  • Well constructed so that pretty much all the seats are good. Plenty of parking, easy in and easy out after the game. Food is pricey, but so it is at all such venues.  more »
  • Recently went to watch the Spits play. The seats are steeper than you would traditionally get in 6000 seat arena. This makes for great sight lines and depth perception for the action on the ice. Facil...  more »

  • The company charged with managing this venue is not active in getting acts to it for the city as a whole. Parking (entry & exit) is insane design. Food costs are nothing short of rape. Good improved LED main bowl lighting. Friendly staff working events
  • Well set up. Multi use and knowledgeable staff at desk 99% of the time
  • Very good ice, better than the attched community rinks. Top notch building and community rink.
  • Parking is quite poor, with far too few exits onto the streets after an event. A solid venue for an OHL hockey game, even if the seats are packed in fairly closely. Good community rinks too.
  • bad location. no hotels nearby. closest restaurants are not walking distance. Who did the planning to have this area built here?
