Dallas Cowboys Stadium Tour
With a husband and son that love NFL football, we couldn’t go to the Dallas/Fort Worth area and NOT tour AT&T stadium. AT&T Stadium is home to the Dallas Cowboys! Renowned for its 1.2 billion dollar price tag, AT&T Stadium is meant to top all other football stadiums! We signed up for the VIP Tour to see what made it stand apart from the rest.
AT&T Stadium Information
AT&T Stadium is located in Arlington, Texas; nearly halfway between Dallas and Fort Worth. It is the largest domed stadium in the world and the largest enclosed stadium in the NFL! In fact, the inside of the stadium is over 3 million square feet.
The stadium doesn’t just host the Dallas Cowboys, though. There are numerous events throughout the year, from Monster Truck Rallies to NCAA basketball, and most notably- the Cotton Bowl.
The seating capacity can be changed to accomodate different events. For instance, they can remove the cup holders and add more seats.
AT&T Stadium is also regarded by sports fans for having the largest center-hung screen in the NFL. The screen is 7 stories tall and weighs 1.7 million pounds!
VIP Tours of Dallas Cowboys Stadium
Visitors on the VIP stadium tour will receive a guided tour of the AT&T Stadium interior. Tours last approximately 90 minutes, but leave extra time for playing on the field – as that the highlight for our family!
VIP Tours visit the Owner’s Perch for Jerry Jones. He has an elevator that takes him down to the sidelines. We also learned on the tour that Mr. Jones arrives at the stadium by helicopter. Not too shabby.
AT&T Stadium does not only host the Cotton Bowl, but it is also the Cotton Bowl headquarters. Those on the VIP Tour will see the HQ as well as a helmet display that showcases all of the previous winners. The Cotton Bowl trophy stays on-site.
The end of the tour includes access to the Cowboy Cheerleader Locker Room as well as the Cowboys Locker Room. The Cowboy Cheerleader Uniforms are on display and they are just as tiny as they look on TV. Lol! In the player locker room, individual lockers are named, so you can easily find where your favorite player drops his stuff!
As I mentioned before, our favorite part of the tour was the opportunity to walk and play on the field at the conclusion of the tour. Before your visit, check the tour website to confirm that the field will be open on the day of your visit.
Tips for taking an AT&T Stadium Tour
The tour covers a lot of space, so make sure you wear good walking shoes and prepare to be on your feet!
Water bottles are allowed on the tour. Bring enough for the whole family – especially if you plan to play on the field!
While playing on the field is permitted, you’ll need to bring your own football! There are footballs available to purchase in the team shop, but they are not cheap!
