Accommodations for Disabilities

You won’t have access to the entire concourse and must stay in the outfield for the first 30 minutes. When the remaining gates open 90 minutes before the game starts, you’ll be free to explore the whole park.

Bring Your Own Food

You can bring outside food into Coors Field as long as it is an individual serving size (no full size pizza boxes). Wrap the items so it’s easy to determine what they are.

Coors Field| Must Do

Snap a photo with “The Player” and the Clock

Oddly, the Rockies don’t have any statues of their own players. Instead, they have a generic baseball player standing outside of the home plate gate. While “The Player” isn’t a depiction of anyone in particular, the Rockies added it in 2005 to commemorate Branch Rickey. Rickey was a past GM and President of the LA Dodgers and is most known for signing Jackie Robinson. The statue makes for a great photo opp, especially if you can also frame up the analog clock sitting atop the gate.

The Rooftop

The Rooftop is one of the coolest social concepts in Major League Baseball. It offers a full bar with specialty drinks, lawn games, and great views of downtown and the mountains. Prior to the start of the game, the Rooftop runs a happy hour with $3 Coors Lights. This area is open to all fans and doesn’t require a special ticket for entry. However, the Rockies do sell Rooftop tickets for general admission in sections 310-314. Those tickets are $15 and you’ll get $6 in concession or merchandise credit. That’s a great deal! Just keep in mind that the Rooftop is literally a mile above sea level, and can feel far from the field. If you’re interested in the baseball game that’s being played below, this will be more of a novelty spot for you, since the atmosphere can be pretty partyish.

Watch for The Fountains

In center field, you’ll see 7 fountains that shoot water nearly 40 feet in the air. They go off at the beginning of the game, every time a Rockies player hits a home run, and during the 7th inning stretch. The area surrounding the fountains is also beautifully landscaped with trees and plants native to Colorado. The visitors bullpen is open to the fountain and landscaped area, which is completely unique to the MLB. Watch the video below. If you didn’t know Fernando Rodney was an MLB pitcher, you’d swear he was out for a hike somewhere in Colorado.

Sit in the Purple Seats

There’s a reason Denver is nicknamed the “Mile High City”. In the 300 level, you’ll see a row of purple seats spanning the entire seating area. The purple line marks a mile above sea level. The purple seats are definitely “up there”. There are only about 5 rows of seats that are actually higher than them. It’s a pretty cool photo opp though, so it may be worth the hike.

Coors Field | Transportation and Parking

The official lots at Coors Field are relatively cheap compared to other ballparks. Still, there are better options available nearby. Take some time to research your parking plan before you head to the game. To take some of the stress out of gameday, we recommend reserving a spot early, or planning on public transportation.

Official Coors Field Lots

The official Rockies lots are actually run by another company, Central Parking Systems. There are three lots — A, B, and C, which all open 2.5 hours before first pitch and do not allow tailgating. Lot A costs $19 while B and C are $17. Cash and credit are both accepted on game day, or you can reserve a spot ahead of time from The Rockies here.

Off-Site / Free Parking Options Near Coors Field

There is a ton of off-site parking near the ballpark. There is also street parking available, just be sure to watch for meter limits. Your best bet is probably to use one of the following services which lets you scout out parking and reserve a spot before you arrive.

Public Transportation

Taking public transportation to Coors Field is a great option. You can drive to many of the park and ride stations and take the rail or bus into the ballpark. A day pass is $6, which is far cheaper than most of the parking you’ll be able to find, and you’ll save yourself some of the headache of dealing with traffic. Take the rail to Union Station and you’re only a short walk from Coors Field. RTD has a trip planner you can use to find park and ride stations.

Uber & Lyft

Uber is the official rideshare partner of the Colorado Rockies, but feel free to call Lyft or a cab. The designated rideshare pickup zones are at the corners of 22nd St. & Blake St., and 21st St. & Market.

If you’re new to Uber, you can use this link to get a discount on your first few rides.

Coors Field | Best Seats

Best Seats for Game Views

Coors Field has great site lines from everywhere. Even the upper deck inside the seating bowl feels close to the action. If you’re attending a night game, we recommend sitting on the 1B side in sections 221 – 223. If you happen to be a Wells Fargo account holder, you may be able to utilize a 2-for-1 offer here. These seats will offer great game views, a straight on view of the scoreboard, and a great look at the sunset. You’ll be in the sun for the first inning or two, so be sure to wear your sunscreen and bring some shades. If staying out of the sun is more important than seeing a good sunset, try the same level on the 3B side, which will be shaded first.

Check out the Rockies’ seat finder on their website to see the view from each section.

Where not to Sit

There aren’t any awful obstructions at Coors Field. Just be cognizant of foul poles and your ability to see the scoreboard. The scoreboard is in left center field, since the Rockpile risers are straight away to dead center. The Rockpile is a cool idea (and dirt cheap — like $5), but feels like you’re miles away from the ballgame. If you are there for the game, these are not your seats. The same can be said for the general admission area near the Rooftop bar. As a heads up, there is no alcohol allowed in section 342.

