“Great for big events”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

Only got to see one small part of it so really can't make a better review of it as I was here for a NYS exam. Place definitely can handle large groups of people.

“The Oncenter for entertainment”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2012

The Oncenter offers a variety of entertainment. Parking is very convenient. You can access the Oncenter from the parking ramp by the walkway-no need to go outside. there is alwasy a wide range of ticket prices. The seating set-up is excellent so you dont have to purchase the most expensive tickets to have a good experience. Staff is helpful. Souvenirs are pricey, as is food. Overall, the Oncenter gives a good expereince for whatever entertainment you attend.

I am the Director of a Gala that raises money for a regional medical center. We had our annual event at the OnCenter last night and am happy to report that the venue gets better every year.
