This is a nice hockey arena located in downtown Halifax across from the Citadel. The arena looks pretty new. I was lucky while visiting Halifax for the first time, there was a hockey game between the Mooseheads the Huskies. I was at the Scotia Square Mall foodcourt and noticed there must be a hockey game that evening. It was convenient... More

After several attempts to attend hockey games/basketball games we realized that this was not a place to go to find comfortable seating. Very few venues are open for basketball, and there is no room in the seats. You are touching elbows with the people beside you, your needs ( and I have short legs) are pulled up in front of... More

I have been to a couple of events here,and found the facility to be a decent one. I enjoyed myself, but parking was a bit of an issue.

We attended the Halifax Tattoo this year. It was amazing and worth the drive from Ontario. A must see.

Those orange chairs were ugly and uncomfortable. They helped to breathe new life into a 35+ year old arena. Since we're not getting a new one anytime soon, anything they can do to spruce it up is great. But, sorry, it'll still always be the Metro Centre to me.

Have attended many sporting events at Scotiabank Centre. Great sightlines from any lower bowl seats (lower bowl seats 5,500, upper bowl 4,500). High in upper bowl not so great but generally good seats are available. Hockey and basketball are great events to see. Halifax Mooseheads (QMJHL) entertaining and family-oriented for on- and off-ice activity, Haven't seen Halifax Hurricanes (NBL) basketball.... More
