“Not a bad seat in the house”
Reviewed March 11, 2012

A nice size venue. It's intimate, but not too small. All seats are good seats for any event that I attended.

“Nice place!”
Reviewed January 25, 2012

Parking was good. Needs more outdoor benches to sit on while waiting for the facility to open. Lots of steps to climb within the facility. OK comfort on the seating. Women's restroom nice size.

“Great fun with the kids!”
Reviewed January 14, 2012

My family and I went to see UD vs. Temple a few weeks ago and it was a good game. The seating appropriate and the refreshments were your standard... really salty popcorn, hot dogs, pretzels, etc. The parking was awesome--I say that because it was adequate and it didn't take forever to get out of the parking lot. There was some order to everyone leaving even though there weren't any officials conducting traffic (it probably would have been nice to have a few official people directing people out, just to be helpful). Overall, I'd return with my family to see more games and I preferred the chair back seats to the bench seats.
