Want to know the SunTrust Park secrets? If you are bringing kids to the brand new home of the Atlanta Braves, you need to get a little information first. After so much fanfare, the amazing stadium is hosting games and inviting fans of all ages to come out and enjoy some baseball, as well as a zip line, climbing wall, batting cages, and tons of amazing food. But before you head to Cobb county, here are six SunTrust Park secrets you should know.
6 SunTrust Park Secrets for Families
1. SunTrust Park has a kid-friendly area.
One of the SunTrust Park secrets families should look into first and foremost is the kid-friendly area. The Atlanta Braves teamed up with Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta to bring exciting baseball-themed activities to SunTrust Park for the Braves’ youngest fans. The “Hope and Will’s Sandlot,” is a large, kid-friendly area hosted by Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta that will have the first-ever zip line and climbing tower inside a professional sporting venue. There also will be a batting cage and a variety of other interactive games. Don’t think your kids will sit for an entire game…or even an entire inning? Good news. They don’t have to!
2. You don’t have to wait for the zip line.
Before you leave for the park, download the new MLB app. Choose Atlanta Braves as your team when it prompts you to sign in and you will have a pleothra of information right at your finger tips. One of the most important things for families is that the app allows you to pay and reserve a time slot for kids to check out the zip line and climbing tower. Each activity costs $5 per person. The app allows you to reserve a timeslot to access both of these attractions.
