  • I always enjoy going here be it to watch a concert, the anual Tattoo, sporting events etc. The seating is comfortable and the view is excellent where ever you choose to sit.  more »
  • This really is one of the most poorly run sports stadiums I've ever been. Unfortunately, it's the one in my home city. My list of complaints is long. They don't have any of their own parking but the S...  more »
  • great venue, had floor seats, they were just metal folding chairs, a little uncomfortable for a 2+ hour comedy show, but the show made up for it.  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.
  • Nice 10,000 seat hockey rink..Great venue's held here. Have been here s many times. Newly renovated in recent years..
  • 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).
