I love this venue and will travel from Wichita just to see my favorite bands. Within walking distance of some awesome bars, hotels and food. I stay in the area and visit the arena about 5 times a year. Can't wait to go back!

The Chesapeake Energy Arena is a wonderful place! Security was on point getting everyone checked and inside quickly. The arena set up allows people to flow to their designated areas without congestion. The game was close and went into overtime but the Thunder couldnt pull it off this time. We'll get them next time.

My wife and I were given tickets to watch the Thunder and were not sure even to take them. Neither of us had ever been to professional basketball game, didn't like watching them on TV, and don't follow the sport, except very loosely back the Thunder - especially Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook. They both reflect so well on the... More

The staff was very helpful and kind. The concert was amazing, and the line for the women's room was nonexistent. Lines for food and beverages moved very quickly also. The men's room always had a line, and the band merchandise could have been split into 2 locations to reduce crowding.

Hoping this the right area! If is, used be called Ford Center, maybe only four block walk from Sheraton Oklahoma City Hotel! Went in years 2003, 2005, and 2007! Took a tour of it! Interesting how they can take the floors and redo them from one event to next! Went July of 2003, 2005, and 2007, so this may not... More

Great venue with comfortable seats, plenty of food and drink options, and nice restrooms. There is plenty of parking close by and it is close to Bricktown!

This is a well designed facility, as usual, they tried to get a few too many seats in the building, little tight for full grown folks, the view is really good at all levels, and when you go outside the arena up stairs, the bar area's are great.

This arena hosts concerts as well as the Oklahoma City Thunder basketball home games. Lots of activities outside the arena to do before the game and security is on hand. This arena is large. We sat in the Loud City section. This was a little too steep for my personal comfort zone. The way the seats are arranged in the... More

We attended the James Taylor concert at the 'Peake - have always enjoyed the atmosphere while attending the Thunder games so wondered how it would be for a concert venue. It was excellent. We waited to get tickets so ended up with what we thought would be bad seats but they were not. The view and the sound were both... More
