Very nice arena! People was very happy & helpful. There was plenty of people to help & escort you to your seats!! Seats was a little cramped but the overall experience was Great!! If there's another event here would definitely come back. Concession are a bit on the high end. So just bring more money for snacks!!

The Center has the easiest access to the arena of any NBA facility we have visited. Wide and multiple entry locations. Sight lines to floor were good, even from front of upper bowl. OKC's downtown was clean and easy to find our way around.

This is the best venue hands down for NBA basketball no place like this and I have been to several arena's. The star power of our OKC thunder makes it a joy to watch each and every game. My complaint would be the leg room in the seats sucks I have 6'7" and have issues with my knees being crammed... More

Great venue with good concessions and lots of rest rooms. Parking can be a challenge so try the Santa Fe Parking Garage a couple of blocks away. Ask anyone how to get there and they'll likely be going to the area too. Ear plugs, binoculars, and proper team colors are welcome in the cheap seats. Wait did I say cheap...not... More

This past winter, we had the pleasure to see 5 or 6 OKC Thunder games. Our sons had gone together to buy 4 season tickets. Unfortunately, they were on the 2nd row from the top, but right at the free throw line. We throughly enjoyed the times we went and the hospitality staff and cheerleaders were outstanding. Then in the... More

In a great part of town surrounded by restaurants and bars.Cool to walk by and see the home of Kevin Durant and the new home of Billy Donovan. As a Cats fan, Im glad to see that he has left Gainsville! I will try to pop in and catch a game next time Im in town on business.

I attended North American Youth Congress at this arena. The staff was very friendly and professional. The entire arena was amazingly clean. The bathrooms were spacious and nice. It's very easy to walk around and navigate without getting lost.
