Default Wait List for reserved Lot Parking?

Question for someone more knowledgable than me. Does a wait list exist for the gold and green reserved parking lots? When I contacted Alco last year they told me via email that "these lots are passed down through generations and do not become available, ever". While I don't doubt that they may often be passed on, there has to be some way to obtain one of the ones that get released by the prior owner. I see people mentioning eBay but I want the rights to the parking passes year after year. We have two little kids with us and we try and minimize the walking to the Stadium if at all possible.

We have parked/tailgated off of Ridge Ave in some private parking lots (across from the green lots) a few times and really had a good time. Just looking for something more permanent I guess.

This will be our first season as seat license/season ticket owners. Can't wait.

Thanks in advance for anyone's input

There is no waiting list. I called Alco a couple of years ago when I bought my PSL's and they said you should just check their website in the spring. There's never anything desirable on there. There is some blue lots for $430/season, but blue is far away. Gold will never come available. I've never seen a red or green either and I checked pretty diligently for a while. I just got a casino parking offer for $200/season, which is close. But that won't work with the kids. They state right on the letter everyone in the car must be 21.

Yeah I got that parking over from Rivers Casino as well. It wouldn't work for me because of the age restriction and the fact that you can't bring BBQ's with you. Tailgating to me is half the fun of football.

The blue lots are too far away for my liking. I've been watching Alco's website closely. My ideal spot would be in Green 22 since it's close to the bathroom in the Wendy's up there.

That Casino parking thing bugged me. That is such a niche market they are shooting for IMHO. Everyone in the car must be 21 or older, no outside alcohol, no BBQ's. The price was right though if you fit into their "parking demographic".

I think the age restriction is a legal thing for casino property.
