Default Re: Anyone making the trip to KC?

So my wife and I decided to surprise my son with tickets to the Texans game in KC. The game falls on the day of his birthday, he doesn't know that we're going to the game he thinks were just going for a family vacation.

Now you guys have all listed plenty of bars/clubs for adults to go out and have a good time. Do you guys think you can give me some suggestions as to what KC has to offer for families? Theme parks, museums, recreation areas? Anything that a 8 year old would enjoy. The plan is to go out and explore KC all day Saturday.
Also, what hotels in what part of town would you all suggest are family friendly.

Thank y'all for the advice and suggestions

And we would definitely like to take part in the group picture, and tailgating!! Look forward to meeting some of y'all out there!!!

We'll be staying at the Holiday Inn Key Sports Complex across the street from Arrowhead. It has a water park and appears to be very kid friendly. My friend from Iowa is meeting me there and she is bringing a friend who has two kids. I think their ages are 8 and 10. We have one parking pass but trying to coordinate with everyone else so we can get a tailgating group together. You and your wife are definitely welcome to join in. Right now we plan to meet in front of the Holiday Inn and go in as a group. I'll know more a little later on, plans are still in the works. Feel free to PM me or contact me here. I'll keep looking at this thread.

Thank you for the information, I looked into it and that hotel looks as if its a great pick! Also if you book now it'll save you about 50 bucks so I'll be setting my reservation soon. Thank you for the tailgate invite, will definitely take you up on that. Thanks again, I'll keep checking for more info

I'll be with a group of 16. Can't promise all of them will be Texans fans, but a good portion of them will be. Some of our friends, naturally, are Cheifs fans since we do live in KC. We'll be tailgating, though I don't know which lot yet. If you have a family with people too young to drink/too old to drink past 9, staying in the area of Arrowhead would be ok. Otherwise, there is pretty much nothing to do. If you've got a family/group and you want to actually go out and explore the KC nightlife, Plaza or Downtown are your best bets. Plaza will give you more shopping/eating options during the day and is a quick cab ride to Westport (a pretty happening bar district). If you want something more chill, head north about 5 miles to Waldo. Cab drivers will know what you want.

My group will be aged 22ish - 32ish. Our plan is to meet at a hotel near the stadium to drop cars and organize ourselves into a few tailgating friendly vehicles. We'll leave the extra cars at the hotel and head to the stadium from there. Texans fans are welcome to join, but seriously, don't expect enthusiasm before a coffee and bloody mary. If anyone wants to tag along/form a semi-organized tailgate we can set up a meeting spot at a hotel and caravan from there so we're in the same area.

Default Re: Anyone making the trip to KC?

Alright. After consulting with my insider source (college drinking buddy and close friend) who works for the Chiefs, I've been told gates open at 10:30am even though the kickoff is pushed back. He also advised that we enter through GATE 5 though he said it didn't matter which lot once in. He said that's the gate that gets rowdy and has a lot of visitors. He also said they're expecting a lot of Texans fans.
