“Giant Center a Great Venue for Hockey”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

The Giant Center is the perfect venue for the AHL Hershey Bears hockey team. The facility is clean, comfortable and there isn't a bad seat in the house. They make the atmosphere very family friendly considering it is a hockey crowd. The food is a bit pricey but pretty good. The only downside is the parking. Leaving the venue on a busy night takes longer than it should because the parking attendants are just in the way.

“Wonderful concert venue in the midstate.”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

My wife and I have attended numerous concerts at Giant Center. This arena is spacious, climate controlled, comfortable seating and the acoustics are very good. Parking in usually not a problem. Food and snacks, however, can be rather pricey.

“Great Place For A Concert Or A Hockey Game!”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

I was here for the Hits Deep Tour concert and it was a great experience. This place has great seating, there is not a bad seat in the house. I could get great pictures from section 126; which is almost to "nose bleed section." My only complaint would have to be how close the seats are, so you are basically bumping elbows or shoulders, but that is expected I guess...I would come back for any concert that I'm intested in and also in price range or even a Hershey Bears game since I am a fan of hockey. Even the prices for the hockey game isn't bad at all. Food is very pricey though, so my advice is to eat before going to an event.

“Good venue”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

We have been here for concerts and hockey games. Acoustics vary from concert to concert depending on who is playing. It is usually easy to see the stage and they are very good about pointing out any obstructed areas. Watching the Hershey Bears is always fun.

“Concert at Giant Center”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

Arrive early to get a good parking space
$8 to park and the food is expensive.
Get tickets close to the stage or it is hard to see the concerts.
