sure. Go Astros!!!
  • I love the Juice Box! My all time favorite stadium. There's not a bad seat in the house. Parking is much easier now $10-$25 depending on how close you want to park. I wish they would open the roof more! Great crowds, awesome team, fireworks are awesome on Fridays! now we just need to bring home that pennant!
  • Great park, very clean. Its always fun to watch the roof retract for Friday night fireworks, and the permanent St Arnold's bar is pretty great. Go Stros!
  • An inside stadium that can also open up apart of its roof. Really cool, the seats weren't that comfortable, but I don't go to baseball stadiums so not sure if all of them don't have padding. However the good there was awesome, and you can get a full bottle of wine in a container... Not sure if you need that but cool that the option is there.
