Seriously, what's up with it? I am thinking about flying out for a game and I see these things are for sale on-line at various places. What exactly does the RED parking pass get you, where can you park with the thing? Is the RED pass worth investing in? I know it doesn't get you free beer and a date with miss America, so what the hell? :hmmm:

Gets you between the stadiums-easy to copy.

So you can just haul ass and park any place between the stadiums if you have the golden boy coveted RED pass?

You can redeem it for a pair of thundersticks at the George Brett statue.

Just as long as your wife wears a red binkini

Yep-my friend is handicap so he gets them-we copy it and use it too. You still have to pay $20 parking to get in though.

Last couple of years they put a arrowhead hologram on the pass-so you just zacto knife it out of the old pass and use it for the following week-works everytime.

That pass is the biggest crock of shit at Arrowhead, IMO.

I'll spare you the details about how season ticket holders aren't guaranteed at least one pass........

Broker have pushed this thing out of control. Face value is $25. It's next to impossible to get one for under $40, and I've seen them listed for as high as $60. Granted, you'd have to be a fuggin idiot to pay $60 to park, (or even $40, IMO) but people do it.

All the pass does is gives you an opportunity to park closer to the stadium. The earlier you arrive, the better your spot will be.

If you can get one for $25, get it. Otherwise, pay $20 to park in the cash lot if you want to tailgate, or park over at the Clarion for $10 and walk over the highway to the lots.....

And BTW, passes are being scanned electronically now. Should cut down on counterfeiting......

Between the K and Arrowhead requires a Gold pass.....even more expensive.....


Gold lots are M and E

Red lots are A-D and F-J

Cash lots are L, and I've paid cash before and parked in the very back of G.....not sure if other Red lots are the same.....

Dude, some places in the far cash lots will rip the f#ck out of the bottom of your car! Going over the drive into the grass, you do it wrong in this one spot, you can high center you ride

I was mistaken it is a Gold pass we use-we always park in M lot. Plenty of room to play catch and a great tailgate spot.

We walk about 100 yards or less to get in the stadium.

Any area that has grass doesn't require a pass. You can basically be parked in a Red lot without needing a pass just by parking on the grass medians.

Anything over the normal $20 to get in is a waste of money IMO.

Not anymore. We arrived Saturday to discover we could no longer park at B5 (we've been parking in the same spot for over 10 years now) because the bastiges fenced off the first 3 rows of lot B for Gold level parking.

DAMMIT, CARL!! :cuss:

DAMMIT, CARL!! :cuss:Wow, that sucks. How much further back was the next pole? Or did you just choose to not use a pole as your landmark?

What makes B5 so nice is that the light pole is right in the middle of the parking spot (width-wise) but is not centered between the spots. So it makes one very long parking spot which is perfect for my friend's 1-ton dually crew cab truck.

Hey since the parking NAZI's got you guys you should move to where me and Stevie Ray are tailgating. That would be cool. You guys are already directly across across the street from Stevie Ray arn't you? We'd have the whole outside row locked down from the stadium back 60 yards or so.

Clarion for $10 (redeem coupon for $5 in gift shop or bar).
Walk across with cheap cooler or beer box.

Snake out the back way from Clarion while other sit in traffic.

We'll probably stay as close as we can to B5. We have friends that drop by when they occasionally get tickets and they wouldn't know where to find us if we move to a different lot.

Thanks for the offer though.
