  • In Loving Tribute To My Minnesota Twins

    Nov 29, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Weather doesn't influence whether to see a game or not.
    Cons: TC Cap off, on my left breast in loving support of my team.

    Summary: I finally made it to my first Twins game in May. I'm glad I found the time. As long as I can remember, I have been a Twins fan. Sometimes I was hanging my head low, and other times I was jumping for joy and watching parties in the streets of ... read more

  • Have Dome, Will Travel

    Dec 12, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easily accessible via the lightrail, loud and full of energy. Good food to be had.
    Cons: Dated appearance, food and souvenirs are pricey.

    Summary: I recently attended my first NFL game! Minnesota Vikings vs. Oakland Raiders, in Minnesota. This event was held, of course, in the Metrodome. It was my first time in a professional sports arena, so forgive me if I sound a little awestruck or am unable ... read more

  • The atmosphere

    Jun 20, 2007 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: ticket price, baseball team, fans, loud factor, and of course dome dogs
    Cons: out dated, not designed for baseball, and baseball parking

    Summary: Alright lets face it the dome is old but people don't go to a ball game for that. Every time I walk into the actual dome where you can see the field your in the game. Who cares in the food isn't that good. Its part of the atmosphere. Sure your not ... read more

  • Worst Stadium in all of MLB

    Nov 14, 2004 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Home of one of the BEST MLB teams EVER. Roof keeps out SNOW.
    Cons: Sterile, bland, just like anything Scandanavian. Crappy 3.2 beer, lousy location

    Summary: I had to suffer watching my FAVORITE sport in this #$%! plastic, sterile bubble that was really made for the NFL MN Vikings. The places just sucks beyond comprehension and you can't even get a real beer in the place; only that other stupid bastion of ... read more

  • The Metrodome endures, but only endures.

    May 24, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Protection from harsh climate. Its paid for. Light rail link.
    Cons: Cold, sterile feel.Sightlines for baseball. Very long rows of seats. PA system. Drab location.

    Summary: I have visited the Metrodome numerous times, most frequently for Minnesota Twins baseball games. The Metrodome lives on as a concrete and steel monument to multi-purpose stadiums everywhere – of which there are very few remaining. The sterile, cold ... read more

  • Great for football, bad for parking

    May 18, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Indoors for those frosty MN winter days
    Cons: poor sight for baseball, is in downtown Minneapolis

    Summary: I have been to the metrodome for numerous events, Twins, Vikes, and Monster Truck races. It is marginal for Twins games, the sight lines are poor and to sit inside during the summer in Minnesota just makes it not worth the time to go to the game. It is ... read more

  • The Big white Bubble

    Apr 27, 2003 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: It provides the greatest home field advantage for the Vikings, and Twins.
    Cons: It looks like a bubble

    Summary: The Big white bubble is the home of the Minnesota Vikings, as well as the Twins, and football Gophers. When it was resurrected it was obviously built for football, because you might as well watch baseball on tv, you have a better seat in front of ... read more

  • If you can't say something nice...

    Jan 27, 2003 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Well, it IS baseball, and near downtown.
    Cons: THE WORST stadium in the game.

    Summary: This is the worst stadium in baseball - PERIOD. Long aisles (excuse me, excuse me, sorry, excuse me, sorry, excuse me, excuse me, excuse me, excuse me, sorry, excuse me, sorry, excuse me, excuse me), lousy sight lines, and IT IS NOT POSSIBLE to ... read more

  • Sometimes you think that they DO need a stadium

    Feb 3, 2002 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Are there any?
    Cons: Where can I start?

    Summary: I've seen maybe 12 Twins games at the Metrodome, I've never been to a Vikings game, my review here is as simple as good and bad... Good: The food isn't bad, opposing teams occasionally lose the ball in the roof (that's more funny than good), ... read more

  • Hometown baseball, close up.

    Dec 26, 2001 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Seating isn't much of a problem.
    Cons: Apparently not the best baseball atmosphere. (But I like it.)

