  • I have been going to concerts, shows, and circuses in this center ever since it opened in the '60's. It is a great place to see sporting events as well. I like it because it is not a huge place but ra...  more »

  • Was a great time. Was very clean and well organized. Parking was easy and traffic was not bad. We had great seats and saw everything. Big tv to view speakers and great sound.  more »

  • Every single employee was rude and argumentative. They could not answer a simple question. "Which exit is on the east side? " their answer is the are all leaving through that exit right there. "Ok thank you but which exit is on the east side?" There is no reentry. " ok I understand that but point me in the direction of your east exit. " Unbelievable.
  • We went here for the one of the last showings of the Barnum and Bailey circus. Its a great arena.
  • Events here are always expensive. Everything is overpriced from concessions to tickets to souvenirs. It's unfortunate because if the pricing was better, more people would be able to attend events more often.
  • The seats are close to the action....not as big as some of the newer larger indoor venues. Parking underneath is great. The food is not so great....unless you were short on sodium for the day. Wish they had a couple of premium stands to choose from vs burgers, dogs chick tenders, and fries. But, as long as you go there for the event and not the food, you'll be ok.
  • Sardines in a can have more room to sit than you do here. Have to sit almost sideways just to get in the seat. The men's restroom you are literally rubbing elbows with the person next to you at the urinals. Will hate to come back here for a concert or something.
