Comerica Park is a great ballpark for families with small children. In addition to the carousel
in the food court (Big Cat Court), there is also a Ferris wheel
with baseball-shaped cars. Both of these features are on the lower level, with the carousel/Big Cat Court at section 119, and the Ferris Wheel near the beergarden at section 131. Therefore, ideal seats for families with children looking for this type of distraction would be between sections 119 and 131
...which happen to be around homeplate (and expensive).
Another (cheaper) option is to buy tickets in the lower deck sections 131-151
, and enter the ballpark through the main gate (Gate A) on the west side of the stadium near section 119 - (closest to Woodward Avenue and the Fox Theatre). By entering here, you'll pass by both features on your way to your seats - and once again upon exit. The lower deck section numbers increase as you make your way down the left field line towards centerfield, and the price generally gets lower the further you go. As mentioned above, tickets can be had for as little as $5 on Ticket Network
to some of the left field sections.
