Default First time game help?

So me and my family are thinking about going to the Ravens game this season. But we are unsure of what seats to get? Of cource we want the best seats, but i have a question about the 600's section(gridiron midfield) of seats. Are you able to see the players well and know what's going on?

Also how early should i get there before the game starts? And how much are parking tickets? We don't plan on tailgaiting btw.

I've always loved the Bullpen the most. It's in the end zone. It has the most hardcore and rowdy fans that love to cheer, stand up, and be that extra member of the team. You can't go wrong in the Bullpen man.

I highly suggest you reconsider the bolded! Texans games are WORLD CLASS tailgating.

There really isn't a bad seat in Reliant, some are just better than others. It is a well designed stadium.

Even if you aren't tailgating, you should try and be at the stadium and parked by 10:30 at the latest. And if you are planning on tailgating, 9 at the latest. Park, and walk around and take in the sights. The various tailgates are fun to walk by. Go into Budweiser Plaza, grab a beer, check out the GoTexans store. There is a band and entertainment. Gameday is more than the football game, check it all out. You will see why so many of us spend so much time and money each fall to be part of the experience.

We leave the parking lot around 11:15 for our seats and there is a huge backlog of cars trying to park at that time. If you leave it too late, the traffic will be horrible and you will miss the start time.

And do you know the parking lots and their prices? We will probally walk around Reliant and look around before the game starts now.

All of the Texans parking lots are presold passes. No cash lots. You can look on ebay or here for a parking pass. They vary from $18 for yellow up to $45+ for platinum.

There are private cash lots around the stadium. I am not sure what they will run this year. You used to be able to park at the Holiday Inn on the corner of Kirby and 610 for $20, but they went up to $30 by the end of the season. There are some cash lots on the south side of 610. Get there early and look around if you don't find a parking pass beforehand.

What Glass said. There are also quite a few places along Main near the intersection with McNee which are private lots and typically go for $20 and the bicycle rickshaw will come pick you up.

I doubt you can buy a parking pass from the Texans at this point. I am pretty sure they are all sold out. You will need to buy a pass for that game from an individual reselling on ebay or stubhub or here.
