  • Always fun to catch a Royals game but a terrible venue for music. The acoustics are horrible. This arena is in the heart of one of the best cities for local beer and yet they chose to serve crappy American beer.
  • Truly the hub of Victoria. So many things happening year round. When not used for concerts, shows and hockey games you can go there for public skating. Clean and well kept.
  • An intimate venue for Concerts. Sound quality is amazing. There's no bad seat in this house. The club house at Save-on-Foods Memorial Arena offers a wonderful buffet and full bar for special events and game night; be sure to call ahead to book revervations.
  • Newer arena with a WHL hockey team as the main tenant. (Victoria Royals) Full restaurant available along with concession's. Limited parking, plan ahead for larger events.
  • The arenas nice, but I'm a season ticket holder and the threw out the handicap who heckles people in the penalty box. Shame on u security. #freethetard
