Took my daughter to WWE Smackdown event and it was a lot of fun. The arena was easy to get to and there was restaurants close to the arena to grab something to eat before the event. The arena itself was nice and I did not think the prices were bad for a sporting event.

I only go to the arena to see the hawks. It is an older venue but there are no bad seats in the arena. The good thing it is easy to get here by taking the Marta and the CNN food court is right next to the arena! GO HAWKS!

Professional women's basketball can make for a fun family outing. High skill levels, fun fan experiences, a lively crowd, user friendly ticket prices, and a welcoming atmosphere make this a worthwhile outing if you like hoops.

This was awesome...such a thrill. My wife enjoyed it wayyyy more than she anticipated and our son was so excited to see Grave Digger. I will say printing your tickets in advance will save you such a journey to will call which is FAR. I also recommend taking Marta if at all possible as the price of event parking and... More

Good arena by any standards. The bathrooms are pretty clean and the staff is always fast and very nice. We have been a few times and I think this was one of the better ones. Depending on where you park and whether or not you take Marta, be sure to ask what is the best exit. The staff is very... More

I've been here for 2 events: Fleetwood Mac in December 2014, and Amy Schumer in April 2016. Both were great, sound was great, and could see well. Great place.

Great choice in food choices and it is easy to move around in the arena. good entertainment prior to the game. All the ushers we encountered were extremely friendly. Limited hours to buy tickets at the ticket office but still a good... More

The upper decks are incredibly steep, and you can't see much. Acoustics not great either. I saw Streisand, and it was TERRIBLE, though extremely expensive!

Great concert venue! We saw Bruce Springsteen here. Even though we didn't have the best seats, they were pretty good! Loved the show!

Make sure you pack some extra patience to go. But when you come to see a game that should be expected, long lines, rowdy happy people. If you're willing to go past these facts, then you'll have an awesome time. You will be served well, beer will flow, pretzels will be to your requests: salted, sweet, or mustered. Make sure... More
