Address: Minute Maid Park, 501 Crawford St, Houston, TX 77002, by Section 132
Cost: Free with ball park admission
Appropriate Age: The rules say 4-12 years old, but on the day we visited, it was 3-12 years old.
Right next to section 132 in Minute Maid Park, on ground level, is Minute Maid Squeeze Play where kids can go wild. The play structure is a replica of the stadium and full of tubes, platforms and has a Minute Maid train.
Just behind the playground is a place where the kids can race the giant baseball player. There is also a virtual hitting game and pitching cage (but they were not open when we visited).
The age limit online says ages 4 to 12. When we were there, the staff was admitting kids 3 and older.
After watching a little baseball, we walked around to section 132, looked out the window and saw the playground.
There are just a couple ways in and out of the tubes, so it’s pretty easy to watch from the bench. Since it does go so high up, I did wonder if I’d be climbing to the top to rescue any of my kids, but fortunately no one had to see this.
After some climbing, my 6 year old went to race the baseball player. In back of the play structure there is a giant wooden guy that “runs” between bases. Kids can line up and race him!
