I recently attended a venue at this arena and would recommend if you are 5'8" tall and over, try to get an aisle seat. I recently attended a venue there and I had dents in my knees from the back of the seat in front of me. The width of the seating is less than the most discounted airline. If... More

This venue has been recently renovated and looks great. However, the seats are cramped beyond reason, no leg room and reduced width. They are just awful. Do not plan on being comfortable unless you are short and thin. We will not be attending again.

This former "Metro Centre" has been sponsor rebranded and they did put in new seating to improve comfort. Not a bad rink. Home of the Mooseheads and the Nova Scotia Tattoo and venue for many music concerts - acoustics are reasonable but like any arena, not great.

Since Scotia Bank took it over they have upgraded the seating (very comfy) and washrooms (very well done). Excellent viewing, lots to eat or drink and easy access.
