Last month we were in Fort Worth for a wedding and the family booked a tour of the Cowboys Stadium in Arlington. I'm not a Cowboys fan but that doesn't mean I can't appreciate their stadium. Holy cow! My jaw dropped when we went inside.
This place is huge, spotless and extremely high-end. Everything about the stadium shouts luxury. It's definitely a one of a kind venue.
The domed stadium with a retractable roof was completed on May 27, 2009. It seats 80,000 and the maximum capacity of the stadium, including standing room, is 110,000. And it's used for a variety of other activities outside of professional football. We couldn't walk out on the field because they were laying grass for a soccer game but even that was fascinating to watch and we went everywhere else, from field level to luxury boxes, to the locker rooms to the press box.
The video screen is gigantic. The seats are well spaced and comfortable. Wide open walkways, tons of sunlight going into the stadium, fast moving lines for the concessions, and luxurious bathrooms.
This is definitely a one of a kind venue.
