Go Mariners!! 6/22/2010

While I don't go to a ton of baseball fields I feel like this must be one of the nicer ones around. Strangely located right next to Seattle's other large sports arena, Qwest field, makes for many parking opportunities and fills out the seattle skyline nicely. The field and stadium are nicely kept up with many helpful staff helping to make your experience more pleasant. There are tons of great food options including grounders, Ivars, Kidd Valley, even a natural place for veggie food. I love garlic fries from grounders and have to have them everytime I come. I really like that their is a nice kids play area at the stadium so that parents with unruly children can get them out of the stands for awhile. Its also nice to be able to look down and watch the pitchers practice and since it is seattle the retractable roof makes baseball tolerable any time of the year (might want to bring a blanket). Pros: lots of food options, retractable roof, children's play area more

A beautiful park but..... 5/8/2008

You're not aloud to actually cheer for your team here. The park policies are ridiculous. They expect all fans to remain firmly seated for the duration of the contest, no matter if it's a critical point in the game when the crowd should be excited and encouraging their team. The cause is a subdued atmosphere which is a real bummer. I went to opening day in 2007 and predicted correctly that the loudest point in the game would take place during the simulated hydroplane race shown on the big screen, never mind Sexton's go-ahead homerun. By all means, this is a splendid park deserving of better from its managment and their policies. In the Kingdome, at least we were aloud to be good fans. Pros: great views (especially in the 100 level concessions, a gem of a park Cons: fans discouraged to cheer by zealous ushers, sell some plasma pregame to afford the concessions more

What a way to experience a baseball game! 4/3/2007

Now, I'll be the first to admit that I was sooo unhappy to see the Kingdome go... It was just an old classic icon of Seattle. I didn't want to see it leave and I didn't want any part of the replacement. I didn't go to Safeco for the first year or so after it was built, but brother... When I finally did walk in, I was in love! This stadium just has that great classic baseball stadium feel! It really seems true that there aren't bad seats in the house! The views are great, the retractable roof makes weather always tolerable (except for the cold, you're on your own on that part), and I really don't think the concessions are so ridiculously expensive. They aren't cheap, by any means, but who goes to a baseball game and expects them to be? I don't go to the movies and expect grocery prices for my food either. There's some really tasty eats inside from the garlic fries that have been mentioned, to some delicious pasta and foods I wouldn't necessarily expect at a ballpark. \r \r All that said, it's true that parking can be an awful experience. I'll always come early and expect a walk. You can park close, but I'd rather not pay exorbitant prices for parking when I've got perfectly good legs (and can use the workout prior to the foods that I'm about to eat). Also, my dad had season tickets for years and I'd use his tickets sometimes that came with a parking pass for the attached garage. The ramp they added that shoots straight to the freeway is fantastic! Either pay up for parking or drive out aways. I typically park by the Sodo building (Sears) and just walk. Pros: It's a great experience! A must-see if you're visiting during the season! Cons: Parking takes a little work or a little ""know-how"" more

Great MLB Experience! 3/20/2007

Absolutely great place to watch a major league ballgame from early July on! As a native Californian evening games tend to be too cold for me early in the year. Friends that were out from Boston last year would trade Fenway for The Safe in a heartbeat. I've been to all the west coast MLB stadiums plus Coors, Kauffman stadium & BOB and I haven't been to one yet that has anything on Safeco Field! How else could the M's draw the 6th best attendance in baseball last year with a team that's finished dead last in the AL West for three consecutive years? Pros: The whole package Cons: Lou's not here anymore! more

Nice Stadium 11/20/2006

Safeco is a very nice stadium. I didnt used to believe the statement that there isn't a bad seat in the house...but, it is true. You can see pretty well from anywhere. I especially like the retractable roof feature...it's great to be able to see the beautiful sky during the day, sunset, or at night...and it's nice that the roof can be closed so that you don't get rained upon...which happens a lot in Seattle. Pros: Great stadium, good seats Cons: parking is fun to find, but that's normal for any stadium more

Safco Field, a must see! 3/30/2006

There is not a bad seat in the place! Parking is good, parking garage on the south side with walk way to the stadium. Other parking across the street or private ($2-$5.00) for the event. Concessions, good food from Oriental to BBQ. The best for us natives who know it rains here is the sliding roof. It will cover the stadium in about 5 minutes! Great seats from first to top level! Even the outfield seats are great! Pros: Views of field, Clean!, Concessions Cons: Can be cold more

Not a bad seat in the house! 7/13/2005

Safeco Field had to be one of, if not, the best baseball stadium in the US. There really isn't a bad seat in the house. You feel as close to field on the 300 level as you would on the 100 level. Rainouts? No problem! The retractable roof lets you enjoy the game rain or shine. I recommend bringing your own food to the game (you are allowed to bring food, but not drinks into the stadium), as concessions can be pricey. Parking isn't so great either. Overall -- a great place to watch a game and soak up the atmosphere. Pros: No Bad Seats, Atmosphere, Retractable Roof Cons: Concession Prices, Parking more

