If you’re going to the Packers-Steelers Super Bowl, it would be in your best interest to find someone else to drive you or take a cab, as the spots to park cars are incredibly expensive. Then again, buying Super Bowl tickets probably means that you’re either rich or won some kind of contest.
Parking lots close to Cowboys Stadium were demanding almost $1,000 for prime spots, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported, while many hotels looked to charge four times their usual room rates around the Feb. 6 event.
At an eye-watering $990, ParkWhiz priced a reserved place in its lot at more than $850 above the stadium’s official parking fee, aimed at fans reluctant to take a pre-game stroll.
“Official stadium parking is over a mile away,” the site said, adding that a “parking pass through ParkWhiz” would take fans “closer to the action.”
But it was not alone in attempting to make a heavy return on the arrival of thousands for the NFL’s showcase event. Rooms in a number of hotels close to the stadium were going for close to $500 dollars around game day, way beyond their usual price of around $75 to $150.
The fact that these places are jacking up their prices so high still isn’t as bad as the fact that there will be people who eventually pay it. There’s no way I’ll ever be able to go to the Super Bowl until I get loads and loads of money, which is why I write this blog. It’s totally going to be my ticket to the high life!
