Default Game info

I'm going to my first game and had a few questions. When do the gates open? Also, I was thinking of parking at station square and taking the boat over to the stadium. I was wonder if anyone had any info on when the boat runs and if they make continuous trips back and forth.

Stadium opens 2 hours before KO. And the Ferry starts running about 4 hours prior to KO.

The only problem I have with the ferry is you're at the mercy of everyone else. Meaning you have to wait until the boat is full b4 they leave. If you're driving home, it's fine but if you're coming in from out of town and have to catch a flight, don't do it.

Also, be sure to go in through gate A. That's the gate that's under the Jumbotron. Since you've never been you may want to go so the stadium a bit early to look around inside b4 it gets too crowded.

And dont' miss the Great Hall. Plus you can get really close to the field from the great hall level b4 the game starts. A lot of stadiums won't let you enter the field level seats section but they're pretty cool at heinz. You'll get a lot of great photo ops there.

I took these during warmups last week. BTW, what game are you going to?

Eight of us are coming in from Hampton Roads, VA for the Seattle game and we're looking for an "open" tailgate party... Is there such a thing? It's our first game at Heinz Field too. Been to alot of games at Three Rivers Stadium as a kid, but never to one at Heinz Field.
