“Horrible getaway!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

Went during Disney on ice! Horrible getaway when you sit with in the fist set of rows. Yes they are of course the best sits. When the shows is over the headache begins! You have to fight your way up to the top!! And the traffic to get out is just another story. I have also sat up far by the ceiling rows by the birds and there is a horrible experience where u barely hear the show let alone see it. It could have been defenetly been designed better! With easy exits for all sitting sections.

“Go see an event here.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

Solid sports stadium. We saw Radiohead live here, though I imagine an "El Heat" game would probably be great as well. As stadiums go, it's nice, and in a solid location to go out after if it so tickles your fancy.

Great place for venues like concerts and games. I love coming here for the shows, as it is very organized, clean and spacious.

“Great arena... SCARY LOCATION and Surrounding area!”

Great for concerts and events. Drinks and food are $$$$... What ever you do don't get lost and if you do DON'T ASK FOR DIRECTIONS unless your packing some protection!

“Hot arena and team”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

A great venue for basketball. The seats are easy to find though some were very high. The line to get in was long but moved along. A good selection of food though a little bit expensive like most stadiums. Staff was very accommodating. Parking can be tough.
