Tropicana Field, St. Petersburg
(3.8/5 based on 1,600+ reviews on the web)
Tropicana Field, the home field of Tampa Bay Rays, is the only active dome-shaped Major League Baseball stadium with a fixed roof. It seats more than 31,000 people. Head to a huge tank filled with stingrays, an homage to the team's name, beyond the right center-field fence if you'd like to pet the creatures. Those more interested in the baseball aspect will want to take the behind-the-scenes tour, which offers access to the field, press box, and more. Check out the Ted Williams Museum and Hitters Hall of Fame, too. Though Williams was never a Tampa Bay Ray--he played for the Red Sox long before the Rays even became a team--the museum honors players with Williams' passion and talent for hitting. As you enter the stadium, note the tropical-theme mosaic: It is the fifth-longest outdoor mosaic in the United States.

  • The lighting is terrible and gloomy. Concessions were mislabeled (can't get nachos at the nacho cantina for example).

  • We saw the Red Sox lose, but it was a great place to watch a game. Only problem we had was there were not enough concession stands open. We were on the middle section and had to walk down to the lower level cause there was only 1 confession stand open and it was 30 people deep.
  • First, I must say that the entire staff at the ballpark was incredibly nice, pleasant and helpful. They truly were the sole reason we enjoyed our visit to Tropicana Field as the facility itself was... Lackluster. "Baseball in a tin can" pretty much sums it up. Still, the property was clean if not overly well maintained.
  • Good spot, little dated. Would not suggest going for concert unless you get on the field. Club house is AMAZING!
  • I have never experienced worse customer service in my life. We bought tickets to an almost empty Rays - Orioles game and had to deal with the rudest security/ushers I have ever encountered. Our tickets were for row GG on the lower deck. When we show them to the usher, it's such a slow game, he say's go ahead and sit in DD. We thank him, do so and proceed to enjoy the game. After coming back from a group Beer/restroom break, another usher comes up to two of our party and asks for tickets. they show him and say, yeah we're meant to sit a few rows back, but it's a dead stadium and the other usher was kind enough to let us just sit here. He flips out, snatches the tickets out of their hands and tells them they are stealing by sitting in seats they didn't pay for and they better move quick before he kicks them out. My friends didn't like his attitude or aggressive demeanor, so they went to customer service to report it. The CS called his supervisor and he asked what would you like me to do? My friend said, honestly a simple apology would be more than enough for us to go back to the seats we paid for, and have a great day. The supervisor calls the guy down and when he gets there he's once again, rude abrasive and basically confrontational. He refuses to apologize and proceeds to antagonize my friends. As he's doing this more and more security and eventually police show up and stand around the discussion. My friends are bigger guys, but they're respectful and in no way aggressive. Instead of offering a simple apology, it was clear these Ushers/security personnel were only trying to escalate the situation, to the point law enforcement would have to intervene and they could just trespass us from the stadium. Maybe a decent strategy for dealing with belligerent scumbags, but definitely not how you want to treat the few people interested in attending your overpriced games frequently throughout the year. Needless to say, Tropicana field is a place none us will step foot in again for life.
  • It was a very nice field to perform on, but the actual stadium itself was a bit too small for comfort and got crowded way too quickly.
