Good sound, decent sight lines toward the stage, limited menu of foods/drinks but at least they had the standard items, and seriously not enough bathroom capacity for a 5000-6000 person crowd. The potty lines crowded the general passageways around main arena.

We had floor seats, the way they handled allowing you to go in and out with wrist bands was awesome! We had great seats and got to go to the front. For a concert that made me feel really old (old teenagers I should say we all were), I still acted like a teenager. They had reasonable prices for drinks... More

Since there is no public Metro Link to get to this location you are stuck paying whatever they decide to charge for parking.

This arena is where most of the local school districts hold their high school graduations every year. It holds a lot of people. There are all kinds of concerts and sports things going on all year long. It has become a little ran down over the years, but it's still a decent place to go for an event.

This is a great venue but the entertainment that is booked is average to below average. I have seen a few artist's or kids events but it doesn't often have anything worth going to.

We went to the Chill hockey game. It was the first game we took our daughter. I can say it was good value for money. Standard arena food, so eat before or after you go!

Seating is awful the aisles are fine as line as nobody is sitting in the seats. But if seats are occupied and you need to get by you take your life into your hands expecially for older people, when I was there one man fell over the seats into the next isle (thankfully he wasn't hurt). Also, steps are too... More

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
