Pirates game

We came to Portland too see a Pirates game. We were able to get 3 tickets in the 2nd row in a corner with taxes for about $40. If you have ever looked into a NHL game and found... read more

Come on how can you not visit the place Elvis Presley would have played the day he died? Just knowing they still have a stash of tickets from his 1977 concert inside wows me! How can you pass up the Portland Pirates? It's hockey! The greatest game ever! The food is outstanding! Season tickets behind the players box! Cheering your... More

We came to Portland too see a Pirates game. We were able to get 3 tickets in the 2nd row in a corner with taxes for about $40. If you have ever looked into a NHL game and found it too expensive this is a great way to go. Parking was attached to the center, $7. Great time was had

If the place has been redone, someone should demand a refund. The steerage section of a third rate discount airline with screen windows has softer, more comfortable seats with more leg room. Stairs are narrow with small concrete steps, and hazardous - if you have walking issues, just ask for a handicapped seat, period. Food service was dismal, slow and... More

Went to a Portland Pirates game for the first time since the renovations. We had a blast and it was nice to see all the improvements, especially the restrooms. Nice work CCCC!

what a crap show, of course it was during their high usage days, mine as well. Me and Barker burned a dime bag (1/4 oz) at the show. Also saw the Mariners win their first Calder Cup the same year (their first). Later saw a few more big concerts there, then scaled down and went to Kayo's, Geno's and The... More

completely redone, nice and clean every where but in redoing the seating i believe they made the seats smaller to get 1 more seat per row. felt crowed. Also prices were up.

If I were a resident of Cumberland County I would be a little upset. 1) Consession lines blocked movement in the concourse, the fire marshal should be proud of that sign off. Also in the event of a real emergency us elderly and infirmed are toast! 2) My wife expressed a concern with the female restroom, 12 toilets down to... More

Too large a venue, noisy neighbors, too many distracting "screens" lit up all around me (watch the show!)

I attended the Bryan Adams concert with a friend on 5/4/14, at the newly renovated Cumberland Country Civic Center. I had not been here since seeing KD Lang and Tony Bennett perform in 2001. I voted against the citizen-funded multi-million dollar upgrade of the CCCC a couple of years back, though it certainly needed some work. I just don't believe... More
