After several attempts to attend hockey games/basketball games we realized that this was not a place to go to find comfortable seating. Very few venues are open for basketball, and there is no room in the seats. You are touching elbows with the people beside...More

I have been to a couple of events here,and found the facility to be a decent one. I enjoyed myself, but parking was a bit of an issue.

We attended the Halifax Tattoo this year. It was amazing and worth the drive from Ontario. A must see.

We always have fun checking out a game, concert or show at the scotiabank centre. It's the perfect size building for Halifax and located right in the heart of downtown. Lots of new renovations including new seats and upgraded food service make it better.

Loved the atmosphere here. Attended the CIS Hockey Championships here. Some of the Quarter-final games only required the lower bowl, so they kept it more intimate, then opened it up for the big crowd for the final match. They did a great job of keeping...More

Yes, the new seats are more comfortable, the cup holders are very much welcomed, and even the new bathrooms on the lower level are nice. But I do much higher hopes for the new food services. It is still very lousy service despite the new...More
