    I spent money on the most expensive seats available, to find out they are the uncomfortable, cheap folding chairs you find at a low-end BBQ party. The arena itself is outdated and not easy to navigate...  more »

    Been here many times and the last time was for the Tattoo. Excellent view and the sound system was perfect . Easy parking nearby as well.  more »

    The special effects for performances are incredible! The seats are very comfortable and the snack choices are varied! This is wonderful place to enjoy your favourite local sports teams' games and many other events, celebrations and festivities!

    Event was great, however although the seats themselves were comfortable the ZERO legroom made the whole thing VERY UNCOMFORTABLE. I cannot imagine being in the same seats in winter waring large jackets and boots !! This needs to be addressed ! I would not bring another group to an event here if the lack of legroom is not fixed. I run an organisation of some 400 members, the ones who attended this event have the same view Re legroom. This will be posted to all members.

    Visited the Scotiabank Centre to watch the 2017 Scottish Tattoo. Very good views from the seats. Great show.

    If you are over 6ft tall, you will find the legroom in the new blue seats lacking. I am 6'4, and I found the side seats tight, and had to keep legs spread open to be somewhat comfortable. The corner sections are horrible, so much so that I can't put my feet flat on the floor, so uncomfortable that the Usher let us sit in the folding chairs behind the section (sec 4).
