Transportation to the dome?

8 posts in this topic

Coming up from Iowa for the first two games. Staying at Prior Lake. Can I park and walk, or park and take a bus to the game? I'm perfectly capable of walking a ways if necessary.

Spinner, Find the info for the light rail and you can park around the mall of america and the light rail drops you off right by the dome. The only drawback is that it is pretty crowded after the game. I always had my best luck driving up and finding the cheap lots a few blocks away and just walking. Do that for both twins and vikes games. actually pretty nice and if you do it right you can avoid some of the traffic. grin.gif

Thanks Matt

If I take the rail, how long of a wait are we talking after a sold out game?

After a sold out game you might wait up to an hour to get on a train, especially if it's a close game and everyone stays until the end. If you park at the Mall of America lot it will take about 35 minutes to get to the dome. You can buy a 6 hour pass and ride all you want. For a 7pm game buy your pass around 6pm and go. Get to the park around 6:35pm. A 3.5 hour game (thats long) takes you to 10:30 and leaves you 1.5 hours on your pass. After the game take the first train going further downtown, it's only another 8 blocks or so to the end of the line. Stay on the train (after all you got the pass) and come back towards the dome. You should make it with time to spare. You will spend more commuting time taking the train than if you drive. If there are more than 2 people in your group it's cheaper to drive downtown and park in one of the lots about 2 to 3 blocks away from the dome. After a game traffic disperses in all directions at once so there is not a big jam up.

My wife at the mall for four hours. That's about as scary as Carlos Silva pitching to Pujols in the World Series.

      The quality of walleye on fish has really amped up since the slot. I would put it up there with the St. Louis River now as far as local waters that produce quality walleye. Sometimes it's hard to catch an eye under 17"...its kinda the opposite of Island Lake. I wish the protected slot was a little longer as I don't see many over 26".

      I never got a chance to get down to Superior in the morning to fish from shore, as it was always a little too rough every day. I did get up early enough to make it to the devil track river, finally for the first time. Was nice to check it out, although my time was short. Caught 1 little rainbow, and lost 6!    Also checked out the Poplar River for the first time, off the caribou trail, at the campgrounds. Only fished it for a little bit, but caught 2 brook trout, one of which was about 12 inches. River was surprisingly deep, was wading in waste deep water.    My dad and my son are still up there. But they haven't really been able to fish due to the rain on Saturday and Sunday. If it was nice today, they were going to go back to Greenwood Lake. Otherwise, if the weather was bad, they were coming home a day early. Haven't heard from them yet, so hopefully they were able to get out.

      Yes just north of Cook.  They are open 7 days 8:00-4:30. Y-store is open 5am - midnight.

      Wind was howling when we left the dock this morning and I was pretty shook up about it. A nice steady bite with decent fish made the day a real pleasure.   Good news going into the big weekend, the fish are biting.

      Is it the LaCroix Ranger Station where you pick up the permits now?

      not something I consider when eating as I don't eat fish weekly.  I feed them to my kids and my wife ate it while pregnant.  Not sure if there really is a concern or not but the basic guidelines are out there more for kids and pregnant women.  Unless you are eating fish daily or every other day then I don't think you need to worry a whole bunch.  Heck if you die because of mercury poisoning from eating too many fish, well at least you had one hell of a time before you died! HAHAHA   A few years back a local lake close to the metro started producing a lot of crappies and people drove all over to fish.  A lot of fish were taken and eaten.  The lake had been traditionally known as a dumping pond for farm runoff and other things like that...I ate a limit or 2 from said lake and never had issues with anything and the fish tasted like they should.  Point being that unless they say "DON'T EAT FISH FROM THIS LAKE" just follow the state guidelines for your kids and prego wife but other than that enjoy a meal or 2 a week if you are lucky to catch enough!!  Good Luck- Ozzie

      I think day use motor or camping requires a permit, not self service.
