  • Whos actually been to a game at mile high?

    Anyone on here been? Im sure there are, but Im just curious. Im saving up to take a trip out there next year to go see a game, I've always wanted to go there and would have killed to go see the Pats play them there, despite them losing, but either way, is it really as good as its made out to be? Im sure it is since every time they show that camera from the top of the stadium its shaking, lol, man that must be sweet.

      Was that preseason game against the colts this year (we lost ahem), I was at that one!

      I was also at the Patriots game on Monday night, my ambition is to attend a game that we win...

      Though it's not that easy to get tickets.

      Patriots on Monday night was a fantastic experience, the crowd was deafiningly loud! Such a buzz!

        Invesco Field at Mile High is a beautiful, state of the art facility and I love attending games there but it lacks the magic that the original Mile High Stadium had. It is still a fantastic place to see the games, but as a long time season ticket holder, it just isn't quite the same. Call me nostalgic, but I miss the rust spots and antiquated bathrooms of Mile High. Don't get me wrong I like the new place, it's just missing some of the old mystique. Hopefully that "Mile High Magic" will build back up in time as our winning ways do. Good luck getting to a game soon, I am sure you'll love it!

          I hear ya Eddie, I went to the last Mon night game (and a few before) at the Old Mile High vs. Raiders WE WON!!!!!! And I went to the opening game at Invesco vs. the Giants WE WON!!!!!!!! But thats the game Eddie broke his leg, I see it as a sign now.......we have been injury ridden ever since (ok, i may be a little superstitious, but I think we are cursed now that we moved, even if it just was across the parking lot, we tore down THE MILE HIGH......I have a t-shirt from the last mon night game that says "End of an Era" How true that ended up being

          It is IMHO that this whole corporate stadium crap takes away from the real game, getting brand new stadiums takes away from the mystique. Can you imagine the Yankees w/o Yankee Stadium, the Red Sox without the Green Monster, and I'm sorry the Broncos without Mile HIgh. It's just not right.

            I have been to many games at the Old Mile High and now in Invesco. Mile High had his its own uniqueness especially in the South Stands where I sat many years.

            The Rocky Mountain thunder is not as loud because we longer have the bleachers in the south stands. I still sit in the south stands at Invesco and I do like the comfortable seats, but I miss Mile High even with the hard bleachers.

            The crowd is not the same. Maybe over the years they will be, I don't know, but it is still a lot of fun to go to the games.

            Going to a game is an experience you will never forget, so if you can attend by all means try to.

            Most all the seats are good seats, but I guess I am spoiled, the fifth level is a little high for me. The seats are great there but once you sit in the second level, you do not want to go back to the fifth in my opinion.

              I went to a Rockies game at the Old Mile High with a crowd of 70k+. It was unreal...and it was baseball! I have been to one game at Invesco so I can't really compare but it seemed plenty loud to me and I enjoyed my expierience even though the Broncos lost.

                The "New Mile High"

                The new stadium is less fan friendly, more costly (i.e. consessions parking) and we taxpayers paid for most if not all of the stadium... it is OK but there is no comparison to the old "gal"(sniff, tear in the eye) we called Mile High Stadium...

                  Yep. Mind you, the 60 yard pass was great

                    I've been there

                    I got to go two seasons ago when we played San Diego and that was the only game I've been to unfortunately. But it was an awesome experience. One of my best friends had a cousin and his wife who had season tickets and they weren't using those two
                    tickets for that game so my friend and I bought them and went.

                    Our seats kicked A$$!!! We were in the second deck right above the north end-zone. The Broncs won that game, and I was fortunate enough to see TD play. It was towards the end of his career, and he ran for only 75 yards. But man, I'll never forget that game.

                    The funny thing was I also went to the Husker game on that Saturday. (and you don't think I'm a football freak?) So I got to go Memorial Stadium in a capacity 75,000 + crowd, Drive back to Ogallala, get home at 1:30 AM, and leave that morning at about 7:00 and go to the Broncs game at 2:00, welcomed by another wild bunch of 75,000 + screaming fans. DEFINATELY a weekend I'll never forget. Oh yeah, the Big Red also won their game against Kansas State.

                      Went to one game and a lot of other events (high school band competitions, etc) at the old Mile High. It DID have a magical feeling. Now I have been to one game at Invesco, had club level seating, but it was the Monday game LAST year when the Raiders beat us up, Griese froze in the pocket, Shannon was hurt, and Gannon hit every pass he threw. Needless to say, the atmosphere at the game was low and sad. But Invesco is so state-of-the-art that it doesn't feel REAL, ya know?

                        Living in Indy, I dont get to too many games at Mile High, but I did fly out for one game. It was a monday night game, right before Thanksgiving. We spanked the Raiders. What an awesome weekend. Denver really takes pride in its Monday night parties and events. Oh yeah, it was the year we won the Superbowl, so that was great. Im still trying to make it out to the new stadium. But I will be there soon!

                            Y'all should buy me a season ticket. I've been to six games at Mile High (5 Chiefs-Broncos) and 1 Denver Bears game and the home team won all of them.

                            I've not been to to the new field, but I can't imagine the stands shake like they did in the old Mile High.
                            Despite all the hype, once you finally get a hammer, you don't hammer nearly as much as you think you will.

                              What's Shakin'

                              I only associate bad things for my team with the stands shaking, so that's one engineering breakthrough I could do without. LOL. Seriously, Denver's a great place to go to a game, and KC wasn't worth a darn during the years I went so it wasn't a real shock to lose.
