Comerica Park was built in 2000 to replace the beloved and historic Tigers Stadium. A state of the art venue, Comerica is home to the Detroit Tigers and countless mega concert performances including Eminem, The Rolling Stones and Bruce Springsteen. With the legacy of Tigers baseball, world class concessions and extra features such as fountain water shows and fireworks displays, Comerica is something to be experienced. Opening Day is one of the most anticipated days in Detroit.

Attractions

Comerica Carousel
An ornate carousel, featuring 30 hand-painted tigers and two chariots, is located at the base of the food court behind the first base area. The ride is fully wheelchair-accessible.

Fly Ball Ferris Wheel
Located on the third base side of the Park in the Brushfire Grill, this 50-foot Ferris wheel features cars shaped like baseballs that can seat up to five passengers and is wheelchair accessible.

Sculptures
The Tigers celebrate six of their all-time great players with a series of unique statues located along the left centerfield wall. The statues are cast in stainless steel and capture the essence of some of the greatest Tigers in action–Ty Cobb, Charlie Gehringer, Hank Greenberg, Willie Horton, Al Kaline and Hal Newhouser. Each is perched atop a granite pedestal and reaches about 13 feet in height.

Liquid Fireworks
The centerfield wall features a fountain that produces a stunning “liquid fireworks” display. It is synchronized to music and changing lights and is used to celebrate home runs and other in-game moments.

Walk of Fame
All through the main concourse, guests can enjoy the Tigers “Walk of Fame,” a historical display that envelops the circumference of the lower level. Historical elements celebrating the Tigers rich history from the 1800s to the present take guests on a trip through time, punctuated by six large “decade bats” that denote each era in Tigers baseball with artifacts, photos and display cases.
