  • I went here to see the Syracuse Men's Basketball team play Colgate this past weekend, and I had a great time with everything. The dome has great seats surrounding the entire court, and all seats have ...  more »
  • This is the most uncomfortable venue I have ever been in. There are no personal seats....all bleachers. So your assigned "seat" size may be greatly reduced if there are large people in your row. Then ...  more »

  • I mean it's the dome, loud crowd, great games ( for the most part ) I've been coming since I was little and now get to bring my little ones. Love this place
  • First time at the dome and I had a great time.... It's an amazing place for a basketball game and I had great seats.... Traffic getting into and out of the parking garage was a good test of patient but over all it was a lot of fun and I definitely want to go again..
  • Great place. Probably needs to be renovated a little, but nothing beats that gameday atmosphere. Go Cuse!
  • This is a pretty amazing place to see an event or concert at. It's a great setup for football, slightly less good for basketball, but with tens of thousands of people in the building it's always an exciting experience. Especially when the home team is winning. Not a lot of parking nearby, which is probably the biggest downfall of the building.
  • The Dome is great when the home team wins. The Dome should be renovated to just basketball and high end venue. Hopefully the University will get a good plan together and open an outdoor stadium for football. We'll see. Otherwise it's a good venue for sports in Central New York. Go SU!
