  • We try to go to winter jam every year. Lucas oil is a great venue and we always have an outstanding time. Can’t wait till this year. We’ve been to colts games monster trucks and concerts and this venu...  more »
  • It is a stadium called the House that once belonged to a Colts Peyton Manning. It now stands a statue of Manning. Even when the Colts team store game is not open. Union Station right next to the access from the Centre is superb. I think it's worth just taking photos at the stadium looks pretty clean.

  • Overall the venue is nice, bathrooms kept relatively clean. Inside the entrance you'll see interesting displays showcasing motor sports of Indiana. Ticket pricing these days is outrageous but the expenses doesn't end once you get inside Lucas. They have a wide variety of concession options. The food options and quality are actually decent, but prices are not. For two people expect to shell out $45 to $50 bucks to get a light snack and soft drinks.
  • There was tons of ten to twenty dollar parking within two blocks. Great tailgating party right outside the stadium. Two really good bands playing before the game. The escalators made it easy compared to other stadiums. Retractable roof and large sliding end zone windows are not only cool they allow the best both worlds. The food is good and the beer is cold.
  • Lucas Oil Stadium opened in downtown Indianapolis in 2008 for the Indianapolis Colts and is one of the centerpieces of not only the city, but for the National Football League (NFL). It is a stadium, with a true downtown feel with bars, hotels, restaurants and nightlife just a few steps away from the main entrance. It’s design also blends well with the surrounding area, but stands out magnificently from passersby off nearby I-70. The $720,000 million stadium features a retractable roof with a spectacular view of downtown when open, synthetic field turf, 137 private suites and seats 62, 421 people for football games. Whether the roof is open or not during a game is made 90 minutes prior kickoff, but fans are advised well before that. The roof takes only 11 minutes to open or close and when it’s open, the stadium has natural air conditioning and a wide-open view of the skies and downtown buildings.
  • We'll run and kept during my visit. Nice conference rooms. We we here for a convention, the field was well kept and as were the stands. I have never been here for a game but the acoustics made it seem like It would be a fun place to be with a full house. the stadium could use better bathroom spacing and maybe even a few more.
  • Super expensive, but that is to be expected. I think each section can see the field well, but some of the smaller higher sections are actually pretty comfortable. Make sure you dress for the weather if the roof is open. If you get a chance, buy tickets worth access to the field after the game. It is quite an experience to be down on the field looking up at the stands.

Where to stay in Indianapolis

With limited public transportation in the city, those traveling without a car should consider the location of their accommodations carefully. To stay within walking distance of Indianapolis’ best restaurants and bars, look for a hotel or apartment rental in the arty Mass Ave or Broad Ripple neighborhoods. Downtown lodgings are often more expensive, but provide easy access to Indy’s best-known attractions for those on vacation. Bed and breakfasts in the city’s residential areas provide a healthy dose of Midwestern charm.
