Went to a concert there. Acoustics were great. Concessions were crazy priced. Place is clean, lots of security. But don't eat there!

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.

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.