Overrated Generic 90's with poor views. 5/29/2005

""The Safe"" (how apt is 90's Restoration Hardware version of what a ballpark should be with a gratuittous tin roof. It should have been on lot lot north of the Kingdome, not south of it. The Mariners wanted it way south to trap more concession money. Inconvenieint by design. Parking--Please! Instead of a lasting original statement like the Space Needle, we got another Hammering Man, instead of art, a franchise location. Instead of a great view of the skyline or the bay, we got the backside of a football stadium. The roof is just dumb. Pros: Downtown, Clean Cons: Too far south, Unoriginal more

Break Out the Rye Bread and Mustard Grandma... 4/6/2005

This stadium is a GRAND SALAMI! I have been to a few of the newer stadiums (SBC Park in S.F., Minute Maid Park in Houston) and I have never felt so close to the action as I have at the Safe! Great concessions, great fans, and a great ball club! more

A little piece of heaven.. 4/6/2005

Safeco has become so much more than a venue to all of us diehard M's fans. It's home to some of the most amazing sunsets and summer nights, awesome food, and the best team and fans in the world. The feeling you get while taking it all in is this unbelievable high and there's no place I personally would rather be to watch baseball than Safeco Field, my home away from home. Pros: Fanbase, Food, Atmosphere more

The bullpen! 4/6/2005

Might have missed it but did not see a comment about the bullpen. Nowhere else that I know of can you get THAT close to the speeding pitches as they warm up. From every angle too! You can stand behind the catcher and watch the ball coming at you (from behind a sturdy chainlink fence of course). Went to a game with my son when he graduated UW-Law and WOW what a place to watch baseball. In Mpls-St. Paul we're stuck with a dome almost as bad as the Kingdome was. My instant impression was ""when can the Twins have a home like this?"" I might even go see them then. Pros: Atmosphrere, Outdoors/covered, Views of field Cons: Parking, Wet stairs, Concession prices more

Atmosphere 3/16/2004

The one thing that people have not touched on is the atmosphere. It is more than a baseball game, it is an event. I am not a baseball fan, and I attended over 10 games a season. There is really something for everyone- from the video boards, the music, interactive games, etc. Go experience the MOJO!!! more

Gem of MLB 9/7/2003

A beautiful ballpark that harkens back to the old days of baseball, yet completely shows it is 21st century Seattle. If your military or retired military try parking at the Coast Guard Base. Free and short walk to stadium. Pros: Views, accessibility, all weather Cons: prices of concessions more

Great Stadium 9/2/2003

SafeCo is a great place to watch a baseball game. I sat in two different levels and both had excellent views of the game, as well as a fabulous view of downtown from behind first base. You can walk around the entire stadium on the field level which gives you the intimate feel of being at a minor league stadium. Easy access to concessions ( food, drink and souveniers ) without long lines. Two suggestions....I stayed downtown and caught the bus (free) to Union Station just a few blocks from the left field entrance. On the way there are people selling the treats that you pay alot more for once you get inside ( a package of kettle korn and peanuts can be had for under $5.00 outside and they let you bring it into the stadium ) also shop the vendors for deals on tee shirts, etc.). more

Love The Stadium 8/17/2003

The field is awesome, the vantage points throughout the stadium are all good, and of course, you've got the Mariners playing there... It's just an excellent place to watch a game. Now the downside... Parking; I think we would've drove around for another 30-40 minutes had we not happened accross a small lot by a gas station accross from the left-field wall... with the price you pay to see baseball, parking should be simple and free. The other knock I have is the prices of food and drinks there, good lord people, I should get change from a twenty if I grab 2 dogs and 2 beers...ticket prices are high enough, the players are making millions! Lower the rent for the vendors, or whatever you have to do to bring down those concession prices, make parking a snap, and I'de love to make more trips to such a beautiful park! Pros: Good Views, Beutiful Field, Clean Environment Cons: Parking, Concession Prices more

parking 7/25/2003

The parking really sucks unless you're atleast 2hrs. early you're driving around for a half hour, or you are walking that long. Pros: scenery, affordable, friendly employees Cons: parking, construction, parking more

Beauty 5/3/2003

One of the best stadiums I've ever been in. Classic features, high-tech sliding roof. Great sushi!!! more

Baseball at it's best 3/19/2003

A classic stadium modernized. A sunny day at the Safe cannot be beat if you're a baseball fan! Pros: Mariners baseball, retractable roof more

Safeco Field 2/15/2003

One of the few things my husband and I have in common is Baseball. We never attended Mariners games until Safeco was built. Now we include tickets, parking and concessions as part of our monthly budget during baseball season. We love it! It isn't just great baseball with the Mariners that brings us back over and over, but the whole experience that Safeco Field offers as a premier venue. more