Best Seats for Shade

To stay out of the sun you’ll want to sit on the 3B side and aim for the last few rows of each of the sections. One thing to keep in mind is that since the sun has less atmosphere to cut through, you’ll get burned much faster than normal, so be sure to wear your sunscreen!

Best Seats for Foul Balls

Coors Field is a hitter’s park. Because of the elevation, the ball travels farther than it would at other ballparks, so pay extra attention for foul balls. Even if you are sitting in one of the upper sections, you may be surprised at how often the ball travels up there. According to your best chances for snagging a foul ball at Coors Field are in sections 137-140 on the 3B side, and 121-124 on the 1B side.

Coors Field | Ballpark Food

The Must Have: Rocky Mountain Oysters

If you have to ask what they are, you don’t want to know. But Rocky Mountain Oysters are a classic Denver dish. Find them in section 144.

Something Special: A Dog from Biker Jim’s

Biker Jim’s is a super popular gourmet dog place with a proper location just outside of Coors Field. They also have two stands inside of Coors Park that are wildly successful. The menu isn’t as robust as the Biker Jim’s restaurant, but you can still get a Reindeer Sausage, a Louisiana Red Hot, or a Bacon Cheddar dog. Sections 107 and 331.

The Challenge: The Colorado Queso Stack

Try this huge serving of waffle fries topped with green chilies, pork carnitas, pico, sour cream and jalapenos. Find it in section 305.

Vegetarian and Vegan Options at Coors Field

Biker Jim’s (sections 107 and 331) offer a vegan dog. You’ll also find veggie burgers in sections 120 and 137, along with some salad and wrap offerings. On the club level (200 level), you’ll find Mountain Ranch Bar & Grille, which offers a hummus platter and some salads.

Bars and Restaurants

We believe that in order to fully experience a ballpark, you should spend some time in the nearby area. We’re also big believers that pre and post game rushes are awful. We suggest you spend some time at these local establishments instead of sitting in traffic or rushing to the train.

ViewHouse Ballpark | 2015 Market St, Denver, CO 80205 | Website | Menu | Click to Call
As its name suggests, this restaurant and bar has awesome views of Denver and Coors Field. Go up to their rooftop deck and you’ll find cabanas to hang out with your group in, lawn games and even a volleyball court. Service is friendly and fast, energy is high and the food is delicious. One google review describes this place as “electric” and we think that about sums it up.

Cherry Cricket | 2220 Blake St, Denver, CO 80205 | Website | Menu |Click to Call
Cherry Cricket is a Denver institution and put out some of the best burgers you’ll ever taste. They offer a build-your-own burger menu where you can get all the fixings including your run-of-the-mill toppings and the not-so-normal ones like grilled pineapple, fritos, chicharrones and ancho apricot bbq sauce. They’re more than just burgers though; sandwiches, tex-mex, hot dogs and really good salad options all can be found on their menu.

They have over 70 beers on draft and more than 50 different whiskeys available, all from Colorado!

Giggling Grizzly | 1320 20th St, Denver, CO 80202 | Website | Click to Call
Giggling Grizzly is a hole in the wall type bar and a great one to go to to skip some of the game-day crowds. It’s cozy and rustic, they’re open late and they usually have some really good drink specials. The food menu leaves a little bit to be desired but if you’re okay with bar bites and cheap drinks, you’ll have a great time here.

Local Attractions

If you’re traveling with a family or just trying to make the most out of your trip to the Denver area, here are some recommended nearby attractions.

National Ballpark Museum | Website
You can’t visit Denver and not go to the National Ballpark Museum at least once. It’s chock full of baseball memorabilia, antiques and collections. You can also schedule a personal tour to get a more informative and close-up experience. Any baseball fan will really enjoy this place, and it’s only about a block away from the ballpark. An adult ticket will run you $10 and kids 16 and under are free.

Larimer Square | Website
You can spend an entire day eating, shopping and exploring this beautiful, historic district in downtown Denver. Bistros, art galleries, coffee shops, jewelry stores, boutiques and cocktail lounges abound along the streets of the oldest block in the city. The overhead string lights and the early 20th century architecture give you a charming, small-town feel and you just can’t beat the people watching here.

Downtown Aquarium | Website
This isn’t just any aquarium, the Downtown Aquarium is a full blown adventure. First, see more than a million gallons of underwater exhibits, over 500 species and experience cool interactive tanks, then have dinner in the restaurant that surrounds the aquarium (talk about cool tableside views) and afterwards, grab a nightcap at the Dive Lounge, their fancy first-floor bar. Tickets are pretty pricey at about $24 per adult and around $18 for children, and that’s just to get into the aquarium, but it’s guaranteed to be a memorable time for all.
