Entered through highmark gate and had to circle arena to reach section 221. Very long walk and section very steep. Next time will get seats section 101/102. Closer to gate and not as steep

Horrible how the arena discriminates against smokers. No smoking area whatsoever. No admittance back in if you go out. I'll never come back and will be sure to let everyone I know what there discriminatory policy is

The arena is located between 5th Avenue and Centre Avenue; you can drop someone off on either street but the easiest is at the front door which is on Centre.
