This was my first time attending an event at this venue! The layout is very nice and spacious. It was easy to get to the entrance and make our way to our seats. I would definitely attend more events at this location!

The seating is comfortable. The acoustics appear to be good. Easy sight lines. It's a bit cumbersome to move around the outside of the arena. Parking seems barely adequate. Traffic gets backed up.

We're in town for the conference championship and was sort of dismayed at the poor attendance, the arena on the hand was a little on tired side and maybe that helps in the low attendance. With that aside we still had a good time.

A good place to see a concert. No bad seats in the house. Also the circus comes to this venue and is a good bucket list item. Looking forward to many more concerts to come. Enjoy.

Although not located near any hotel / motel properties, Lakefront Arena is very easy to get too, has plenty of parking and a nice little view overlooking Lake Pontchatrain. Comfortable seats with a great view from any location.

My grand daughter had cheer competition in this arena. There was plenty of parking. The location was a little far from where we stayed at the French quarters.
