Really a great experience for a game or concert. The upper arena seats are really up there though so you may want to go the extra expense of staying in the lower arena for whatever you are going for.

I had a wonderful time. Although my seats were upper arena, we could see everything going on. I am looking forward to the seats with backs in the future.

Wanted to see the arena. Instead saw a trade show. Better off going to campus and visiting the practice facility, which will be nicer than most arenas in the country. OK Calipari, guess I have to go to the Dunkin Doghnuts on the Jersey shore...More

There is not a bad seat in the arena. Entrance and exit is fast and efficient. The sound for the concert was impressive. (Foo Fighters) and access to food an drink was quick and easy.

I have only had to pay for parking if there for an event, and then it was an attendant when pulling into the parking area not leaving. I think 20-25 is the most I have ever had to pay to park in the Rupp lots.
