Here for a national Cheer competition. Very nice facility and pretty clean. The food service serving fresh made fruit smoothies was a treat. Bleachers had individual chairs with backs. As most convention centers lighting was not great for optimal photography. Sound was good and you could see fine. Location is close to several great hotels and abundant choices for food... More

I have been to many venues all over this Country and this place was one of the best! The easy parking access, the crowd flow and access areas, and the staff, made this a very pleasant experience.

I was there for the NHL All Star Weekend fan fair and the space was large enough for the event and the crowd and it was very conveniently located near Nationwide Arena.

I have attended the Arnold Classic as well as the NHL All-Star Weekend Fan Fair. Both events were extremely well done and organized. There are various attractions that take place here and I look forward to attending more of them.

Took my grandchildren and daughter in law to see the ice age exhibit. I thought $10.00 for parking was a bit steep, but I paid it. The exhibit itself was pretty nice. My grandson was very alert to the moving creatures that made noise. He was to young for the games and rides, but, I think he had a good... More

We came to meet Norman Reedus and traveled from Toledo. The parking was a little frustrating. Inside the venue it's very open and clean. Inside the event itself it gets crowded. Everyone was incredibly helpful and we had a great time. We'll definitely be returning next year.

Restrooms were very cold but did have soap, toilet paper and paper to dry hands and it was clean. Had one toilet that was leaking, but they eventually fixed it. Out in the large exhibit rooms it was also cold. It was a clean space. The food was so so at the venders.

The Convention Center is very nice. It was nice to have options for food open on the weekend there, tho some was kinda pricey. The workers there were very helpful and nice whenever I needed help.

Wizard World staff are the best! The convention was awesome. We were a little disappointed some of the bigger name stars had backed out and some vendors hadn't returned but it didn't change the experience.
