  • Super fun time at the Mavericks hockey games. My son was lucky enough to get a puck from one of the players! After the game traffic is well organized and easily navigated. Many options for food and drink all reasonably priced.
  • I went to a comets game it was really fun. Indoor soccer is fast paced and has higher scoring than regular soccer. The tickets are reasonable priced and the stadium is small so all the seats feel close to the field. There are 4 main concession stands and each has a the same basic food options, but they each have a unique item. the concession stands are named: "1849 inc." which has cheeseburgers, "the whistle stop" which has polish sausage, "three trails grill" which has soft pretzels and "the Queen city cafe" which has pizza.
  • Great place to watch the Shriners circus. Clean restrooms, and short vendor lines. Easy parking!
  • Turned us away for a free event that had required donation of the normal price-to be donated for a good cause. False advertising. Wont return.
  • Fantastic minor league arena. Great for hockey as they have installed a classic train horn for goals, not just an arena buzzer (mimicking NHL/Canadian Junior teams). Picture is view from loge/club seating on ends in upper level, suites on sides. Food selection is large, but still pretty generic, with prices a little high for minor league sporting events (comparable to Sprint Center in price).
