We were recently here for a wedding which was BEAUTIFUL inside. The staff did a fantastic job withthe food and decorations. We were also here for the boat show recently. If coming for a show and not a private event I would be sure that you know that you cannot get in the doors that are on the parnell street... More

I have attended two Komets games at the coliseum. It's easy to get in and out of the parking areas, and parking is only $5 for the regular lot and $8 for the preferred lot - and my parking passes have had $5 coupons for two local restaurants on them. All of the staff that I've interacted with have been... More

Got the most expensive tickets--what a waste! Most of the action at the other end. Someone filming and a helper, squarely in the way most of the time. The "trinket" salespeople spent a good part of the time blocking our views as well. The "trinkets" $15.00-$25.00. Worth it-NOT HARDLY! Last time attending this event.

So my friends and I went here for a concert and we were pretty excited about it. Sadly I will not go to another concert here unless it is a last resort. I am one that when at a concert I want to dance around and have fun. The "guards" were jerks, and they are rude and not friendly. We... More

Attended the Ft Wayne Hamfest. Nice venue for this event. Nice meeting rooms, plenty of space for vendors. Nice food vendors, clean bathrooms and great parking. what more could you ask for. Ft Wayne is lucky to have such a nice place

Every aspect of this facility was great. Great venue for a concert. Helpful event staff. Plenty of parking. Close to Holiday Inn IPFW across the street (which runs a courtesy shuttle back and forth). We drove two hours to attend this concert. Would definitely make the trip again for another concert.

Came from Ohio to Christian Event for the 2nd or 3rd time to this Coliseum! It's a very nice, well-planned facility. The staff that direct & oversee the people attending are so very friendly/helpful too! They had concession areas open....but some were closed before the event was finished- maybe there was a good reason for that though. Our event this... More

Recently attended the Kiss concert at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum. My first time at this venue. What a great venue for a concert! Although we had floor seats, the smaller size of the venue would appear that any seats would be good for a concert. The sound was spectacular. Granted, Kiss puts on an amazing show, but I... More

Not a bad seat in the place, we were in section 220 and we could see just fine. It's a perfect layout so that no matter what seats you have you get a good view. Good sound quality also. We had a great experience and will definitely be back for other events!

Friendly and plenty of helpful staff. Easy to park, and lots of room (event parking was just $5). Concessions were decent. Typical venue pricing, so don't be too surprised. Jim Gaffigan was a hoot! Restrooms and seating area were very clean. We found it was well organized, and exiting the parking area after the concert, flowed smoothly. Fun time!
