Wichita Wind Surge Baseball Games Tips and Deals

What is the Wichita Wind Surge? They are a minor league baseball team and the Double-A affiliate of the Minnesota Twins. They play at the Riverfront Stadium in downtown Wichita, KS. 

Going to a baseball game can be a blast without breaking the bank for a few reasons. First off, compared to some other live events, tickets are often more affordable, especially if you opt for seats in the outfield or upper levels. Plus, the Wind Surge has some great promotions and discount days, making it even easier on the wallet.

Then there’s the atmosphere. The energy of a live baseball game, the sounds of the crowd, the crack of the bat—it’s an experience that’s hard to replicate. Even if you’re not a die-hard fan, the social aspect can make it a great outing with friends or family.

And let’s not forget about the food. While some sporting events can charge an arm and a leg for snacks, baseball stadiums often have a variety of options, from classic hot dogs to more unique local offerings. You can enjoy the game and grab a tasty bite without emptying your pockets.

So, overall, it’s a win-win: affordable tickets, a fantastic atmosphere, and some delicious eats. What’s not to love?

Parking For the Games: 

Now, on to the most important question: Where to park for a game at Riverfront Stadium? This was a big question back when the stadium was being built, and it’s a fair question. You don’t want to be driving around in circles downtown when the game’s about to start!

The City of Wichita has produced a map showing available parking lots. The map differentiates between free and paid parking (just look at the legend).

Unfortunately, it looks like most of the parking nearest to the stadium is paid but you can always take the FREE Q-line downtown.
