    just got tickets in the 300's for the Phins game. Taken my Dad to the game but he has a bum knee. Does anyone know if Gillette has elevators and if they allow the the general public (non-luxery ticket holders that is) to use them to access the 300 section?

    thanks in advance.

    yes they do, but be prepared for a fight to use them. I've been with a friend and his mother (same situation, really bad knee). But since she wasn't in a wheel chair, or horribly crippled, they made us take the ramp. made for a rough day for her.

    Doctors note should clear up any hassle...or for those that are handicapped, you just need your placard.

    I took my Dad (in weelchair) a few years ago and everybody was really nice and accomodating to us all the way through.

    I was going to say that I think you need a wheelchair or a handicapped placard, but a doctor's note would probably work. I'm sure you can't just walk up and ask to use the elevator (as someone's mother above tried). Why don't you call the stadium & check so you don't get a nasty surprise on game day? Have fun at the game!

    No Jersey Selected

    From the Patriots website:

    Look for a TeamOps supervisor (blue jacket) if they tell you that you can't use the elevator.
