  • Went to see KISS. Badass show but I was very disturbed by the lack of security. Went into arena and people only got searched if they had a bag. Should have better method
  • Very nice quality arena, plenty of room for large events of around 5,000 people or so. Comfortable seating inside, and lots of little niches outide where you can have a picnic lunch in the shade. Enjoyed being at the venue very much.
  • Go Comets. Mavs too. One of the best places to watch an event. We are in a suite so maybe not a far comment. The place is always clean and fresh every week. Staff is nice. Con - quit gouging on the food prices. Used to go there and eat before or at the game cause they would have special pregame pricing. That went away and also the prices shot up. We don't buy anything there anymore if we can avoid it.
  • Going to see KISS this July....can't wait. Kind of a smaller venue so it should be great entertainment...better than their usual bigger shows!!! Rock and Roll All Nite and Party Everyday!!!!
  • One of the nicest rinks you could reasonably play at
