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.

It was like any other arena, it was good. I don't have any complaints. :D There isn't anything else to say.

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

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
