“An awesome place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

Went to a Pacers playoff game last year and the atmosphere was electric! There is not really a bad seat in the house except for maybe the balcony (players look like ants), but all seats have unobstructed views. The food is reasonably priced ($5-$7 per person for food and drink) and tickets are decent too. Plenty of parking available around the fieldhouse area with just a short walk to get inside. Will be back this season for a game or two!

“Very well laid out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

The architects and engineers did a great job laying out the floor plan. It is very easy to find your seat and crowd control is very organized. The employees have always been very friendly, and the architecture is beautiful!

“The best place to watch basketball--ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

Everything about Conseco (now Banker's Life Fieldhouse) is top-notch. The best in the nation, hands down. I could go on and on, but why? Trust me--if you are a basketball fan, this is the ultimate place.

“A great venue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

From the parking (across a skybridge in an adjoining garage) to the food (pretty good, albeit a little pricy, but with lots of variety), to the access to seats (an escalator takes you to the upper level -- no need to climb stairs), this is an easy place to see a game.

Things I like best: The admissions lobby is open and spacious, the gift shop is large and well-stocked, and the seats are roomy with clear lines of sight.

My favorite place to sit (other than in my company's suite, which is one of the best seats in the house, but I only have occasional access) is on the club level. At some events, they take your order and serve you in your seat. At others, you have to serve yourself, but the food is close and pretty good for arena food.

And then there's the local color -- The guy in the wild head-to-toe crazy Pacers fan outfit who you just have to stop and stare at for a minute when he walks by, and the Fever fan who runs up and down the stairs near mid-court each time we score a three pointer. They're almost a show in themselves!

“It's Game Day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

A wonderful place to watch the Colt's win a football game. Plenty of nearby restrooms for family use. Good leg room between seats. Great view from any where in the house.
