The central focus of ballpark management is to provide a safe environment. Cincinnati is in an area of the county where severe weather can arise quickly and become a safety concern for Guests throughout the season. Therefore, weather is continuously monitored through local and regional sources. Additionally, Great American Ball Park is a recognized Storm Ready Facility through the National Weather Service.
This designation means the Reds have trained and prepared sheltering-in-place and evacuation plans which have been approved by the National Weather Service, Hamilton County, and Ohio Emergency Management Officials. In the event of severe weather, ballpark staff, the public address announcer, and the scoreboard will advise Guests as to what they can do to get out of harms-way. If that occurs, all Guests are asked to quickly adhere, in an orderly manner, to the instructions provided.
Great American Ball Park has been designated as a completely non-smoking facility under Ohio Law. Therefore, it is the obligation of ballpark staff to insure that smoking, which includes the use of tobacco and vapor devices, does not occur inside Great American Ball Park. Violators may be subject to ejection and potential fines. There is a designated smoking area, outside of GATE B - Gapper's Alley behind Section 119, that is available for those that wish to smoke. Guests inside of the ballpark can use the re-entry gate at the Gapper's Alley gates to gain access to the smoking area. Guests are subject to metal detection screening upon re-entry and there will be no carry-in items permitted through the re-entry gate. If a guest uses any other gate, other than the 2 designated for Re-Entry, to exit they will not be able to partake in the re-entry service.
The smoking area may permanently or temporarily be closed and/or individuals refused at the sole discretion of ballpark management.
