  • Came here to see a cirque ice skating show. The parking garage underneath is $20 for events and was easy in and out. The bathroom lines were long but moved quickly and the seats weren’t too narrow.  more »

  • On the positive side for a concert, and most important, good sound and well run show and staff. On the negative side, not enough staff for drinks, extremely long lines and wait. Most surprising, the.....  more »

  • The Disturbed and Three Days Grace show was amazing. Where we were we had a great view of the stage. The whole place seems to have the ability to provide a great seat for any show. Awesome venue, easy to find, parking easy enough to navigate. Wish prices were lower and more reasonable. $15 a beer was much too much.
  • Tough to find general admission area. I feel like we were walking in circles forever. Some of the concert goers were jerks but, that's anywhere. Great concert with great bands! We had a blast!
  • Decently sized arena for a city the size of Worcester. Came with a large group of friends to see Disturbed, and had an amazing time. The price for drinks was a little too pricey given this wasn't Boston or NYC, but the staff was very skilled at safely and professionally handling a crowd of 15000. Will recommend to get tickets here if anybody has a favorite band playing
  • Nice place to see things went to the PBR there. Finding parking in Worcester is not bad,but could be better only reason for 4 stars. Parking garage that we went to was close and staff we're very friendly. Very easy to find where you need to go in the DCU center. Tip prepay in the parking garage before you walk out.
  • We saw a cirque. The stadium was clean and easy to get around. I appreciated them creating more female bathrooms out of the men's rooms to avoid long lines. The down side. I paid a lot of money to treat our family to tickets in the front center area. Unfortunately, we could not see the first half hour of the show because people kept coming in late. So of course everyone had to stand up, let them in, and repeat...repeat...repeat. The seating was different because they added seats lower down. We have been to hockey games without much issue because seating was traditional. They need to change their policy of letting people come into a show like the cirque late. Perhaps have them wait for a lull in the show etc. It was very disappointing, especially since going to an expensive show like this is a very rare treat for us. At one point someone was called out for sitting in the wrong seats right in front of us and refused to budge, so that was a nice 10 minute distraction of standing and arguing. When you pay for a show you should be able to watch it.
