About the Rating Scale
Access: Involves the ability and ease to get to and from the venue and the area/neighborhood surrounding it
Aesthetics: How good the venue looks alone and in its surrounding structures
Food & Beverage: How good the food and drinks are at the venue, as well as selection
Atmosphere: The feel of the game, the vibe the fans give off, and how much they get into the game

I have been to some stadiums multiple times, but the rating for each stadium is given based on my first time there and first time experiencing it. Some experiences are different and have sometimes gotten either a little better or a little worse on visits after the first, but the rating does not get changed.
