“Good time”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

My daughter was a state fair queen candidate a few years ago. I have watched the fair queen pageant several years. It is always very nice, although the contestants shouldn't have to walk in the dirt with their nice formals on even once they have been dismissed and not in the final 10, etc... Too harsh on their nice gowns.

“Good Ice but Under Renovation”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

After years of skating at this coliseum, which did need a facelift, it's getting one. Hope the ice will be just as good for skating as it was before, very smooth and flat, almost no ripples. We'll see.

Great location for a variety of hosts. Not too far and not too close. Nice to visit and easy to find.

“Great memories here”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

My parents would bring me here when I was very young to see Holiday on Ice Shows, Ringling Brothers Circus shows and others I've probably forgotten about. i always enjoyed the events here during the State Fair. I remember duing the State Fair, there used to be an organ grinder and his monkey. if you gave the monkey a silver coin, he would bite it, put it in his pocket and tip his hat to you. If you gave him a penney, seems like I remember he either rejected it, or he put it in his pocket without tiping his hat. Average score is mostly for the neglected condition the State of Indiana keeps it in.

“Neat”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

This place is neat and has a history. My sister-in-law saw the Beatles there. I love to watch the Ice play their games here. We usually go in and watch the animals during the State Fair as well.
