    We don't have a parking pass. Coming from Beaumont direction. Where's the best place to park? What's it gonna cost to ride the train in? We're shooting for being in the tailgate area around noon!

    ANY HELP WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!

    you can normally park at the hotel right there on 610 and there are other lots right next to the stadium.

    For the hotels be sure to get there pretty early. They will probably full up quick with all the people coming who haven't been before, especially out of town Bengals fans. and they won't be cheap. Not sure what they'd charge for a playoff game, but make sure you have enough cash. I'd wager they'll be minimum $30, possibly more.

    unfortunately, it's kind of last minute to acquire a pass. Cheapest I just saw was $55 for yellow at ticket exchange, and only one at that price.

    I'm not looking for a pass at this point. Didn't think about trying to get one, or I could've earlier--between now and Christmas. It's cool. I'm just trying to figure out the best place to park. I'm cool with riding the train in. We've ridden the one down past Sam's Club before. Don't remember that much about it though.

    There's also the Fannin South Park & Ride just south of 610 @ W. Bellfort.

    $10 for parking.

    Free Metro Rail for the day (due to the game).

    Best for Maroon & Orange Lot.
    Not too bad for Blue Lot.

    You can google Fannin South Park & Ride if the following link doesn't work.

    Good luck!

    I sometimes do the hotel at 610 and kirby on the corner. It's usually 20 bucks but they might bump it up for the game. It ain't a bad walk, maybe 7-10 minutes or so.

    Awesome! Thanks 76. Pretty sure that's the rail we rode last time we went.

    Riding the train ain't bad, but remember that the further north you park, the easier it is to get on a train and the cheaper the parking. Downtown is usually 5-10 bucks to park, but it might be more due to the playoffs.

    Hey, you really can walk from Fannin South to Reliant.
    To find the way back after tailgating is another matter. :gamer:
