i saw this just now at the ticketmaster site...20 bucks for a fish tank seat? i knew ticket prices went up, but not by that much. i'm hoping fsn airs that april 23rd game, as these seat prices are just atrocious.

That's prices on Gameday as far as I know. I believe Outfield Terrace would be 15 in advance. Fish Tank would be 9 in advance I think.

That should help you understand what costs when.

April 23rd is a Monday, so if you buy your tickets now.....The Fish Tank should cost $9 + tax. If you buy online, you get charged those fees too.

UPDATE: I just tried to buy a Fish Tank seat for that game and it was the following....
Marlins Fish Tank Advanced Ticket Price: US $9.00
Ticketmaster Convenience Charge: US $3.75
TicketFast NOW: US $2.50
Total: US $15.25

I suggest you could have them mail it to you via Standard Mail for free.....or just call 1-877-MARLINS and using Will Call Windows at the Stadium to pick up your tickets.

okay that makes more sense. but this is still bad for people outside of miami, as it's not as easy for me to get tickets and drive two hours just to get them. terrible decision by the marlins there.

and yes, i hate ripoff master. i rather get my tickets from the scalper down the street (which i have done before). they are just corporate scalpers.

and sorry, that was april 24th i was talking about, not the 23rd. i'm wondering if anyone here would have a spare ticket or two to that game, as that game isn't shown on tv in south florida.

Just call 1-888-MARLINS and buy your tickets. You can pick them up at the Will Call window at the ballpark on the day of the game but you pay for them over the phone with a credit/debit card. That way you get the advanced price.

and what about the rip-off master fees? is this going to be regular advanced price, no strings attached, or rip off master prices?

i'll probably wait until about a week before gametime before ordering, as fsn could pick up this game.

They may charge the Ticketmaster fee....but I think 1-888-MARLINS is the ticket office directly. So they may not charge anything....call them and check.

Never too early to get your tix if you can go!

I'm with you there, I know back when Marlins tickets were less expensive I've gotten upper deck seats and the service charge has cost practically as much as the seats themselves. :mad

Ripoff master, I like it. I will start using it.

I bought rage against the machine tickets and the surcharge was $14.50 a ticket!

The addition of extra fees on gameday is not very sensible. This team counts on nice walkup crowds especially with the weather concerns people claim to have, they dont want to buy tickets ahead of time. After people show up on gameday the first time and realize they are charged more for coming to the game just because they are showing up on the day of the game, those walk up crowds will not be as large which I assume will hurt overall attendance because a lot of the fans can be quite fickle. You want to attract extra people to the ballpark rather than giving them reasons to turn away.

I would have been willing to give up my tix for that Tuesday game until I noticed the obvious Braves connection. LOL I just can not let a Braves fan sit in Row 1. Sorry. Can't do it. Nothing personal, you understand.
Seriously tho... If we aren't going to be able to make it you are welcome to our tix. Fish Tank, Row 1, on the aisle. I'll take care of a fellow PBC fan no matter what team she roots for, as long as it isn't the Mets.

What you could do is just plan ahead and buy tickets at the stadium when you are already there for a game.

This new gameday price thing sucks. Hopefully it means people buy advance tickets they don't use and you have plenty of scalpers.
