Kauffman Stadium, Kansas City

(4.7/5 based on 1,800+ reviews on the web)
Sit in the seat of famous first baseman Buck O’Neil at Kauffman Stadium. Built in 1973, and once called Royals Stadium, the building is an example of modernist stadium design. Since a two-year renovation finished in 2009, the stadium has hosted Major League Baseball's All-Star Game, among other major events. The park's most famous feature is its large fountain and waterfall, which runs before and after the game and in between innings.

  • Kaufman Stadium is beautiful. It is a great place to go to watch the KC Royals play. I don't think there is a bad seat in the stadium.  more »

  • Service throughout the stadium is fast, friendly and always with a smile. They keep the stadium clean and well kept even during the game. Sight lines are very good no matter where your seats are. Ticket prices are reasonable compared to other venues and they do a great job catering to families and kids.
  • I grew up with the fountains at the old Kauffman stadium. No ads, tons of green space, no seats in the outfield other than the $5 G.A. tickets. The players and the game were the focus. I was very nervous about "renovating" what I felt was one of the most beautiful ballparks in America. Well, they knocked it out of the park. I love walking around the stadium, sitting in the outfield and being able to see the pitchers warming up better than with the old bullpens. Thank you Royals.
  • Through Royals are always my team but regardless great stadium. Museum has wonderful displayed baseball & team history. Lots of food choices. Just a must do attraction in Kansas City
  • Kauffman is great. The only thing I would recommend is AVOID Craft & Draft: The experience is vastly overpriced, with overworked wait staff, one of whom was rude to us and wasn't properly trained in all her duties. She added charges to our bill of things we did not order, and she ran our card twice, so we got double-charged. She got impatient with us when we tried to point out the error and get it corrected. Not appreciated. The rest of Kauffman is fantastic, though. No complaints!
  • Everyone loves a day at the ballpark! Parking isn't overly-expensive for Royals games (yet). However, with higher ticket prices, the number of games we attend has dropped dramatically. We love watching them on TV when they are winning, we love seeing them play in-person when they suck and tickets are cheap!
