Have been here for concerts, basketball & hockey, and graduation -- the seats are really comfortable left to right and leg room too. The views are open and clear. The restrooms are plentiful and clean.

The Baxter Arena is quite a gem. Whether it's a sporting event or a speaker, magician or graduation. It's a nice newer, clean place for any event.

It is an Awsome hockey venu, we went there first as an open house when it was new, nice to see. Then for a political rally, not enough exits. Same applies to hockey, not enough close car parking nor enough exits

Great mid-sized venue. Parking and traffic is a cluster so I would recommend staying at a hotel within walking distance. Merchandise lines were terrible so go a little early and beat the crowd. Drinks and snacks were reasonably priced and the selection was adequate. My...More
