Default Astroworld Parking Lot is perfect for tickless tailgating...

Here is a perfect business opportunity for the owners of the Astroworld dirt. If that many ticketless folks want to show and "tailgate" for a Texans game, they are welcome to do exactly that in the Astroworld Lot.

1. The Texans don't have any control over what goes on there.
2. It's HUGE.
3. It's damn close to the real thing.

Can you imagine 100k peeps partying right across 610 from Reliant?

Already happening. Parking will be $20.

They had it on the news when the Texans announced the new policy.

They will need border security guards over there making sure the ticketless people don't cross the line and come into the parking lots illegally.

That property is owned by the interests of the Texans, It is a great place for non ticket holders as it is grass, it is big, only thing is they need to open the bridge unless it is for non ticket holders only

Yep, I heard that the gate on the bridge was locked for the cowgurls game because they didn't want to share proceeds with the Texans.

Yes, as we left after the Cowgirls game we watched people hoisting babies over the fence. It was pretty comical.

They would still have to enter the Reliant lots through valid entry points. Maybe slap a gaurd on the bridge to tell people not to climb the fence.

Or not to pass babies over it. lol

But if the baby makes it over successfully, can the parents lobby to stay in the Reliant lot too? Anchor Fan babies!

Default Re: Astroworld Parking Lot is perfect for tickless tailgating...

I haven't gone to a game in years, but I would love to see a reasonably priced parking lot only area. I remember back in the Oilers days, the parking was somewhere between $5-$7 (don't remember exactly). You paid in cash and there was ample parking. Reliant does not seem to have any reasonable priced parking only lots. All the parking lots seem geared towards tailgaiting. I remember the last time I went to a game there were people walking way down the street to find parking. Some people were parking at grocery stores just to find some decent parking.

If Reliant had a cash lot for parking, they could make a tremendous amount of cash. It astounds me that there is not adequate reasonably priced parking available.

Reliant offers reasonable parking in the Yellow, Orange, Purple, and Maroon lots. Parking starts at $18. Thats not bad if you have 4-5 people, comes out to $4 - $5 per person.

But if you are by yourself or have one person with you, that's still pretty high. I was envisioning $10 a car kind of parking.

Plus don't you have to buy a parking pass to park in the yellow, orange, purple, and maroon lots? I would like to see the return of a $10 cash lot.
