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!

I love, love, love watching basketball games at the 'Peake. It is a full fan experience from the moment one enters the arena. Nice facilities and the staff has always been helpful. Well done!

The Chesapeake Areana with the Thunder Basketball is an unbelievable place to be. I had been to other NBA games but none come close to the atmosphere at the Peake. Do yourself a favor and GO! If you get tickets up in LOUD CITY, BRING EAR PLUGS!!!

If you're a sports fan you have to go to a Thunder game at least once. The crowd is unreal. Honestly the best fans in basketball.

Well designed arena with good visibility from all the seats. VERY loud crowd when the Thunder's playing. Classy fans for the most part, just avoid anyone wearing ou gear. Sooners tend to be jerks wherever they are. Access to arena is easy for everyone, including wheelchair. Elevators can be hard to get on immediately after a game ends but plenty... More

You would think when someone wants to build a huge arena there would be FREE Parking along with those pricey tickets to attend!
