  • Whenever I see the Tides they win, that's good enough for me. Unfortunately the same can't be said for my Braves... But considering a ticket for a good seat only costs $13 this is a great value to watch a game. The food is around $7-$10 for a meal, desserts arround $4-5. Beer is a little too expensive, with prices around $9-10. But it's enjoyable.
  • Clean. Well-designed. Plenty of parking. Plenty of vending and restrooms. Very affordable for the "good" seats. A lot of fun, even for those who aren't extreme baseball fans. There are often fireworks on the weekends and promotional nights where fans are given posters, bobble-heads, and other promotional items.
  • I have never been to a game where I didn't have a great view and a great ballpark hot dog. Prices are all fair or at least expected for a stadium event - that goes for food and the price of admission. In fact I would say its a cheap ticket to get in the door and there is not a bad seat in the house. If you have never been you need to go.
  • Very impressive ballpark, home of the Norfolk Tides (Baltimore Orioles Triple-A baseball team), with lovely architecture and a huge amount of seating. Parking is reasonably priced and reasonably close to the stadium. They do a great job of involving kids and adults alike in the intermission fun. The food is, frankly, more expensive than I'd expect - but the kids' fun like the bounce house, face painting and such are all just $1. It's a great experience, and it's one of the nicest minor league parks in the country!
  • My wife and I went to a company sponsored game with meal at the right field deck. Being wheel chair bound there was only one way to get there, from the left field entrance. Once the game started, we had no way of getting to our seats or to a designated H/C area. Unfortunately we had to leave the park since we had no where to sit. Tides were ahead 8-0 when we left and won 9-5 so hurray for the Tides.
