I was there for the 2014 NCAA Wrestling Championships. It is a nice arena but somewhat small compared to others that have hosted. The Suites were excellent but the upper level seating was very narrow and steep. The food was typical arena food, pricey but got the job done.

Chesapeake is a great place to see a professional sporting event, and there's no better event to see in the winter in OKC than the Thunder. Unfortunately, the Thunder didn't cooperate and fell in a rare regular season loss - just our luck. All the same, the energy, vibe and fun of the place is not found in other places.... More

My husband and I traveled to the CEA last month to see a show. We have been to a handful of concerts, shows and arenas around the OK, AR, MO area and this by far was the best facility we have been to. A parking garage was available right next door for $20. A little steep but SO worth it!... More

I love this arena because of its layout and easy accessibility. All seats are good ones and food/beverage options are pretty good. Different levels have different options, so if you aren't finding what you want ask someone or try a different floor. Full service dining is available as well as booths and carts. Thunder gear is for sale on all... More

Been to Thunder games and many concerts and have to say this is a great arena. No bad seats here and the staff and volunteers are extremely friendly and helpful. Last concert was Pearl Jam in fall 2013 and got to sit on the floor for a Thunder game before the playoffs.

Despite being female and alone, I have to say that I felt so very welcomed...from the staff, to the patrons, it was a terrific atmosphere. The facility is clean and well attended to, the fans were great! Loved being there and even managed to get... More

If you are in town for a quick vacation - no matter the reason - and the Thunder are playing, do yourself a favor and get tickets to a Thunder game! The team is loved by the city, and the fans get behind the team with fervor. If the Thunder isn't playing while you are in town, the arena also... More

Not many bad seats in the house. Parking wasn't that bad if you don't mind paying a couple dollars. Has plenty of vendors inside serving many different taste's. all in all, a very good place to attend sporting events or concerts

20 of us went to an OKC game in December. Parking was hard, and we had to walk in the ice, but it was free parking. We sat at the very top and it was still good seats!

I've come here for the Thunder Games & concerts & this arena never seems to disappoint! The food is great (try the Fried Pickles) & the staff is very friendly. Thanks for a great season! THUNDER UP!
