Been here on many different occasions

Concerts, dance recitals and conventions. The place is large but dealing with the traffic/parking can be a pain. The security guards are very helpful.

The concert was amazing - incredible - and I wouldn't change the fact that we drove from Florida. We had tickets for Tampa but the event was cancelled due to the Stanley Cup playoffs in the same arena. We were already headed for a weekend in Atlanta, so what was 2 more hours to see Garth freakin Brooks? This venue... More

We came for the Garth Brooks concert on June 13. The arena was fairly easy to find and there seemed to be a good deal of parking. We paid $20 to park in the premium parking lot which was very close to the entrance. Once inside there were several varieties of vendors with different types of food and drink. We... More

We passed through this area of Alabama, So I really cant tell you much of the city, so just stay on the interstate and you will get where your going.

I go here for as many events as I possibly can. I go to the home and garden shows at least once a year, try to get to the annul Lego show, have seen the musical production "Wicked" as well as Monster Trucks! The last concert I saw there was Maroon 5, so I am hoping they will come back... More

I have attended a conference and a concert here. I found parking and seating to all be comfortable. It's a bit of a walk but no big deal really. It holds a lot of people so obviously it's crowded but they seem to run things really well for crowds that large.

The location is huge with multiple venues ongoing simultaneously. Directly across the street from the complex is a market area full of restaurants and trendy shops. The area transforms into a trendy outside bar/restaurant nightlife area. Location relatively close to interstates.

This place needs a facelift and an infusion of dollars. I went to a conference there recently. The food was okay, not great; we went out afterwards for another meal. Lower your expectations.

I took my son here to see monster jam. It was good to see the trucks and the side shows, but the place is really too small for a decent monster truck show. The exhaust from the vehicles was bad in the nosebleed seats. I know the monster trucks run on alcohol but the other vehicles don't. Really this should... More

Went to a concert at the concert hall. All went well till leaving the parking lot after the event. There were @ 200 cars in the my lot. Each car had to go through a single exit that had a card reader and a gate arm. Each car took about 45 seconds to get through the exit. Add 200 cars... More
