I was here for a conference during some of the coldest weather this month. It was absolutely freezing in all of the conference rooms and halls. It was so cold that my nose was frozen! There needs to be more vending options, most of the machines (2 of the 5 machines I saw) wouldn't even work! We also froze walking... More

We go here occasionally for a concert. Relatively easy to get to with ample parking. Staff is always friendly and eager to help.

My cousin played here for States. Good venue. Great seating. Just wish they had the escalators working. I'm on oxygen and made it hard to walk up very steep steps.

I attended a concert in September and found it to be an awful facility. To start with, the line to get into the place was unacceptable.

I was at the civic center for a Rodney Carrington show. This venue provides great seating to everyone! While in the area you must find other attractions as well. Charleston is an undiscovered gem.

I have attended concerts, NBA exhibition games, the WVIAC tournament and other events in this arena and not once did I ever have a bad seat. It is located very close to many fine restaurants for convenience also.

We were one of the fortunate couples to "win" tickets to the show. We drove almost 400 miles to get there. What an experience. AR very well organized. Hundreds of volunteers to make sure you're headed in the right direction. Easily accessible.
