I got to Target Field at around 1:30 on Monday afternoon (I got to miss 2 1/2 hours of school!). I had an awesome time! Here are the good and the bad things I noticed on my Opening Day experience:
The Good: Getting into the ballpark was very easy. All the gates were wide open and we could enter any gate we wanted. The view from our seats (in section 101) was not fantastic, but it still was much better than the views in the Metrodome! After the game, I noticed that there was more handicapped parking on level 3 of Ramp A than before. I had noticed there wasn’t much handicapped parking on that level when we parked there the first time I went to Target Field. And, of course, the Twins won the game!
The Bad: At one of the concession stands, we asked for a straw. The person operating it said they didn’t have any straws, even though Michael and I were told on our tour that they did have them. There also were very long lines for the family bathrooms, which could have been just because it was Opening Day.
