    I get to visit the Bidvest Cricket grounds quite often for work purposes. Many of the boxes have air conditioning which either has to be serviced, repaired or replaced. The only downfall to me, is the parking! Whenever there is a big match, there are either frustrated people looking for parking or people suffering with road rage trying to drive up or down Corlett Drive, because they are waiting for someone to park their vehicle!! Once entering the grounds everything runs smoothly. The grass is exceptionally well maintained, refreshments always available and box holders always ready to welcome their guests. Great vibes at this cricket stadium!!

    Bidvest Wanderers Cricket Stadium is definitely the premier cricketing venue in South Africa. Its remarkably well located (really close to Rosebank Gautrain) and the most special thing they sell here? The Atmosphere.... You know when you rock up at the Wanderes that you're in for a treat. Teams just dont seem to go small here. Its always a good game and its always gonna be a crowd of excited cricket supporters that are in it to win it. Come well fed as the food is not the cheapest. But you'll be feasting more on a beautiful game than anything else.

    Such a great vibe watching the cricket at this stadium! The place wasn't that clean but it was well organised. The only issues are the parking and the parking guards who appear to just be random guys with reflective vests. Can they not arrange for people to be paid to actually do this job and not rip you off by charging R50 and leaving before the game even starts?? So much for watching my car.....

    The only downside is the parking, so whether you running the JP Morgan challenge or watching your favorite cricket match, best to get there very early (most times surrounding roads are closed closer to event times).I am lucky because I have a friend who lives near by. I used to see matches held here but you only really experience the game when you at the event. Atmosphere is great and people just know how to make this place rock.The stadium is clean and there is sufficient food vendors around to grab some food and many drinks to keep you energized for the rest of the game. Definitely a good experience.

    I go to the Wanderers all the time and each time is a unique experience. The crowd is just fantastic and grass banks are just the best. Everyone's cheering, shouting, running all the time regardless of which team is winning.

    Arguably the best cricket ground in the world, especially when it is packed to capacity. I've been here many times and there is always an amazing atmosphere. Parking, like all stadiums, is a mission, so try to get there early. Food is not a problem, from borie rolls to Nando's, you will not be disappointed.

    I have been to this stadium a few times and every occasion was a pleasant experience for me. The roads were well marked, parking was clearly allocated and car guards were very helpful. The walk to the stadium itself is quite close from where you park your car, which is great.

    There was always a variety of fast food available and ample stalls at all the entrances, which meant less time spent in the lines. The stadium was always clean on my visits.

    It's also in a good location. The Protea Hotel is opposite, so one can always have a few drinks in their lounge/bar area after an event at the Stadium.

    This one of the best stadiums in the world. Always in great, clean condition, whether it is the stands or any of the stadiums. If you ever get an opportunity to be invited to the Long Room, its an opportunity never to be missed.
