  • Horrible security. Kicked my two friends and myself out for NO reasoning because we were in front of the stage? Called the facility and they wouldn’t answer or give any reasoning why we were kicked out. WORST concert experience I️ have ever been too.
  • I always have so much fun when I go to the hockey games
  • Nice arena. Great environment for a minor league hockey game. I have watched the Jackals several times and have yet to be disappointed.
  • Love going to hockey games here. The food at the concession stands is decent, but if you don't like that they have a restaurant in the building. They have a great beer selection and you can even get wine and cocktails.
  • Had a great time at the Jackals game. Serves beer and wine and I think cocktails too. Saw like three fights and Jackals won all three. Refs didn't stop it till they locked or one was knocked on his hind end. it was awesome.
