I go to Kings Island, (and/or Cedar Point) every year, but that's a guys trip. :beerme: The aquarium sounds good, as does the Reds hall a fame. I will try to do both time permiting.
My Brother in law lives in New Albany, (the Indiana side of Louisville) so we are in Louisville 4-5 times a year, and I'm ashamed to say I have never taken my kids to Louisville slugger museum..:confused: We are heading to Louisville for a quick family visit after Cincinnati, on our way to Mammouth Cave, so this might be the time to do it.
Thanks for all the info...I enjoy this forum a lot, Reds fan or not...;).
Heard the opening day ticket lottery starts mid jan and runs till mid feb. Does this sound right? Anyone know for sure?
Reds' fans will welcome Halo fans with open arms. The only time I have ever seen less than classy behavior is when the Cardinals are in town. This game will basically be an All-Star Game with all of the money the Angels just spent.
FYI - The Reds were offering Opening Day tickets for Group Sales. I received the information just after Thanksgiving. A group could purchase Opening Day tickets as long as you purchase 15 -30 tickets to Opening Day & spend the equal amount on other game(s) during the 2013 season. This offer is good through March 16, 2013. I doubt there will be many tickets for the lottery. Processing of these orders began on December 11, 2012. They were available on a first come first serve basis at Redsfest.
Last year the Reds had a package of 13 games or so that included Opening Day. Any word if that will be available. That worked out well.
In the past opening day tickets have been offered as part of the "Power Pack" promotion which is a package of about 10 premium games during the season....most on weekends, some midweek bobblehead games as well.
This was my package of choice until they started packaging entire weekend series as part of the 10 games and just couldnt swing the finances of staying in Cincinnati over an entire weekend.
FYI...this is usually offered sometime next month.
My beef with the Reds ticket policies has always been that I now buy a larger package than this (Bakers Dozen Saturdays 13 games) and have no access to Opening Day.
Ah well, I'll still be there one way or another
I'll be at opening day no matter what, we are staying at the Garfield Suites with the family. I am hoping we get the same warm welcome we've received in other city's. The only bad experience I have ever had was in Detroit, (go figure) I was lucky enough to have my tickets fall on Weaver - Verlander at Commerica. We also had front row seat, just off the third base side. A few Detroit fans were rude and yelled at us, even though I was with my then, 5 year old boy, and 7 year old girl. In fact, only at one point did any fan welcome us to Detroit. We have been to most of the midwests parks to see our Halos and everyone has been friendly and welcoming....Even at Wrigley and The Cell.
- What are good, and not outrageous places to eat Downtown? I've heard Madonna bar and grill is decent and cheap. - What is the best place for pizza downtown? - What will the Moerlein Lager House, be like for opening day? They take reservations 30 days in advance, and I was thinking of going there for lunch before the game. Will they honor reservations for this day?
Thanks for all the info guys. Everyone I have mentioned this too, (I live in Indiana) tells me Reds opening day is the best in the bigs....I am very excited.
You should be treated well at GABP
I am sure you will be welcomed to Cincinnati, just don't get too sad when the Reds win! :)
Still waiting on word for the tickey lottery for opening day. Come on Reds.com. Anyone hear any news?
