Came here for bowling tournament, this building was adiquate for the needs of the tournament. I wish there had been more furniture for friends and family to sit while I register and attend to my tasks. Plenty of bathrooms and clean.

Nice location with plenty of nearby places to visit for food. Limited facilities for food and too busy for breaks but a great venue to attend training in.

Been to many a Syracuse Crunch hockey game over the past 15 years here and have always enjoyed attending. Comfortable seating, decent bathrooms and enough variety of concessions to please most. Parking is nearby and not too expensive.

The building is actually very nice. Spacious, clean, bright and seemed to be layer out well. Probably the most striking part in my opinion is the beautiful Wall of Honor just inside the entrance.

There are NEVER enough bathrooms open - 1 for a huge crowd of people. There really need to be other bathrooms accessible.
