This would have been a 4 review had the food lines been a little shorter. Here are the positives: Very clean, helpful workers,shuttle, variety of vendors and places to eat. We were warned the food was pricey so we were prepared. The portions were larger than expected, so if you share with someone your money will go farther. I had the catfish platter for $ 10 and I split it with my husband. THe ice cream was a hit. $4 for a waffle cone or cup was not bad, and it was good ice cream. I thought the strawberry was the best. We were here for 2 days for a volleyball tournament. The cost for admission was $5 per person per day. What I liked about this venue was that there was a variety of food choices and places to sit in the main foyer and by the courts. they allowed food in the venue, but not outside food or coolers. The negatives were the cost for parking and lack of outside attractions and food places. They did provide a shuttle. I recommend staying close to the convention center and carpooling to the venue. We did this and saved money. It was about an 18minute walk to the hotel. There were some a little closer.
THis is a huge place so bring your walking shoes!
