Parking is expensive- $15. You have to pay at in the parking ramp lobby. Please note there are machines that take cash or credit and some that take only credit cards. At the time we left, the credit-only machines had very short lines.

Rosemont's MB Financial Park is on opposite side of garage. Good restaurants to choose from. Plus they'll validate your parking.

It was a first visit for my 12 yr. old son and I and we totally enjoyed it. We would attend again but it's too bad it will be in the Chicago area for the last time this year.
