“Show Up Early!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2012

Nice arena within easy walk from many downtown hotels. We went to a concert and had "Party Pit" tickets. The concert had many types of tickets: General Admission, Floor, VIP, and Party Pit. The workers had no idea which ticket lined up at what door. It was very aggravating, as the lines were huge and the walk between lines long. I asked workers at several places which line was the correct line and everyone had a different answers. All of the concert attendees were confused. You must have a wrist band to enter the floor and then a second wrist band to enter the pit. People were lining up at 2:00 to enter the floor, but we ended up in front of them. Security was lax at concert. My daughter ended up with cut and bruised knees from being pushed up against the fence. The floor of the arena was soooo wet with drinks at intermission that I was afraid I was going to fall. However, concert was great!!!
