    Help, are section 230, row 28 good seats?

    i'm looking for tickets against the Panthers and then if the seats are sweet, later against the bears.
    i've been looking at ebay and stub hub and have been eyeing some seats in section 230, 50-yard line upper section.
    They are also in the upper 20's for row.
    the pics it shows looks like a great overview of the entire field.
    I just wanted to know if anyone has sat up there and make sure it's not too nosebleedish.
    Personally i'd rather see the entire field like these seats rather than an endzone seat or the likes.
    Plus i'll be taking my wife to her first game and want to make it good.
    And of course i'm looking at the upper sections because of my budget.
    Any feedback would be appreciated.

    Re: Help, are section 230, row 28 good seats?

    There are only about 30-32 rows in the upper deck, depending on where you are seating.
    In rows 28 and higher, you run the risk of sitting in an obstructed view seat, which means that you might be sitting next to one of the pillars that holds the roof up.
    Obstructed view seats have a face value of about $10 each.
    Otherwise, that is the $25 per seat section.
    Make sure you aren't spending too much for what they are worth,and make sure that they are not obstructed view.

    Odds are that the picture they are showing you is a seat data picture.
    This isn't really from the seats they are selling, but rather from about row 5 or 6 in that section.

    Also, don't knock corner endzone seats.
    I find that they still provide an excellent view, and you also get to see the holes that open up laterally - something you totally miss on TV and from the sidelines.
    Here is one I found on ebay that isn't too bad...

    Finally, you can also try getting tickets directly from the Vikings.
    I did a ticket search and found two tickets in section 234, row 20, seats 14 - 15 for $48 each.

    I don't know what your budget is, but this is the area I would normally start looking in...

    thanks for the fast feedback fellas.
    I found 2 tickets in section 230, row 9 for $155.00.
    doesn't sound too bad and surely I won't have an obstruction from that row.
    basically this is my first time back since a preseason game back in '86.
    also, anyone got any tips on where to stay the night before?

    *** Disregard, they wanted $155.00 for each, yah right******

    $155 apiece is more than I would spend.
    Are you dead set on getting tickets on the sidelines.
    Again, Vikings.com still has tickets available for the Carolina game.
    At $77 each, I found section 227, row 10, seats 6 - 7...

    As far as obstructions, that is only in the upper rows.
    There are very few bad seats in the dome.

    Are you looking to spend the night in downtown Minny, or would you consider staying at the Mall of America. I find the hotels down by the Mall nicer, cheaper, and more to do in the immediate area.
    The light rail costs $6 for a round trip ticket from the Mall to the Metrodome.
    I never stay downtown anymore.
    My hotel of choice is the Country Inn and Suites at the MAO. http://www.countryinns.com/bloomingtonmn

    right now i'm still eyeing those upper level tickets between the 40-50 yard line.
    i'm gonna try and get the lowest seats as possible.
    I will definately be looking at hotels by the MOA since you suggested it and I didn't know they had transportation to the dome, that will be awesome.
    Thanks a bunch.

    The $25 seats for rows 28 on up only applies to the goal line seats, corners & endzones.

    In sections 208, 212, 228 & 232 they run $ 40 if they are unobstructed.

    In sections 209, 211, 229 & 231 they run $ 50 if they are unobstructed.

    In sections 210 & 230 where he was looking, they run $ 69 if they are unobstructed.
