Tickets for tours of Cowboys Stadium on sale

The Taj Mahal …

The Colosseum …

The Pyramids …

Cowboys Stadium …

It’s not hard to pick out the one that doesn’t belong. Just don’t tell Jerry Jones.

To open the Cowboys’ first regular-season game on Sept. 20, 2009, Jones flashed pictures of the aforementioned ancient landmarks on his 600-ton JumboTron, before ending the slideshow with a proud shot of his new $1.3 billion stadium. And while it might not be quite Wonder of the World worthy (even though it has sometimes been called the Jones-Mahal), it’s still quite a spectacle as far as stadiums go and deserves a closer look if given the chance.

Tickets are on sale starting today for just that – a tour of the facility during the 18-days surrounding the Super Bowl XLV from Jan. 24 to Feb. 10, 2011 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. For forty bucks you’ll get a 90-minute behind the scenes tour, which includes a trolley ride around the perimeter and access to both the players’ and cheerleaders’ locker rooms (and no, not while occupied).

Cowboys Stadium is the largest domed-stadium in the world and is the site of the third Texas-based Super Bowl. The previous two were held in Houston, with Super Bowl VII at Rice Stadium in 1974 and Super Bowl XXXVIII at Reliant Stadium in 2004.
