Take the family out to the ball game to see the Rockies and meet the purple dino, Dinger, the Rockies' mascot.
Even if you aren't much of a baseball fan, Coors Field offers a family friendly venue to enjoy "America's pastime"... The Rockies mascot Digger is a favorite of many kiddos and the baseball games are interspersed with plenty of entertainment to keep everyone amused. If you need a break from the game action, there are plenty of baseball-oriented activities, concessions, souvenir stands, and even a small playground along the concourse. If you're looking for a kid-friendly meal, don't miss Buckaroo's concession stand with kid-sized portions of all the favorite baseball fare!
Watching baseball is great, but watching it while looking at the mountains? Even greater! It is a fun experience to be able to enjoy the game while being outside in the beauty of Colorado. There is great seating and you can get cheap tickets through King Soopers grocery store. You can also go to the rock pile and save some money.
Taking the kids to a Rockies game is so much fun no matter where your seats are. There is always something going on (and the game, of course) to keep young ones entertained in some manner or another. Food is high priced, of course, but you can bring in coolers with food to keep the kids happy. A wonderful experience.
Coors field is a great family friendly place to see a baseball game, and what kid doesn't like going to a baseball game. But the secret to a really great game experience in Denver occurs during the third inning. So, during the bottom of the second, take your kids for a walk to the first level concourse, right center field. And at the top of the third, Dinger (the Colorado Rockies purple dinosaur mascot) shows up for FREE picture taking. Parents are encouraged to have their cameras ready, and will even be position to get the best picture possible. Snap your picture, a Rockies photographer will also snap a couple and then Dinger will sign a Dinger card (a 4x6 baseball card of the mascot) for your kids. We have been to several games and this is the highlight of each and every trip for my daughter. On our last trip, she decided to let Dinger sign her new purple snow boots (the people helping Dinger politely ask for parent permission before signing kids or their clothes).
Don't forget to get the website card before walking away, even if you took your own pictures, kids love going on the computer and seeing their picture posted to a website.
This is a great newer ballpark for families. Besides the obvious entertainment of seeing the game, there is a wonderful family play area to give the kids their own seventh inning strech. Parking can be tough to find and expensive. There are many resturants to eat at before or after the game. The tour of the park is very interesting as well as you get to go to many parts of the stadium that most people, other than the players, never get to see such as the locker room, field, workout facilities, private suites and etc.
