FREE Tickets, Popcorn &V.I.P. Parking!  Plus, photos with  the Inflatamaniacs .
You can expect a ticket to the game plus free water and popcorn. Here is a stadium map that shows  our suite (#201) which is also conveniently located across from a full-service concession stand and a concourse area that is filled with fun activities

Tell the parking attendant you are in the Heartland Community College suite and they will waive you up to the V.I.P., concourse-level parking.  Park anywhere you can find a spot there.
