  • Variety of seating available at time of ticket purchase as per your request or budget. Very easy to get there and find parking, or may use the parking garage. Great variety of food available. Beer was made easy to get and quickly if you partake. Several locations for restrooms so you may get back to your seat quickly. Kept very clean and security always available for your safety.
  • Great building, lots of history, not a bad seat in the place. You will pay a good deal for food though.
  • Love to watch the nailers here. Place is kinda old but they are doing alot of construction so hopefully it will be nicer in 2017.
  • I've been to concerts and hockey games in this arena and it always manages to offer comfort and convenience each and every time. The parking is close and always affordable.
  • Here's an interesting story. While walking into the arena with my young son one day. We walked across a pile of human feces covered in toilet paper. Now you might think that this is an awkward or strange thing. But in Wheeling West Virginia. This is just some of the local art that you can find. The local artists are called "hobos". And this is one of their favorite spots to hang out. So if you're into cultural experiences outside the norm, and then come on down to this piece of crap.
