the seats were fine and auditorium was well suited for the venue. Sound was very good. The facility was sort of limited on restrooms and snacks.

I always wondered why the Family arena only had a couple of thousand people max at any of their attractions and now I know. My wife, daughter ,son-in-law and 2 grandkids attended the Jeff Dunham concert which was excellent in spite of the arenas staff and parking lot clowns. We had a nice dinner close to the arena (about 4... More

We just attended the Jeff Dunham show the evening of Feb 7. Driving from downtown St Charles down 5th st we entered a line of two lane traffic that mostly sat for the next hour and a half to go one and a half miles trying to get into the parking lot. Since the arena is on the left, we... More

I do not have any complaints about the show itself. It was fabulous! However, getting into and out of the parking lot is total chaos. It took over 90 minutes to go what should have taken 5 minutes. We have been stuck going no where for over 30 minutes trying to get out of the parking lot. Several restrooms were... More

Ever wonder why there have been several teams, hockey, arena football, not able to make it here?? Went to the chill game and the entire experience was bad. First the security when you are going into the stadium is a guy asking if you have any knives or other illegal items. No random checking like they do at the real... More

Checked out a recent Chill game at this arena and was pleased with the experience. Tickets were reasonable (which is always nice for a family outing!), parking was reasonable and souveniers even weren't crazy high. Kids enjoyed the game and were happy to have seats close to the action. The facility was clean, although some of the staff could have... More

The staff of the St. Charles Chill were friendly and very hospitable. The area was large for minor league hockey and I hope they fill it someday. The food & drink selection could use some expansion. Some of the arena staff are new to hockey and don't understand some of the traditions; but I think they will get it with... More

The arena overall is very easy to get in and out. The seating is fine. The problem is the food offered is not great. I suggest and better choice in eats and good coffee!

This venue has always been clean and well-kept when we visited. Parking is a bit awkward but it's not too bad. The only problem we have had is getting out of the lot if there's a big crowd. It gets really backed up at the lights, so make sure you know what lane you need to be in.
