Always an event going on. They also host lots of free events. Very organized and well maintained venue with really good restaurants within walking distance.

So this place is clean and nice and fairly well organized. But if you go here to see a concert... Plan on standing in line for a t-shirt for about an hour, plan on it taking at least two hours to get out of the parking lot once the concert is over. And the sound quality is so so.

We attended a conference here this September. The building was clean and well managed. It has big screens to insure everyone can see whats going on from any distance/location. The food available was a bit disappointing and expensive for what you get, but what you would expect for a large stadium like this.

I was surprised to find that the seats were actually comfortable. The big screens in the centre allow you to feel like you are almost right in front of what is going on. Perfect venue for such a large crowd.

Most of our experiences are for Mavs games. Lots of concerts, have attended an ice skating show and D. Trump rally. Good parking but pricy.

The AA Center did an excellent job hosting nearly 10,000 Nerium Brand Partners for our Annual Conference. They added healthier food options since our last event held there!!! Thank you. The janitorial staff does a fantastic job. There is no cleaner arena in the country. Thank you.

This is a great place to watch the Dallas Stars or any other event.The outside huge screen is a fun/great gathering place. I recommend all travelers who have time to see a game, etc. or tour this facility it's worth the time.
