Parking at Jerry World

First time going. Where's the best place to park? Would like a place that we can get out fairly quickly.

Good luck... Prepare to pay $50+ and don't get in a hurry. Unless you plan on leaving before the 2nd OT

Fair warning you'll easily pay 30-50$ for parking. I usually go there to tailgate and I don't see very many tickets. I did see some on ticket master for 85 the other day so you may try that.

Park at J Gillian's in Arlington. $8 shuttle per person to the game. Easier to get away from traffic. We did this last year and will be doing it again this year.

If you use a shuttle, make sure you know EXACTLY where it will be after the game.  The place is a mad house.

A few years ago we tried to sell some tickets outside of Cowboys stadium less than face value.  A police officer came over to us and said there was an Arlington city ordinance that says you can't sell any tickets outside the stadium.  There was a registered ticket broker across the street at a gas station that could buy and sell, but the public could not.  So be careful if you try to do this.  My experience is about 4 years old so this could have changed.

Thankfully, there is not a Rangers game that night. I'm sure they coordinate those things, but I had to check. There is a lot I parked in for the OM/OSU Cotton Bowl a few years back. Was about a half mile North of the Jerry Dome, adjacent to Globe Life Stadium (Rangers). Was $40.00 then. Probably more now. Was an easy in and out if you pre-planned.

Always park in Lot 10, leave as soon as the game is over and never have any problems leaving. That is parking right by the gates to get out.

Interstate 30 updates?
« Reply #17264 on: September 23, 2016, 01:54:32 pm »

Not sure if it's back open but Hope - Texarkana was one lane a month ago and took about an hour to get 30 miles. Anyone passing through that can update this hourly would be greatly appreciated

Arkansas, the orange barrel state. Other states close 2 miles and work on it. We close 15 miles with orange barrels and no one is there.

The IDriveArkansas app says that there's a minor slowdown just south of Hope, and a major slowdown between the Highway 108 exit just north of Texarkana and the I-49 interchange.  Doesn't look like it's a long stretch.

I-30 North bound is one lane from just before 108 exit and all the way to the Red River. Sometimes it moves at a pretty good clip. Sometimes not. Best to take 108 exit over to 67 and go that way to Fulton.

Try [CENSORED].com

You can pay in advance and reserve a spot. Looks like a lot about 0.6 mi away is $22 but they go up considerably closer to the stadium. I used them for the bowl game with K-State.

I travel that stretch of interstate quite a bit.  I exit in Hope and take 67 to 296.  Take a right on 296 to Four States Fair Pkwy.  Take a left on that and it will take you to I-30 by a Road Runner and Circle K.

Humperdink's across from Six Flags runs a shuttle for cheap too.  It's also a great atmosphere to enjoy before the game.

It is definitely log jammed going both east and west.

Down to one lane both directions. I would advise exiting 30 in hope and taking 67 to Texarkana.

So it's just $22.00 for the night? Nothing by the hour, just seems super cheap. And if you leave the then set as 1:00AM it doesn't charge you for the next day does it? Just want to make sure I do that correctly.

Take the advice from the others. I've been having to drive to Hope and back to and from Hope the last 2 weeks. If you drive that part of I30 in the early morning you go 60 in the one lane areas the whole way. At least. But afternoons, rush hour, coming from Texarkana, especially around the red River and Fulton exit, traffic gets pretty backed up. 18 wheelers log jam the traffic.
Driving from Hope to Texarkana leaving at 5:20 am I get to hope about 5:50. Driving home at 2 in the afternoon from Hope to Texarkana takes me from 30-33 minutes drive, which isn't bad.

My best advice is if you do want to stay on I30 and go that way, leave be in that area before the sun comes up and you'll make good time. Don't drive it during the day. If you do, take the alternate routes. Because one area in particular around the Fulton exit, when it goes to one lane, the traffic was down to 20 mph the other day.

Btw, the area of I30 east bound from Texarkana to hope around Fulton. It looks like it's ready to open. Freshly paved, I saw it finished being paved last week, trucks rolling it this week. It looks ready. If it is that section will be ready to go.

Arkansas, the orange barrel state. Other states close 2 miles and work on it. We close 15 miles with orange barrels and no one is there.

Ha! No shite JM. Have they ever finished the freeways from Little Rock to Conway and Little Rock to Cabot?

Good Lord, it's like down here, apparently they just point in a direction that has the least amount of construction already in progress, pour some asphalt down and throw up some brass lamps on each side.....then put a toll booth in every few miles and call it a 'win-win' for everyone - problem solved.

Not going this year, but in the past we have always parked at the Lincoln Square Mall at the corner of I-30 and Collins.  It costs 40 bucks to park, but you get $40 dollar of credit to the pubs located in the Mall, so if you want hang out before the game it's basically free.  They also run a shuttle to the stadium for I think $5 dollars a person, but it's only about a 15 minute walk otherwise.

Yep been doing that for the last year or so leaving, and about 6 months coming, the route mentioned above at the last Texarkana exit, takes you to Fulton or you can keep going on to Hope.

It honestly is a piece of cake if you're going from Hope to Texarkana at any time of day. I drive I30 from Hope to Texarkana leaving hope at 2 or 3 in the afternoon and go 70 most of the way. It takes 30-35 minutes. If you are going from Texarkana to hope be going through there on I30 before the sun comes up and you will make it in under 30 minutes.

Lord no. They don't ever really finish anything in central Arkansas. They have most of 440 shut down now, and they're getting ready to start about a 5 year overhaul of both the Broadway bridge and the I30 river bridge. Somehow they're planning to redo that crap pretty much from McCain all the way across the river but keep it open at the same time. Talk about a Charlie Foxtrot.

Easiest way to get to 67 at Hope--- Take exit 32-go past Walmart on 278- 2 miles then left on Melrose Lane-2 miles to 67. This will save you 15 minutes vs going through Hope. Melrose Lane is just past the John Deere place also on the left.

The construction isn't nearly the big deal some of you are making it to be. Everyone can still go at least 60 most of the way. Especially driving from Hope.

I hear what you are saying, and you apparently drive it all the time. I drive through there about 10 to 12 times a year, and I have had 2 occasions in the last year where I was held up at least 45 minutes because I didn't get off at hope on Sunday afternoons. So I remain skeptical ;D
Also 3 weeks ago I know I had to have gained 30 minutes by getting off at Texarkana and getting on whichever highway that was because when we crossed over i30 it looked like a parking lot, that was a Friday about 6 on Labor Day weekend however. I use Google maps navigation and it is pretty good about letting you know about traffic backups and alternate routes, so I use it even though I know where I am going.

Well 6 in the evening is rush hour. There are bound to be a few little delays, especially driving from Texarkana to hope east bound when you first leave Texarkana and get on that first little bit of construction and around the Fulton exit too where you have that area where the interstate merges into the other side. But pretty much rest of the time it's not that big a deal. There are no issues either way if driving early morning before 7. No issues driving from Hope to Texarkana really at any time. Might be a little bit of slowing traffic around the Fulton exit. My speed slowed down into the 30s one time driving home from Hope. And that was in 2 weeks of driving that way. I still made it to Texarkana in 35 minutes from Hope.

If I'm not mistaken, even on those US highways you get off on the speed is 65 at the most. I30 the whole way it's 70 with most doing 80. So not that big of a difference most of the time.

I30 is a big gamble on weekends. Keep in mind a stalled vehicle  or accident ahead can strand you for several hours or more.
