    How much time to get to Arrowhead

    Due to other Football obligations, I can't get going from Ankeny until 10:00 next Saturday. I want to tailgate but won't have time. Is 4 hours enough to get from Ankeny to Arrowhead? Never been to the stadium before.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    I'd say about 4.5 hours from Ankeny. That's just getting there. Parking and all that other crap will take a bit.

    Yes. It's about 210 from Ames so a little shorter for you. You'll take I35 down to I435 to I70 and exit on the right and take your first right and be in the parking lot at Arrowhead. Should take roughly 3 hours and they do a pretty good job with traffic.

    4 1/2 hours should give u an hour between arrival at the complex and when the game starts. I'm sure you'll spend half of that hour parking because of K-State fans showing up at their normal time.

    Is he stopping in St. Louis first? We went to Yankees/Royals in April and it was a little bit less than 3 hours going 70 the whole time.

    Re: How much time to get to Arrowhead

    Google Maps puts it at about three hours, but traffic and parking will obviously affect that.

    from: ankeny, ia to: 1 Arrowhead Dr, Kansas City, MO 64129-1651 (Arrowhead Stadium) - Google Maps

    Is there anything you don't do backwards? You might as well be from Missouri.

    So I assuming leaving WDM around 6 or 7 will work just fine, for maximum tailgating?

    I checked out mapquest, but I didn't know what parking was like around the stadium or anything.

    There are HUGE lots on each side of the stadium and I'd assume they use the Royals parking if they aren't in town. If the Royals are in town things could get a bit dicy. A lot of cars will be at hotels within walking distance of the stadium so that'll keep some cars outta the lots.

    Just a forewarning, parking at Arrowhead is $22 I believe.
