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

I recently went to see Darius Rucker here. The venue was the perfect size for a concert. I don't think any seat was terrible. The acoustics were great. The staff was helpful. I would definitely go to another concert here.

So guess this place was just updated? Glad I wasn't here to see what it looked like before... I went here for a concert. First off, it's small - so every seat is a good seat. The negatives: how are there no luxury boxes running around this place in between a upper and lower seating area, I don't know. Make... More
