Welcome to Canal Park
The Akron RubberDucks are excited to welcome all of you back to Canal Park for the 2023 season! We can't wait to see all of #QuAkron back out at the ballpark for another season of affordable family fun! To see what fun we have in store for you at the game check out the promotions page here. And to find out information about the RubberDucks on the field check out tonight's game notes.
The RubberDucks will be adding two new procedures for the 2023 season that will improve efficiencies and speed up service time. The first of these procedures is a shift to digital ticketing. Digital ticketing allows fans the ability to have more control over their tickets by being able to go online and select games, forward to friends or recall tickets. Digital tickets allow a quicker and easier entry into Canal Park. By adding the ticket to their Apple or Google wallet, fans can easily hold their phone next to the scanner and then enter the game. For any questions about digital tickets or help navigating digital tickets visit our digital ticketing help webpage.
The second new procedure for the 2023 season is Canal Park is going cashless. This change will make transactions at Canal Park more efficient. Fans that bring cash to Canal Park can use the reverse ATM next to Akron-Canton Airport Guest Services to convert cash quickly and easily into a card that can be used anywhere. The reverse ATM is only accessible inside Canal Park and cannot be accessed at Canal Park's box offices. There will be a few exceptions to the cashless policy to help best serve fans of all ages. Kid-programmed days like: Education Days (May 16 and 23) and Big Splash Day (July 18) will be hybrid days where Canal Park will accept cash or card, and the Fun Zone will accept cash or card at every game throughout the season.
“We are always looking to improve fan experience,” RubberDucks President and General Manager Jim Pfander said. “We did a lot of research and visited the best sports venues in the business over the past few years. With the move to digital ticketing and a cashless ballpark, we are making transactions at Canal Park faster and easier so fans can spend more time enjoying all the affordable family fun we have planned this season.”
The RubberDucks unveiled five new Extreme Food items in 2023. These five are:
Buffalo Chicken Nachos are a pound of nachos. A bed of tortilla chips covered with buffalo chicken dip, bacon bits, jalapeno, green onion, black olives and a ranch drizzle make up this new creation.
