One of the best arenas

I have been to many arenas in the nba and only a few are better than the Mavericks arena. Biggest monitor and not many places have a fan experience like the AAC

Of course the electricity of the place is dependent on the team or group. If the Mac or stars are winning then the arena is rocking. If the music group is good then the arena is electric. All in all the AAC is as good as any in the USA

We watched the Dallas Stars V St Louis Blues and had a great evening. Drinks and food are expensive but that goes with the experience. We had cheap seats but it gave you an aerial view!

We went to see the Mavs play the Rockets and we couldn't believe the southern hospitality of the American Airlines Center, it really is true what is said about the South, they have impeccable manners and hospitality. We had a blast at the game, from the free bobble heads on entry to the hot dogs and pretzels to the atmosphere... More

While the inner halls and corridors can be a bit confusing at first, the friendly staff is always willing to help with a smile. Getting in and out is a seamless event. If you are in for a Mavs game, they put on quite a show.

It is huge. It is totally updated. Honestly, I felt like I was in Vegas inside this coliseum. We went to an NBA game. The seats were great. Sound perfect. Everything was A+!

Came to see a hockey game, Stars vs. the Predators! This arena is one of the best sports venue I have ever been! Clean and spacious and the staff are very helpful. The elevator to the Flagship level had an operator who guided where you need to go. Lots of restaurants within short walk and also an onsite restaurant Pira!... More

I've been to 14 NHL venues and this is by far the most opulent. Great video boards, roomy seats, plentiful vendors and bathrooms. And the Stars' game experience is pretty good with the star being lowered and all. Great place to see a hockey game.

While the American Airlines Center is used for a variety of activities and events , it is generally thought of as Dallas' downtown sports facility for the Stars and the Mavericks. When built it was a nice venue for the old center which has since been torn down, however there are many such centers now throughout the country that can... More
