Great venue for junior hockey!

In town for the Amarillo Bulls and it was worth it! Great facility! 2800 fans and you still could basically pick your own seat...

Not a bad place to kill some time at an indoor football game or to see some minor league hockey. Hasn't been updated in a long time, but it's all we have.

I've seen a few shows here and they've been outstanding. Looking forward to going back soon. Fun to dress up and go out.

I attended the tattoo convention and found this to be one of the least accommodating events centres I have been too. The hall was kept far too cold and many people were complaining, the bars closed hours before the convention did and the food options available were nasty and incredibly overpriced.

The auditorium is where we saw the cantata and they were amazing. Seats were good. Knee room a little small.

Attended the Harlem Globetrotters. The overall complex is good, has been upgraded and it shows. The actual "arena" needs major upgrades.

Civic center is s great place for venues. Hockey! Yay! But the city fathers choose to take concerts away in hopes to close the civic center, to limit people at concerts, management has no good, big ideas to use this place better,, locals say it is the graveyard of entertainment in Amarillo. Again the city wants upscale, hi-brow, places. Instead... More

Recently we attended a concert at the Civic Center. The bathrooms need updated. The entire coliseum needs a new update. Seems very dated and old.
