The arena was a great venue to see my Alma Meter win. I only wish the NCAA had more vendors of my school available for t-shirts. Also, no beer sales. Yet, I very much enjoyed the game

Easy to get to; free parking is awesome. Very reasonable ticket prices. Very clean, well maintained facility. We are lucky to have it in Evansville.

Went to see The Iceman hockey game. Very user friendly arena located in old downtown area. And parking was free!

Seats were great, and didn't have to pay an arm and a leg for them! Lines at concessions were short!

We had never been here so we were unsure about this venue, or parking or anything really. We arrived about 1 hour early and made a circle around the area following signs that said PARKING. We went past a couple of parking garages, and came back around the front of the stadium and went East again. Then turned back north at the next stop light a block over we found plenty of free parking. It was about the same distance as the rest of the parking lots and lit up well. A suggestion is not to arrive to early especially if it is cold unless you are fighting for a close up spot close to the stage. If you have a seat ticket there is no reason to stand in line. They normally will not open the doors until about 1 hour to 1 hr 15 minutes prior to the show. But this may vary. If you are over 21 you can go into the bar called the Stadium Club and stay warm if it is cold outside. When they open the doors, they did allow anyone over 21 to go through the the bar to gain access to the stadium! There are ushers to help you find your section and then more in the sections to help you find your seats. The seats are somewhat cramped even for an average sized guy, both in shoulder room and leg room. You have to stand up every time someone next to you leaves or comes back to their seat. The upper level seats were nice fold down like some of the older style cushioned theater seats. The security is great, and they even had Evansville Police, and Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Deputies there as well. You will see a high police presence which makes you feel pretty safe. They do serve alcohol at least for concerts. I really did not have any complaints. They serve food and drinks as well. After you leave the center and are leaving the parking lot police were there to assist in directing traffic out as well. It doesn't take long for traffic to clear, the main issue I saw was that pedestrians crossing to the North of the center walked across in front of traffic, and the drivers became upset and on car nearly struck a group of walkers. I would for sure return for another event.
