  • This place is the reason the hockey team does not sell out. A ridiculous distance from downtown, unreal parking prices, concessions that rob you blind (i.e. $4.50 for a bottle of coke vs 2.29 in gas s...  more »

  • We've attended two concerts here and walked out on both. This is a hockey arena not a concert venue. The sound system is painfully awful, the 'food' neither eatable nor affordable, and we would never ...  more »

  • Venue is fantastic, seats are comfortable. I do wish they had more leg room but I am a very tall individual so I realize the world is not designed for those over 6'0". Concession prices are absolutely outrageous, they have some of the highest prices I have ever seen in every venue I've been to. I used to be able to bring $20 and feed myself for an entire hockey game. $20 now barely gets you anything when it comes to food and drink. I feel as if the venue needs to reevaluate its food and beverages costs, also ticket prices as well. Wonder why attendance is starting to drop? People don't want to pay astronomical prices for hockey. Families can barely afford the 300s (where most of the true fans end up) and yet the 100s are full of stuffy business people who can barely be bothered to cheer when anything exciting happens.
  • Parking lots closest to centre are more expensive than ones requiring a little more walking. One main entrance but organized to get you through security quickly. Signage is good so you can locate seat easily. Lots of food choices and washrooms available.
  • Once your in the building it's like jail, you can't leave. I haven't been to a hockey game in 4 years because of it and never will again. Any business that doesn't allow me to feel comfortable and do as I please, doesn't get my money, no thank you. Better smarten up, smokers probably use to fill 25 percent of the arena.
  • This was my first pro sports game of any sport and we watched the Senators pay the Sabers. It was a blast, arena was easy to get around and there were no terrible lines. My only issue is the 11-15 dollar beer!!! Was a great experience overall
  • We had a blast! Decent parking, reasonable pricing and very friendly staff. We were there to see the Bruins play. We were very nervous going to an opponents home center but everyone was so nice. Even the Ottawa fans! Can't wait to go back.