    Summary: I haven't been to that many stadiums. I know a lot of people really don't like the Metrodome, but since I'm too far to drive to Milwaukee or Chicago twice a week to see baseball games the dome will have to do. I'm a big Twins fan, but I really hate the ... read more

  • Can Sports and Intelligence Coexist?

    Jul 9, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: The Twins are in First Place.
    Cons: My mind feels empty.

    Summary: Once, in college while I still had the freedom to do so, I was sitting in Perkins at about 3 AM and I compiled a list. The list was going to change my life. It was entitled, “Things that keep me stupid” and it was just that, things that I believed that ... read more

  • Not that bad really, but...

    Jul 8, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: It's really not as bad as its reputation suggests. Twins games are really cheap!
    Cons: It wasn't designed for baseball. Not enough restrooms. It's a boring place.

    Summary: I've seen many baseball games in the H.H.H. metrodome, and one football game. I've also been to a few other ball parks. I have fond memories of watching games in the metrodome. It has a very simple design, but unfortunately it's really a football stadium ... read more

  • It could be better

    Dec 30, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: one of the noisiest
    Cons: no leg room

    Summary: Well, as someone who has been to quite a few arenas across the country, all I can say is that the Metrodome is not quite that good as a football venue. As far as stadiums are concerned, the Metrodome is considered "ancient." There is virtually ... read more

  • First Time and I'm Ready to Return

    Dec 1, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Can see the whole field, the whole time.
    Cons: Loud, and food is expensive.

    Summary: Last night (11-30-00), I experienced my first NFL football game, and it took place at the Minneapolis Metrodome. Maybe I'm not the person to be reviewing this place, due to my lack of experience with an array of sporting facilities, but I feel that I ... read more

  • Metromonstrosity.... The mistake by 10,000 lakes!

    Aug 29, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: It won't last forever
    Cons: Somebody built it in the first place!

    Summary: I never thought there would be a great place for a nuclear bomb to explode until I visited the Metromonstrosity in Minneapolis! This mistake by 10,000 lakes is a monument to concrete and synthetics gone mad! I can't BELIEVE some misguided soul gave this ... read more

  • You call this a place to see a game?

    Aug 17, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Price - but only for baseball
    Cons: everything else

    Summary: This past weekend I went to a Twins game at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome. I did not like the dome for a baseball game, but it looked liked it might be ok for a football game. Hopefully for Minnesota they will get a new baseball park like they need. ... read more

  • The Metrodome

    Aug 16, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Price
    Cons: everything else

    Summary: While I was in Minneapolis this last weekend I went to a Twins game at the Metro Dome. (This was the only way that I could get my fiancé to spend his whole day at The Mall of America Shopping). All I can say is that I went and saw a game. The dome is ... read more

  • Hubert's Astroturf Tent

    Jun 23, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: cheap tickets, hot dogs
    Cons: Just plain wrong for professional sports.

    Summary: I thought Minnesota folks might defend the Metrodome here on Epinions. Hah! To paraphrase Garrison Keilor, the Metrodome strikes this one-time visitor as something renovations can not change and the decades can not improve. It is truly ... read more

  • WHAT A DUMP!!!!!

    Jun 20, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Price
    Cons: Parking, Food, Aesthetics

    Summary: This stadium is terrible. The face value of the tickets isn't bad but that is because the minnnesota twins haven't been good for 12 years! The stadium is ugly with it's astroturf field and it's "baggy" out in right field. It is hard to play on ... read more

  • Dome Sweet Dome

    Jun 2, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: great food, great games
    Cons: indoor facility takes away from the ballgame atmosphere

    Summary: There has been a lot of criticism lately of the Hubert H. Humphry Metrodome. Well, I think that the metrodome is a great sporting venue. Sure it has it flaws, but what doesn't? The Twins and Vikings complain that they can't compete in the dome - you ... read more
