Always has some event to capture your attention. All very good quality and very well priced. The establishment itself is gorgeous.

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.

Enjoyed AR at the civic center; however, did not like being exited out the back of the facility. The area was unattractive with no sidewalk, and looked like a cargo loading/ unloading area.

The positive side of this facility is that the staff throughout the four day conference I attended were exceptionally kind, helpful, and efficient. The facility itself seems to be quite old, and some of the more modern "bells and whistles" that one might expect at a convention center weren't there. The wifi, while free for conference attendees, seemed expensive if... More

Various functions, concerts, programs, concerts and other social functions are held here regularly. The building is a bit dated, and if there is a huge crowd the bathrooms aren't the most aromatic place to visit. But, overall I have seen wonderful shows at this venue, and have attended various functions here as well.

We were here most recently for the state basketball tournament. Also in Dec 2013 for state cheerleading competition. Nice venue for those activities and not a bad seat. Many years ago, attended a concert and have seen a few "ice shows". I'm a huge Daughtry fan and went to concerts in VA, PA, OH, KY, FL & WV (Huntington) but... More

The facility itself is outdated and just has a dirty feel to it. There is plans to remoldel so I'm excited to see what that brings. It's big enough to attract big names but also small enough that there really isnt a bad seat in the house.

This place is a great for a concert. It was my first time there, so when I walked into the lobby, I had to figure out that the entrance to the coliseum was upstairs. The escalators didn't work, so everybody had to climb the stairs and get in a long line for security. The lines looked like they would take... More
