Every seat was pretty much a great seat for hockey games, but we attended two different concerts in the Essar Centre and it wasn't the ideal venue. When it came time to hear what the artists were saying or singing, there was too much "echoing" sound to make it very clear. The venue is sufficiently large and there seems to... More

They did a great job with this arena. Sure it could be bigger with another ice pad but overall watching hockey is awesome at this arena and since that is the main purpose it gets a perfect score.

Price was great of OHL hockey. Tickets weren't hard to get. Not a bad seat in the house. Vendors in the aisles offered (beer, peanuts, chips, soft drinks etc Patrons were a bit rowdy but that only added to the atmosphere. I'd go again any time.

I bought 2 tickets to see Bryan Adams for my mom's birthday. Essar must not know how the arena will be set up prior to selling tickets. We were seated in the front row of section 118 with 3 other ladies. These seats should never be sold! The band had all their carry cases and sound equipment set up there.... More

Quebec(9) playing the Sault(2) during the Telus Cup. Seating was good, lots of room, washrooms were big and clean, fast service at the concession, prices are fair. Cost was $10.00 per person. Was a good night out while visiting the Sault for our Open Ice 3 on 3 hockey tournament.

I've been to the Essar Centre for several hockey games, concerts, and trade shows. In all cases it makes a great venue, with a simple layout and a friendly staff. This size of venue means that you always have a good view of the action and the seating is quite good. I have also attended games with friends in the... More
