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.
