Located in downtown Cincinnati, OH.right on the Ohio River. It's a ballpark with great views and unlike the old Riverfront Stadium/Cinergy Field that was enclosed, Great American Ballpark Cincinnati is open to see the boats and barges floating up and down the river during the game. It's also separated by a couple of parking lots from the Cincinnati Bengals stadium, Paul Brown Stadium. Before and after the game you can also checkout the new Horseshoe Casino that's located in downtown Cincinnati just a mile from the ballpark.

If you're a fan of the Food Network, check out their concession area behind section 133 (1st base/right field area). You can choose from Buffalo Chicken Mac and Cheese, Red Hot Burger, Bacon Sloppy Joe, their signature hot dog or a Cincinnati Hot Dog that's topped with pork rinds and BBQ sauce or build your own with many toppings to choose from.

The Reds have promotional offers for some games, so be on the lookout for those. One of the special offers is for the head of household to pay full price and every other ticket for the rest of the family is ½ price. They have these special prices many times during the season. It's a great deal! If there aren't any specials going on for the game you want to attend, the price of a ticket is still very reasonable. Upper level tickets at Great American Ballpark Cincinnati will cost less the $20.

The least expensive way to purchase tickets is at the stadium box office. You won't have service charges or handling fees if you buy them directly from the team at the box office. Tickets generally go on sale for online purchase in February or March, it just depends on the year. At that tiime you can buy tickets to any game in the regular season. 

I've set up an area on this website where you can get tickets to a game at Great American Ballpark Cincinnati that come from resale inventory, which means someone purchased the tickets in advance and can no longer use them. I have an interactive seating chart to help find the seats you like too. Click on a section then get a picture of what the view looks like from that section. I like to have an idea of what my seat view and sight lines will look like before I go to a game at a ballpark that I haven't been to before. Although it's not a problem with Target Field, some stadiums, like Wrigley Field have a number of I-beams and columns that can get in your way of seeing the game.

Food Options

If the Reds are playing a game against an opponent that they want to fill the stands as much as possible, they’ll have food specials, like $1 hot dogs and $1 soda and as much as you can carry. It’s funny to see groups of college guys carrying a mound of hot dogs back to their seats!

Cincinnati is famous for Skyline chili. And, they have this inside the ballpark. My wife loves it! They also carry UDF (Unified Dairy Farmers) ice cream. If you’re an ice cream lover like me, I seem to always “need” a little of that myself.
