Seeing the Mavericks is very nice here. There isn't a bad seat. The arena isn't very big, so the upper seats are still very low. Go and support the Missouri Mavericks!

Ample free parking and close to freeway. It is of a size that makes it comfortable for people that don't like huge crowds of people. There is not a bad seat in the house because of the design and layout of the building.

The Independence Events Center offers free parking, a family community center for skating and Central Hockey League (CHL) games with the Missouri Mavericks. Prices are reasonable and a family friendly environment is encouraged.

Other than it being extremely cold, the rink was very well maintained. Nicest facility for skating that I have ever visited.

AKA, Mavericks hockey, Comets soccer, some concerts...etc. I've been here a couple of times and I don't feel like there is a bad seat in the house, and parking is free! We went to... More

IEC is one of the best venues in the KC area. I've been to a a few hockey games and a couple concerts and always enjoyed it. Every seat is close and although it is smaller than other arenas, you don't feel like you are sitting on your neighbors lap.And how can you beat free parking and reasonable priced concessions?

I love the events center to watch the Missouri Comets play. The space is very family friendly and it's a fun atmosphere. There are not enough people manned at the concession stands, so be prepared for a long wait for food or drink. I also think the marketing team needs to do a little more work on promotions/entertainment and the... More
