It isn't often when both a stadium or a team are given a second chance after a troubled past, but in the case of New Orleans, both the Saints and their arena, the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, have come roaring back. In the confusion and the cacophony of chaos following Hurricane Katrina, the Superdome was damaged and the Saints were struck with controversy regarding a possible move to San Antonio. Nevertheless, both the circular castle called the Superdome and their knights bearing the fleur-de-lis arose from the depths like a phoenix aflame with life and flew towards victory. With the stadium renovated and the Saints with their first Super Bowl victory in 2009, the future looks bright, that is if you can find Superdome parking before the game begins. Following $336 million worth of renovations since 2006, complete structural repairs (including the outer layer) have been completed, in addition for now having seating capacity for up to 73,208 Saints fans. In addition to being the home of the Saints, other recurring events include the Sugar Bowl, the Bayou Classic and the New Orleans Bowl. However, no matter what you're seeing, you will need Superdome parking. If you plan ahead, you can book Saints parking or Sugar Bowl parking before the game with ParkWhiz, so you don't end up caught in the bayou looking for Superdome parking when the Saints come marching in.
Like the Superdome, the New Orleans Saints have a troubled past, but a promising future. For their first few decades, the Beasts of the Bayou weren't doing so well. By the early eighties, fans reportedly wore bags on their heads and referred to the team as the "Aints." When Hurricane Katrina hit, the team hadn't been to the NFL playoffs since 2000, and had never won a Super Bowl. Chaos followed the storm and the resultant damage to both the Superdome and the City of New Orleans, causing a very public argument about whether to keep the Saints in New Orleans. The team had temporarily set up headquarters in San Antonio, and there was talk of permanently moving the team there. Luckily for the city, the team stayed in New Orleans. With the public support of the team by the citizens and the shared trauma of the hurricane, the team went on to win the Super Bowl in 2009, along with playoff appearances in 2006, 2009, 2010 and 2011. The story of the Saints is moving and powerful, but it isn't so good when you can't find a Superdome arking spot to their games. Luckily for you, ParkWhiz can help you book a Saints parking spot before the game begins, so while everyone else might get lost finding New Orleans parking in the crescent city, you can relax and enjoy the game.
ParkWhiz is as easy as having fun at Mardi Gras, letting you book Superdome parking long before the game begins. All you have to do is find the game that you want to see, book your Superdome parking spot and print your pass. When you bring your ParkWhiz pass with you, let the Cajun Kids sweat it, not you.

How do I apply a discount code?
If you received a promotional discount code from ParkWhiz, you'll want to be logged into your ParkWhiz account before applying the code on the checkout page. Make sure you’re using the same email address to log in as the one where you received that coupon!
Note that all discount codes will come from ParkWhiz directly. If you received your code from a third-party website, there's a significant chance it will not work. Unless specifically noted, discount codes cannot be used for monthly parking.
If you were issued ParkWhiz credit, the credit will automatically deduct from your total on the checkout page before your next purchase. Be sure you're logged in under the account to which the credit was issued before confirming that purchase, to see the credit applied.
How do I present my my pass on-site?
Easy peasy! As the vast majority of locations in our network accept a mobile pass, this means you can use your phone or other smart device to show proof of your prepaid purchase once you arrive at the parking facility. To be sure, verify the instructions on your pass to confirm the validation method. That section is titled "When You Arrive" in-app or "How To Park" if viewing on a desktop or mobile web.
For a seamless, no-printer-required experience, check out the ParkWhiz app! Thousands of space at your fingertips. Rest assured that if searching and booking on a mobile device, we won't show you any locations that require a printed pass! At least not until cars come equipped with printers!
If your location does not accept mobile passes, you'll need to print the pass before leaving the house.
Do I have in-and-out privileges?
In most instances, no. The majority of locations on ParkWhiz, including all those in New York City, do not allow re-entry.
If any specific parking facility does allow for you to come & go during the reserved timeframe, you'll see a "Reentry Allowed" amenity icon listed; this is shown in the details section both pre-purchase and post-purchase.
If you don't see anything on the listing page pertaining to specifically to reentry privileges, it's best to assume that you will not be allowed to come and go throughout the duration of your parking pass.
Are there any additional fees on site?
Generally, no. What you see online is what you pay as long as you park within the timeframe on your parking pass. Any time parked outside the arrival or departure listed on your pass will likely incur an additional onsite fee, as determined by the parking provider. ParkWhiz purchases include tax.
The only exception to the above pertains to oversize vehicle fees, which may apply to any vehicle larger than a sedan. Fee amounts vary between individual Parking Operators, and will be assessed on-site if you do not prepay for an oversize vehicle through our platform.
Although pricing structures are determined individually by the facility owner/operator, ParkWhiz prices tend to be cheaper than drive-up in most cases! If you ever feel the rate on ParkWhiz was more expensive than drive-up, take a photo of the price on-site and send us an email! We love deals as much as you do and are eager to ensure you're getting a fair rate.
