  • Parking is rough unless you have handicap. Good place to see concerts but stay off the floor they allow people to get up and all you see are butts, so move up to the next level seats. 
  • Philosophy of this venue: Let's see how many seats we can cram into a small amount of space. Now that the average person is larger, they have reduced the width of the seats and given you less leg room...  more »
  • What an amazing venue for this event! Easy and safe are the best adjectives to describe! My only complaint? Chips and cheese for $5...no healthy food options and Coke only products?

  • Easily accessed. Clean and well laid out. Well staffed with courteous, helpful people....even security. Numerous bathrooms throughout. Easy in/out smoking areas. Comfortable seating and great sound. Cost of concessions excruciatingly high!!
  • Part of the core of life in Des Moines. Great seats. Very good sound in most concerts. Big time entertainment from across the country and our local teams like the Wild hockey team give some great choices.
  • Nothing but good things to say. Clean and open. Great food and drinks. Go during hockey to see AHL WILD play, they are really great. They let our 10 year kids play before the professionals and that was special for the youth to experience playing at such an epic arena!
  • Great place for a concert. Saw Carrie Underwood and was a good view from the upper level. Many good restaurants and bars in the area.
  • Journey, Doobie Brothers, and Dave Mason were Amazing!! Nice clean arena. Smaller than the new mega arenas, so good seats all around. Located near the river, downtown. One of Des Moines' beautiful foot bridges is right across street. Easy access by foot no matter which side of the river you stay on. Plenty of restrooms, didn't wait in line ever! Convenient concessions and enough stands that there are no huge lines to wait in. We'll definitely return.
