We enjoyed a concert here and Wringley Brothers Circus for the last time. Easy to get to and easy to get out. Nice venue!

Plenty of space for graduation and good opportunity for parking. Only item that could be better is the sound/audio system.

There were many guides to manage traffic, which was great! We had seats at the far end of the arena for the circus. We couldn't see about 1/3 of what happened and felt disengaged when the performers were at the west end. The high wire...More

I was impressed with the efficiency of getting into and out of parking, for the event. Even only one hour prior to the event, there was not a long walk from parking. The downside was food. It was hugely overpriced and pretty disappointing. For example...More
