This is a great little venue for a variety of events. The Maverick's, our local CHA hockey team use this as their home ice. The seating is all "close to the glass" and there's not a bad seat in the place. It's also a good place for concerts. The arena is smaller and more intimate the the gigantic stadiums and... More

There is not a bad seat in the house. Love the energy from such a small venue. Truly enjoy going to this place for events.

Not a bad seat in the house!! All cushioned chairs with great sight lines for the action. Concessions are reasonably priced, just like the tickets. Parking is free. Always a great time with fun give-a-ways and lots of laughs. Oh and did I mention it was HOCKEY!!

The ice rink at the event center is one of our favorite family activities. We love to skate during their public ice skate times. It is just as fun as ice terrace but much less crowded. It is indoors so we can skate year round. We did a birthday party here in June that was a blast.

Tickets to acts who perform there are no less than what you pay at Sprint Center but there is where the similarities stop. Even the best seats have no cup rests and if you have the misfortune to be setting behind a row full of Heavyweights the seats in the row in front of your may be in your lap.... More

My sons play there; a great organization with excellent coaches. Excellent fan facilities. Would benefit from better team locker facilities.

The IEC is the perfect size for events. I am a season ticket holder at the Missouri Mavericks' hockey games and there is not a bad seat in the house and the prices are very affordable, especially on the ends. The games are all so fun and the sound system is great! I have been to a few other events... More

I like to attend the Maverick's Hockey games at the Independence Events Center. It's a family affair...so take the kids. Watch for discounts. I usually attend with friends and we have a great time watching the hockey game. There isn't a "bad" seat in the house and the price is right. My friends and I have great, reasonably priced food,...

We visited the Harry Truman homestead on a Monday. There are only 8 tour slots available each 1/2 hour. We arrived about 11:30 am, and were able to get 3 tickets for the 2:30 pm tour (these are free if you have an America the Beautiful Senior or Disabled Access card, otherwise $5.00). There are lots of sites to see... More
