While in Glendale we went to see a Coyote's Game against the Vancouver Canucks. Very nice arena, good ticket prices & friendly staff. There are lots of restaurants & stores around the arena. Well worth the visit.

Saw an Oiler and Coyote game. The oilers lost but it was still a great time. Have been to many different arenas for hockey, this is my second favorite arena, minus the scoreboard. The scoreboard top half looked like it was from 1980. Loved that fans howl!!

It was an R rated show for sure but the old lady still knows how to entertain the crowd. She can't dance like she used to but she has a very loyal following of fans and they create quite an atmosphere. I loved the venue and will have to come back and watch some hockey in the future.

Nice to go to an arena, regardless of an event, with clean seats and clean bathrooms. Not a bad view in the place. Stairs are not too steep and seats are fairly comfortable. It is a fairly big arena but small footprint. Easy to get in and out of with plenty of parking around it.

It's an arena so what makes it good or bad? Just a couple things and Gila River Arena does them well enough. Getting in and out and to and from. Signage and parking are well laid out and easy to access, especially for those out-of-towners. This was odd, they had 2 people at the front gate, one checking your tickets... More

I travel for sporting events all over the country and this is one of my favorite hockey arenas. Not a bad seat in the place. I was lucky enough to sit on the glass this trip and it was amazing. The staff is so guest service oriented and always willing to help esp a guy like me from out of... More

Home of the Arizona Coyotes Hockey Team and venue for major concerts. Comfortable seats with good sight lines. Attended recent Madonna concert, which I really enjoyed. Food & drinks are typically over-priced as with many arenas. Better to eat/drink at one of nearby restaurants/bars instead. My biggest complaint was parking. I had been here before for the Super Bowl and... More

We were here to watch a boxing match and it was my first time in this arena. I like the fact that the arena is in a huge commercial and shopping area and there are many parking options. My advice is find parking around the shopping malls and park for free instead of paying $15 or so for area parking.... More

As part of our vacation we went to see Pens VS Coyotes last Sat 10/10. Nice arena, we had seats Sect 121 Row H, nice view of ice & just below line where you could get puck to the face. I was wearing my Pens shirt & no-one was rude or mean to me, all around nice fans. Food as... More
