I recently attended a concert at The Schott. The event was sold out, but the abundance of parking lots and staff to direct people kept things moving nicely. We sat in the "Terrace" Level, which is a nice name for the Upper Bowl. The seating here is tight, and if you are bothered by heights, like many of the people... More

I have been here for many events--sporting and concerts. The trouble with this venue, as opposed to the superior Nationwide Arena, is the upper level seating. It is way too far from the floor, as the upper deck does not overhang the lower as it does at Nationwide Arena. Avoid upper bowl seating. It is a decent concert venue, though... More

Just saw the Cirque du Soleil Michael Jackson Immortal World Tour here and loved it! Easy access, parking was simple and directed very well. I would definitely see another show here!

Went to the Ohio vs Ohio State basketball game on 11/12/2013. The arena is nice. The seats were kind of small, however this was probably due to being in the first row of permanent seats and having the cup holders in the arm rests. These arm rests in this row were removable by sliding them forward however.The site lines were... More

Loved this place!!!!! My first visit and was not disappointed with the experience. Attended the American Idol on Tour Concert and it was great. The sound system is fabulous and seating is great. I watch the Buckeyes play basketball games on TV, but would love to experience a live game in arena. Parking was good and all employees did an... More

In February, my Wife and I visited OSU to see The Who. We were about to be married so this was a pre Honeymoon trip. We drove 12 hours to see them. When we got to our seats we noticed a giant bar blocking the stage. My Wife never complains but I had to make this a better experience for... More

Attended a concert at the Schottenstein Center and sat in section 106. The view was terrific as there was a stage in the center of the floor at this concert. As everyone stood almost the entire concert it was crowded in the row. The seats are very close together so everyone in our row was over one seat which led... More

I've been to the Schott only for college hockey games, so this review is primarily about that experience. It's a nice building, on the whole. It's modern, clean, free parking for hockey, OSU spirit shop on site, they've improved the variety at the concession stands over the years. Also large. NHL-sized, in fact. Which is the downfall of the Schott... More

Very nice venue....the venue people were a little ill towards us. They had let everyone in but this one employee asked us how we got there and we tried to explain to him....well he escorted us out of there like we were common criminals.
