    Hey guys,

    I tried finding a thread similar but nothing newer came up. A few questions if you guys could help me out. I am coming from Edmonton to the Thursday night game on October 31st.

    I see ticketing rules etc have changed. Any one have any advice on best way to get decent tickets that aren't going to cost an arm and a leg? Just watch the Ticketmaster resale site?

    Also we would be coming from Scottsdale.. Is there any type of transit or bus you would recommend? Or just Uber there? Ideally wanted to be there about 2.5 hours early or so to take it all in!

    Any other advice anyone recommends?

    uber would be very expensive from scottsdale, its on the other side of the entire valley. Not much of a transit system though. Maybe rent a car? There is an app called Turo where you can rent cars from other people like airbnb does for peoples houses.

    Uber to the stadium is going to cost you $40 - $50 each way. It's really far from the stadium and it will take you probably an hour and a half to get there for a weekday game.

    Your best bet is to plan on leaving Scottsdale at about 2 PM to give you time for the game.

    With the digital tickets ticketmaster is your only option. I expect the tickets to be super cheap though because it's Halloween and a Thursday game. Stadium is going to be empty.

    First real Halloween game in years. We usually go to our friends' house in Gilbert and help them pass out candy. Nice little tradition. Going to miss that this year. We'll be at the game (after we leave work and fight the traffic on a weekday to get there...Meh) ;)

    I think that's our fourth Thursday game this season. Three in the preseason and Halloween. :|

    Unfortunately, getting a safe, sober ride out there is almost an impossibility. In the past, to be a little safer, I've taken the light rail to be picked up by an Uber. Or, I've gotten a ride from a friend or ASFNer. But you might just have to eat the money to be safe. Driving out is a bad idea, assuming you're really going to take in the atmosphere and party it up a little.

    They really should have a shuttle or bus that goes out there.

    I am really irritated by it. I will have to watch the game after the kids stop coming on tape delay

    All I know is Halloween on the Great Lawn is going to be wild. I am going to make sure of it.

    Me too. Love giving out candy & scaring the kids a little but I'd rather be watching the Cardinals. I will DVR it. Same thing happened a few yrs with my Kentucky football team, played on halloween & had to DVR the game.

    I would but my buddy who had the van no longer has it. I'd like to help & it's possible we will have 2 vehicles going. Where in Scottsdale are you staying ?

    It’ll be an empty game. Stadium will only be 1/2 full being its Halloween and Thursday
    Renting a car would be cheaper than uber
    See if you can share a ride with someone on this board
    Mass transit in Phoenix sucks....for a major city they have no systems in place that they should have.
    I remember 22 years ago I was in college and the city voted no on a top
    Rail system that would run all of the freeways and I could not believe the dummies of the town voted no...you could take a bus and get there, but you should hop on now to get there in time
    Moving from AZ to CA was one of the smartest things I ever did...‘right to work’ state is just a way of saying YOU will NEVER get ahead

    Just 2 tickets! Think it's a bad idea to just wait until game day and buy when at the game?

    Haven't booked a hotel yet. So no pubs offer buses or anything then? Just surprising to me! Even in Edmonton to a CFL game you can catch a ride from about a million different places.
