We are from Massachusetts so are accustomed to long lines and no parking at Fenway. Pleasantly, we were able to walk right in with no waiting at security & consessions at Tropicana Field. The seats were comfy, bathrooms clean & the game was fun.

If you like baseball this is not the place to go. It is empty, it echoes and the sound system is like a high school gymnasium. The only saving grace is that the temperature is right all the time.

I would give this one star if it weren't for my love of MLB. I have visited maybe 15 MLB venues around the country. This is, by far, the very worst. I am a Rays fan, having lived in Tampa now for almost 20 years,...More
