  • Not a bad seat in the house to watch a Hockey game. If you love hockey and want season tickets to the Phantoms I highly suggest it. The Morning Call section is for season ticket holders. Best part about that is you can order food or drinks right from your seat and they will bring it to you!
  • Very nice center! We saw Frozen on ice here and were sitting front row in the floor section. It didnt seem like there would be a bad seat in the house. The sound was very good and the lights were spectacular. Will definitely be returning in the future. Also, parking was very reasonable.
  • Great arena. Went for the phantoms hockey game. Plenty of parking within easy walking distance. Lots of refreshment options and prices are reasonable. Handicapped seating is available by calling box office.
  • Fairly new Arena to the area. Parking is $6 which is reasonable. Elevators that lead from the parking garage to the main floor. Beer price is $8.50. Seating is very tight. Once you get in everyone else has to stand up for you to exit the aisle. I did not notice any food or drink vendors selling food or drinks once I was seated. A lot of different food choices for you to purchase at the mezzanine level. They have a lot of different events here such as indoor Racing and concerts. Safe environment with noticeable security.
  • Leave early. Plenty of parking, faster to pay on line & print pass! Hugh arena but the streets are not very wide so traffic is heavy. Recommend you allow 1/2 hour before your planned arrival until you get through town and park.
