I have only been once, for a Christian event earlier this month. This place is HUGE. The acoustics were perfect. It is easy to get around without getting lost.

Enjoyed going to Bandits games this season, but unfortunately their season was the worst ever. Still , very lively and entertaining . Can't wait until next season!

All seats are decent and it is a great place for watching concerts or sports. There is a wide variety of food and beverages, however those are a bit pricey.

The sight-lines and atmosphere are top notch. Fans at the game were very supportive of their team, though I was rooting for the opposition. Seats were comfortable and access to and from was very simple. The immediate area is nice, but walk a few blocks...More

I have been here for hockey games, concerts, and conventions. I have sat on every level. My favorite is the 200 level, as there is more room in your seat. And the boxes are the BEST!

Waiting outside in the back of the arena where the players arrive is your best bet. When I was younger, I used to wait out in that area and I was lucky enough to get some autographs.

We like Pizza Plant. It's at the same place as the Courtyard by Marriott. Great before or after the game. They have more than Pizza and we love the atmosphere. Also, fans talk about the game after which is fun. It's a... More
