  • Usually good attractions but the seats are so small it makes it miserable. Being close to home is great but if winter weather you have heavy coats and no where to put them . Free parking is a plus and...  more »
  • Great facility. Very clean and great for families. Free parking and easy to get around in the parking lot. Love watching the Mavericks there!  more »
  • Unless your sitting in the curved end area at each end of the ring, there isn't a bad seat in tnt place. In the curved areas your legs get crammed into the guy next to you. We went 2 Fridays in a row,...  more »

  • Saw Arcade Fire here. An absolutely superb show by all accounts. I felt the area was very clean and exceptionally well suited to a show of this type. It’s a smaller arena that kind of feels like they took a big arena and just shrunk it down to the perfect size, keeping the arena style seating but making it so nearly every seat feels close enough and is a great seat. Also the acoustics were well, well above average for an arena type facility.
  • Was here for a Maverick's game and had the best time! There was plenty of parking, with plenty of attendants on hand to help manage the chaos. The ticket takers were friendly and courteous, but diligent about checking bags and bottles. The concessions, while expensive (as can be expected), weren't outrageously so. A large bag of cotton candy was $6, a large bag of kettle corn was also $6, and the $4 sodas we got came with a free refill. The hotdogs (who's price I can't remember) weren't super special, but they were large and VERY tasty. There also looked to be a number of "classier" food options (including wine and beer! πŸ™Œ), but, due to the unrefined pallets of my children, I'm unable to vouch for any of it's tastiness. 😜 There were also lots of easy to find restrooms that were clean, spacious, and well stocked. Plus, total bonus points for having more than one "family restroom". Definitely awesome when you're herding multiple small people who have cashed in on that free refill. πŸ™„ Even escaping the parking lot after the game wasn't a nightmare. Traffic flowed smoothly and people weren't jerks. An overall wonderful experience!
  • I have only been to Maverick hockey games but love this arena. Every seat has a good view. I wish it was a Little bigger, maybe 7,500 seats instead of 5800. The food services offer plenty of options. I love that parking is free and it seems pretty easy to get in and out even when the event is sold out. I always look forward to my next visit.
  • The Silverstein Eye Center in Independence Missouri is a wonderful venue. It's small enough to be cozy and intimate with great views! All the different events such as music concerts the Mavericks games and Comets games are all fantastic you can't lose at this event center. Not to mention how friendly the people who serve you at the Whistle Stop near section 107 are!
  • Went to see a Mavericks game and loved it! The arena is cozy, but spacious. Comfortable seats and always a good view! Would definitely consider this a good venue for any event.
