Minute Maid Park is a great place to watch a baseball game—you’re able to see an orange-lugging train and a home run at the same time. The retractable roof offers guests beautiful sunny skies when the weather permits and keeps spectators dry during inclement weather. Even though this stadium has modern accommodations for baseball fans, it was built to commemorate the Union Station entryway, built in 1911.
When you come to watch the Astros take their home field, you better come hungry. If you’re not in the mood for peanuts and crackerjacks, take a bite into the tempting brisket curly fries from Street Eats. Your kids will have a ball at Squeeze Play Park: a fun-zone full of exciting games and activities. Or take a photo with Orbit, one of the MLB's most energetic mascots, but don't forget to show him your Astros pride with your orange and blue gear from the Astros Team Store.
Don't pass up the opportunity to enter the park through the Union Station lobby—it's what inspired the stadium’s unique design in the first place. As an homage to the stadium’s history as Houston’s original Union Station, an active train still runs along the tracks when the Astros get a home run, carrying a cart full of bright oranges.
