I've seen many events at the Giant Center and I don't have any complaints about the venue itself. But it's important to be mindful of where you park. If you don't pay very close attention, it's easy to lose your vehicle.

The place hosts a lot of great events from Bears hockey to the Harlem Globetrotters. Seating is relatively comfortable and there really isn't a bad seat in the place. I have this as an average review due to the lack of concessions they had open. We stood in line for a good 20 minutes to buy cold nachos and bottled... More

Attended to watch my son wrestle for a state medal. Place is very clean including bathrooms. Everyone was very kind and courteous. It is just expensive to purchase any food or drink. My children and I had a great time although our team did not place.

You would not expect a venue as nice as the Giant Center in a town the size of Hershey. It is first class. They performers are world class and the variety of performers draws folks from miles around!

Both of the rinks are warm and therefore great for recreational skating; the quality of ice is very good - they inspect ice closely, patch it manually, and then resurface with Zambonie.

Attended a skating event over the weekend that included thousands of athletes. I could not find any healthy selections. Fries chicken fingers hot dog etc. The rink is behind the times in the food option department. Sad.

This is a nice arena, we have been a few times to see the Providence Bruins play the bears. Its a nice arena, with many different options for food. The people are typically very nice even to those cheering for the opposing team. If you're a hockey fan, this is a good place to take in a game. The Bears... More

Great smaller hockey venue with a very good selection of concessions and a great crowd. Easy access, 6 or so minutes from the hotel to the parking lot. Exiting was not so great 20 - 25 minutes driving through, what seemed, the entire Hershey Park complex. Exiting was worse then that form similar facilities in major cities.

My family and I made our annual trek to Hershey at Christmastime, and we attended the Hershey Bears game at Giant Center on December 17, 2016. The morning snow and ice made the parking lot a bit of an adventure, but no problems. Naturally, the Bears' game was fun (even though Hershey lost), and the Giant Center is an excellent... More

Every year we make it a habit to go as a family to a Hershey Bears game. Live hockey is very exciting and the Bears make it a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The arena is beautiful and the crowd is family friendly. My young children and teenage daughter equally love the games. I guiltily wish there were more fights. I've seen... More
