  • 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 »

  • 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 »

  • Had a fantastic time at the Mavericks game. Arena was lively, seats were comfortable and somebody told me I was too loud at a hockey game haha.... beer prices were slightly high, even for an arena. Overall had a great time and would recommend this venue to anybody that had something to watch here.
  • This is a fairly new roughly 6,000 seat arena. It's home to the Missouri Mavericks minor league hockey team and the Kansas City Comets indoor soccer team. It hosts a constant stream of smaller concerts and shows. It's clean, free parking and drama free. Highly recommend.
  • Venue was average. The inbound parking was controlled by hand and not to bad. Upon exit the parking was very good and easy to get onto surface streets with very little wait. The security at the building was evident. The seating is assigned which presents some problems for the people who cant or wont read. The restrooms were clean and dry at one time, untill the jerks that cant aim are allowed in. This is compounded by the sales of beer and those that cant control their intake. Staff and management try to be effective.
  • I love it. This place is a good place for buying stuff and watching multiple acts and performances. Also there are sports games here such as hockey.
  • This venue is small compared to something like the Sprint Center and perfect for a close-up view of an event, but we bought concert tickets and didn't know until we got there that our view would be obstructed by a large bundle of wires hanging from the ceiling. This was a big disappointment since the tickets weren't exactly cheap. Parking was easy and close to the entrance.
