WOW - This arena is amazing. Excellent amenities, seats are awesome and staff very nice. Although our (visiting) team lost, we loved our experience at the venue. They put many other cities to shame!

We saw Disney on Ice and Michael Buble twice here with great seats and it was easily a great experience and even when I saw Gaga with the cheapest seats it still felt interactive. Like all arenas the food and drinks were outrageously priced though.

Been here for several regular season and Stanley Cup playoff games. Not a bad seat in the house, typical food and beverage prices for venues like this - not cheap to eat and drink here for sure.

This venue , home of the Stanley Cup Semifinals this year, was the obvious choice for Stars on Ice. Lots of parking available ($$$) and nice food options. Comfy seats...doesn't look like there's a a bad seat in the house.

Not a bad seat in the house! Enjoyed the concert and was happy with the easy access parking. Felt the vendors made unnecessary chaos and could use a bit more organization but other than that we had a great time!

Buford's Kitchen is right across the street from the arena. It is pretty good, but it gets busy right before events.
