Access into the arena was somewhat easy. The seats were comfortable and the acoustics were pretty good. LOVED seeing FLEETWOOD MAC here! They played for 3 hours!

I loved this arena! It was fun, and clean w/ helpful staff. Beer was pricey at $8 a glass but so worth it. Sporting events are great fun to attend and the team spirit in Pittsburgh was nothing short of admirable.

It's on the edge of a sketchy area, which is typical in a city. It is also next to a college, and the downtown area. It is well lit with many people around. Thousands of people go here often for hockey games an events... More
