Ticket prices at Marlins Park

Recommended Posts

So I'm thinking about going to Friday nights game with friends and family.  Looking to buy 5 tickets.

 

For a team that closes its entire 300 section because not enough people go to the games, I think it's totally ridiculous that it costs a minimum of $20 to get into the ballpark. 

 

Why not offer $6 seats? What's the downside?  A hot dog and a beer is $18+ so why not try and get as many bodies as possible in?

 

I get that if 2 people go on a weeknight, it's very easy to move from your $20 seat to a seat that costs double that.  But that doesn't work well with 5 people on Firework Friday.  

 

I'll admit that I'm frustrated because I used to have a MAJOR hookup at the old stadium (Admin can vouch for that) but damn, man. $20 gets you a seat in the Home Run Porch which is like watching the game from outer space. 

 

Now I'm stuck with deciding to pay roughly $28 a seat for Sec 40 (G's Corner) or Lexus Legends Row 1 for $48 a seat.

Seats in left field aren't that bad

You're complaining about sitting on the first level (granted in the outfield but still first level) for $20 bucks but you'll be totally fine with paying $6 for sitting nose bleed and assume you'll sit up there.. I get its frustrating especially having a prior hook up and now having to pay, trust me, everybody had "hook up" for marlins tickets lol I couldn't give them away before and even now still have a problem.

To be fair, the first level tickets in the outfield are $25 plus all of the conveinance fees.  So it's a $30 ticket.

The fees are really shitty, sometimes it seems like tickets double in price after them

 

I agree.  There has been a numerous time where I think I find a good deal and hit checkout only to find out there $30-40 worth of fees and get completely turned off and not buy them.

Yes it does. Age means nothing. All seats have access so elevators. You tell the scalper you need 5 tickets together. He gives you 5 tickets together. Whats so difficult? You can even park in the garage for $15 if you want. 

 

I think we're having a misunderstanding.

 

I was under the impression you were saying it's easy to buy tickets from a scalper and then once inside the park go and sit WHEREVER WE WANT. 

 

Anyway, I ask again, where are all of these scalpers you're taking about?

Heck no^ I eat before I go to the game. Forget that lol. Then I eat after I leave the game, because I am starving.

 

How is parking in the shell though? I got Season tickets in G's corner but the drive plus the parking is what sucks.

 

I've parked at the Shell 3 times (paid $10) and have zero issues. I also spend less time in traffic.
