So I'm officially making my first trip to Arlington here in June. I will be going to the June 9th and 10th games against the Blue Jays and the June 12th and 13th games against the Dodgers. I'm pretty damn pumped up. I've been a Rangers fan for over 15 years now and have always had to watch them on TV or as a visiting fan in the Colisseum before.
Here are my questions for you locals. I'm planning on going to Six Flags on the 11th and to the Hurricane Harbor during the day before one of the games. I've noticed they sell tickets for the kids price if you buy them on line at their site. I think around $30 for Six Flags and $20 for the water park. My question is are these two places worth checking out? Anyone know of any other deals (i.e. I can get cheap tickets for a park here in Utah at Costco) for those parks or any other places to visit? What other sites should I check out while I'm in town? Museums (I'm a history buff), hot spots, et al. I'm definitely going to be renting a car so I figure anything within an hour or so of Arlington is fair game.
I have an ex-coworker that should be hooking me up with tickets, but hasn't come through yet. I'm pretty sure she will, but just in case she doesn't, what is the best way to buy tickets there? Just at the gates before the games? My only fear is that if the Rangers keep playing as well as they have been that there will be fewer seats available. I don't expect those games to sell out, but I certainly don't want to be stuck in the nose bleed sections either. I know there have been a couple fan posts in the past that people suggest sections 230-236 (?) as good seats. Any other seating suggestions? Also, where is the best place to buy Rangers memorabilia? I think I'll need to stock up while I'm there.
So if any of you LSBers are going to be at those games and you see some 30 year old guy walking around with his U of U gear on next to a guy wearing a SF Giants hat, that would be me and my father. Damn I'm excited. Finally a trip to RBiA.
