Huntington Center, Toledo

4.2
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 was the home of the Toledo Crush of the Legends Football League for the 2014 season.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.

  • Perfect size to not have a bad seat in the house. We love to catch the Toledo Walleye every chance we can. Plenty of good concerts come through and the staff has always been nice.  more »

  • The Huntington Center is truly an excellent venue. Went to catch a Walleye game Saturday night and had a blast. Not a bad seat in the house, Beers are a bit pricey but that's to be expected. The food choices seem endless, great selection of menu items, not just your typical hot dogs & frozen burgers. Nice collection of Craft Beers. Great place to have a party. The game was super exciting, and the Walleye pulled off a win. This was the 1st time I've caught a bus to the game which made it even better:) Had so much fun, I think I'll go to the game on February 11. If you're passing through Toledo, make sure you put The Huntington Center on you to do list, I promise you, you won't regret it.
  • To be the most comfortable: Leave in plenty of time to find parking and walk. Plan on parking costing about $15. Wear good walking shoes, and dress in layers. Though not freezing it can become quite chilly in there. General food items average about $5 each (personal pan pizza) (large soda). The atmosphere is very energetic. If your very sensitive to noise you may want to bring earplugs. There can be cowbells and lots of loud announcements, and music.
  • Very nice arena. There isn't a bad seat in the house and actually if you're in the high tier for a hockey game you feel as if you're hanging over the ice. Pretty cool honestly. As with all arenas food prices are high but I've seen higher. I've been to concerts, musical ice shows, and sporting events at this location and have not been unsatisfied with anything I've gone to. There are 2 parking structures, one connected to the arena s n the other within short walking distance. Lots of street parking as well.
  • Fun times we're had by all. Only complaint is the chairs are small, and the big guy sitting next to you will steal your arm rest. I will say that the Walleyes" games are fun to be at. That place erupts for a goal. They throw a frozen Walleye out on the ice. They jeer the enemy goalie. It's great. Beer is expensive but it comes with a souvenir cup usually.
  • We were here for two reasons... 1) A hockey tournament for 8u players and the staff, acomodations and cleanliness was "Above the boards"! We ended up receiving a tour of the players locker room and exercise area, the kids loved it. 2) We attended a game against Brampton ,the same evening, clean stadium and a lot of fun.
