Nice Arena

I have seen a few hockey games here. Stadium is in good shape, nice landscaped little entryway. Seats are fairly new, everything was clean, even the bathrooms were decent!

I am in the Rabobank Arena at least once a month. There is a large lobby, plenty of doors for entry, and all seats are easy to see the stage. The arena also has a very nice Cafe, and the restrooms have very easy access to include handicap..

While out of school, I decided I wanted to drive up to watch my SD Gulls play BAK. It was an awful game, but this review is purely about arena: This is a very nice arena, especially considering Bakersfield is an absolute wasteland... The worst part about the arena is the services. I ordered a center ice ticket in terrace... More

As a Sports Venue I find it a great place to be!!! I've sat in seven (07) different locations and I've found not a bad seat in the house!!! Nose Bleed Section for the PBR... Great Seats to see it all!!! Condors Hockey... Sections 101, 108, 110 and 115 are all great areas to watch from!!!

We have been there abut a dozen times. Have enjoyed it every time. Only thing I wish could change is sometimes it's hard for us to stand in line for a long lengh of time waiting for doors to open. Wish the could take people in early if they needed.

Have seen a few rock groups here. Disturbed, Korn, Florida Georgia Line--sound was distorted.Does not have good sound system. I sat at different areas at all concerts. Same conclusion.

The arena isn't bad and its not real large so you can get a good seat. We enjoyed Disney on Ice and had great seats. Would definitely go back for a concert although I'm not sure how the sound would be. Seemed to have a lot of echo in the place.

Rabobank Theater is a great place to see a concert or a show. Great sound for a concert. I highly recommend it.
