If you drive, the bad news is the parking lot (you must pay) is quite far from the arena. The good news is there are buses running back and forth before and after the game. The center itself is far more than only a basketball...More

I attended a concert here. The place is nice. The only complaint is that their is only 1 single restroom on the floor. Why is all the restrooms for women only.
