Attended this venue to see a music concert. Great location close to numerous hotels and eateries. The venue itself was clean and easily accessible with large comfy seats. Plenty of adjacent parking if required but we had an 8 min gentle walk to our hotel.

A Poorly managed asset. Who OWNS this terrible place?

Pros
A/C was adequate
Box office personnel were helpful

Cons
Long lines at check in because they understaff general admission while devoting much effort to VIP access. No one to maintain the lines so people just walk to the front.

They close a portion of the arena during concerts which makes walking in the arena a crowded disaster. Not enough concessions or workers. Filthy conditions with trash piled high. No water available. NONE. Too many paramedics for when you fall out because of dehydration but NO access to free water. At concessions you are forced to order $4 bottled water that they then poor in a paper cup for you. RIP OFF.

BATHROOMS WERE FILTHY AND MANY WERE OUT Of ORDER. DUCT TAPE SHOWS THAT THEY ARE NOT EVEN PERFORMING BASIC MAINTENANCE. WHO OWNS THIS PLACE?

Exiting is another crowded nightmare with no assistance from the STAFF that are there for reasons unknown.

Too many drunks. 1 customer should get 1 beer only.

Again, who owns this place? And why is water not freely accessible? Dehydration is a real possibility.

Breathalyzers and arrests for public drunkenness should be mandatory.

Who is responsible for this place?

The Colonial Life Arena offers several large conference rooms with good acoustics. The center is well kept with clean restrooms and vending areas for snacks and drinks. Limited parking is available on the street with more space in nearby parking garages.

We came in with only two meet and greet passes for an event but three tickets. I was travelling with two young sons and the Staff went above and beyond to make us comfortable while still following guidelines. Snacks are well priced and bathrooms were clean. Even up in the 200 level we had a great view!

We went to the 7/7/18 Imagine Dragons concert. Very nice facility. Easy to find one's way around. Very clean. Located near many restaurants and hotels within walking distance. Good security.

Was there for a graduation. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Seating was great. Parking can be challenging at times, depending on the event so arrive early to park in the parking lots across the street. Very convenient to get to.

We attended a niece's high school graduation here on a Monday. It was hassle free parking, especially for physically challenged as we had our parents with us. They had golf cart type shuttle that took the groups to and from the stadium.

The interior was nicely air conditioned and very clean. We got seats near the floor so we got a good view. They do have large TV for people that were sitting high. This is a nice facility

Came here for my daughter's graduation from USC. Ended up sitting pretty high, but we had great seats and could see everything well. Seats were comfortable.
