Tourist Spot Arena / Stadium
The Huntington Center is an 8,000-seat multi-purpose arena in downtown Toledo, Ohio It was completed in 2009 and cost $105 million to build. It replaced the Toledo Sports Arena, which has since been demolished.It serves as the home of the Toledo Walleye ECHL ice hockey team, and as of 2014 is the home of the Toledo Crush of the Legends Football League.HistoryAfter a successful partnership on the Mud Hens Stadium, the Lucas County Commissioners teamed with HNTB Architecture Inc., a national sports architecture firm located in Kansas City; The Collaborative Inc, of Toledo; and Poggemeyer Design Group, of Toledo for a new arena.The arena was designed as the first new LEED sports arena in the United States. The arena's signature green design element is a 900sqft "green wall" outside of the building, to feature the use of plant life on the exterior of the building to help cool the arena by shading the glass-enclosed main entrance of the arena. The arena's location near mass transit systems, use of a light-colored roof membrane to reflect heat and sunlight, and underground cisterns collecting rain water to re-use for landscaping purposes around the arena, are also emphasized to earn LEED points for the project.

  • An awesome location to watch Toledo Walleye ice hockey and special events. They bring in tons for awesome musical acts and shows throughout the year. There is not a bad seat in the house. Huntington Center is located right in downtown Toledo so there are tons of bars and restaurants to go to before or after an event. This facility has really helped liven up downtown Toledo!
  • What a great venue. If you ever wonder if you should make the drive for a concert or game at the Huntington Center, do it. It will be worth your trip. Not a bad seat in the house. Always clean and they have a great staff.
  • Every seat is a great seat! Not a bad view in the place! Very clean & Awesome concession area. #1 Venue in the Mid West
  • Nice, small arena. Plentiful parking. WARNING! YOU MUST PAY CASH AT ALL LOTS AND PARKING GARAGES. NO ONE ACCEPTS PLASTIC! (The PNC ATM located nearby is s u p e r s l o w. As in 5 minutes for a fast Cash $20 withdrawal). Good locations for handicapped seating. Quality and clean bathrooms. Newer building with friendly staff. Been here 4 times over the years.
  • Always a good time going to a Walleye game even if they happen to lose! The arena is very nice and easy to get around. The team does a nice job with letting fans meet players after games and almost always have some sort of special promo or special jersey night going on. I only gave 4 stars though as I feel like the tickets are a little bit on the higher side in some cases. I kind of feel like instead of every seat in the lower bowl being $17, they should charge more to be in the first 5 rows around the glass and then drop the other tickets down a little bit. Going there with a couple kids and getting some food and drinks will put you well over $100 for a 3 hour time out. I also wish the prices weren't so high in the Swamp Shop... baby outfits for $40 seems a bit much. I realize that this is the nature of the beast going to sporting events but would go more often and enjoy more games if it was not so expensive when it was all said and done. Given that the Walleye have set records for single season attendance numbers, maybe the people who think like me are pretty slim though. haha
