Minute Maid Park, with its cutting-edge technology and classic architecture, opened in 2000. The $248 million facility has a retractable roof and 50,000 square feet of glass in the west wall of the roof that provides the fans a view of the Houston skyline, even when closed. Seats along the right-field and left-field lines are five feet from the line. Natural Bermuda grass covers the 2.5-acre playing surface.
Soak up the scene:
This retractable roof stadium in downtown Houston has been nicknamed the Juice Box, but trains are the theme. Fans enter through the refurbished Union Station and a replica locomotive runs on a track above left field. Also, fans can now take a light rail line to the game, although this is Houston so most are driving. For more on the Minute Maid Park experience, including a game-day itinerary, visit Wise Guides.
