We saw Disney on Ice. The movement around the aren and its parking lot was very organized. Show was excellent as were the seats and condition of the arena. Not a bad seat in the house.

I watched a high school state championship game tonight. They have a very nice court and the facilities are nice. Like any other sports arena/stadium all food and beverages are expensive. I paid $6.75 for an Italian sausage sandwich. The place is clean, workers friendly...More

Great venue, low prices, good seats everywhere, great for the participants, great for the fan, food a bit expensive and a somewhat cumbersome entrance. They do a fantastic job on working for seating for handicap persons. Lots of fun

First time I had been to this arena which is right next to Hershey park and it was a fun night. We had seats 7 rows from the ice right behind the net so we could see all the action. The food looked good but...More

I've seen many events at the Giant Center and I don't have any complaints about the venue itself. But it's important to be mindful of where you park. If you don't pay very close attention, it's easy to lose your vehicle.

The place hosts a lot of great events from Bears hockey to the Harlem Globetrotters. Seating is relatively comfortable and there really isn't a bad seat in the place. I have this as an average review due to the lack of concessions they had open....More

As far as I know it looks as if the Hershey Bears will play. You may want to check out their website.
I am going to the Trump Rally on Friday, November 3rd. Are folding chairs permitted to use outside during the wait in line and can they be taken inside? Is there a place to leave them if they can't be taken inside? Thank you, Wanda S
