Baseball is back in downtown Wichita with the Wichita Wind Surge. We’ve collected all the details and info you need to know before heading out to a ballgame with the kids!
Wichita Wind Surge Game with Kids | Everything You Need to Know
There are two areas of berm seating in the outfield. It is a natural grass hill, no assigned seating, and bring-your-own-blanket.
Riverfront Stadium is cashless. If you don’t have a credit or debit card, you can purchase loaded cards at the Readystation Cash-to-Card kiosks in the main Team Store and at Guest Services.
Riverfront enforces a clear bag policy. Clear bags must be not larger than 12″x6″x12″. Exceptions: single compartment diaper bags, clutches smaller than 4.5″x6.5″, and medical necessary devices. Never permitted: backpacks, printed-pattern plastic bags, fanny packs, purses, reusable grocery totes, mesh or straw bags, duffle bags, large totes, camera or binocular cases.
In addition to ballpark favorites, fans will find Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers, a pretzel cart, pizza, ice cream, Dippin’ Dots, and beer and liquor stands. And we are so appreciative Wind Surge created a value menu: $1 Hot Dogs (on Tuesdays only), $3 Fountain Drinks, $3 Popcorn, $4 Ice Cream Sandwiches, and $5 Domestic Beers.
In center field, stop by the Kids Zone, presented by Credit Union of America, with free inflatable activities for kids including speed pitch and inflatable basketball.

Behind Section 10, next to Guest Services, you’ll find an area for breastfeeding moms who need a quieter place to nurse. [Thank you, Wichita Wind Surge!]

Windy is a sky blue pegasus and the Wind Surge’s official mascot. Windy blew in with the Kansas and makes the perfect picture partner at a game or when spotted around town.
