Rangers

Planning on attending a Texas Rangers game soon? We’ve got you covered.

Watching a Rangers game at the beautiful Globe Life Field is an experience like no other, but can seem intimidating if you're not prepared. Fortunately, we’ve created a list of the best tips for parking, food, and fun, so you can tackle a game like a pro. 

No matter if you're a new to the Rangers fan base or are a dedicated hard-core fan, these tips are sure to help you get the most out of your experience at Globe Life Field. 

Parking 

There are many parking and ride-share options at the stadium, but it's important to note that all the lots are cashless and tailgating is prohibited. Navigating the parking lots can be stressful, so it’s a good idea to plan for which lot you should  park in. General admission parking ticket prices vary from $15 to $30 depending how far you are willing to walk. 

If you are planning on leaving the stadium directly after the game, consider parking farther away and utilizing the stadium’s shuttle service. Parking farther away will allow you to avoid more of the post-game traffic. A trolley service is also available for guests staying at participating Arlington hotels. Ask your hotel’s front desk concierge to see if you can take advantage of the famous bright red trolley’s free services. 

Drive a Lexus? Be sure to enjoy complimentary parking in the Lexus Lot on the East side of Globe Life Field. This parking is available to anyone driving a Lexus with a dealership issued decal on their windshield. 

Tickets and Entry 

All tickets for Rangers games must be digital, so be sure to download the Texas Rangers App before you head to the game. There are six different points of entry and the app is a great way to find your way around the stadium. Children under 36 inches tall do not require a ticket to enter the stadium. 

It’s important to be aware of the several new safety precautions that the stadium has recently adopted. Outside food is allowed in the stadium, as long as it is sealed in a clear gallon-sized (or smaller) plastic bag. Guests are also permitted to bring one sealed water bottle as well. Handbags are permitted in the park, but cannot exceed 16 inches x 16 inches x 8 inches in size. Keep in mind that all handbags are subject to search. 

Food and beverages

One of the best parts of baseball games is the food. Make sure to come hungry. Globe Life Park has more that 100 concession stand options, offering delicious traditional baseball fare: hotdogs, nachos, popcorn, peanuts, BBQ, and much more. 

If you are worried about eating on a budget, be sure to take advantage of the park’s Coca-Cola Family Packs, Dr. Pepper specials, or the $40 all-you-can-eat tickets which give you access to unlimited hot dogs, nachos, popcorn, and chicken sandwiches along with a great view of the field. The unlimited food deal covers from the time the gates open to two hours after the game ends. 

Be sure to check out some of the park’s newest food items. The Rattler, a rattlesnake sausage with venom sauce, and the Brisket Egg Rolls are two new options that are quickly becoming fan favorites. The Grit Dog, a foot long hot dog with grits, chili, and cheese, is also very popular.
