Exhibitor at an event in the south hall. Staff was helpful and efficient. Facilities were exactly what was needed for the show. Parking costs are reasonable ($5 for outside lots, $10 for the garage). Good food nearby if you don't want the concession offerings.

Some years ago the VBC underwent considerable renovations, bringing the entire facility up to ADA standards. Or at least that's what they said. First restroom I tried indicated accessible restrooms were inside the closed theater we were waiting to open. The next one, once I got the door open (heavy doors and wheelchairs are a no no) I found the... More

We saw the Blue Man group last night and it was a wonderful show. Very creative -- Performance Art, turbo-charged. VBC is a great facility with good parking, facilities and very accessible for people with physical limitations,

We've been to the VBC for concerts, hockey games, monster trucks, ballet & performances in the theater. We always have a fun, exciting time no matter what event we go see!n

They fit 18 courts inside the South Hall. I was hit with a volleyball from behind twice and not easy hits. They need to upgrade to have separation netting to keep people from being hurt. It was very frustrating to try and watch a game but finding it necessary to look all other directions at all times.

Attended the Huntsville Havoc Semi-Pro Hockey Team at the Probst Arena a part of the Von Braun Center Complex on the East side of Huntsville. There is not a bad seat in the house. Fast pace end to end hockey. The fans have a great time and the Chuck A Puck Contest is fun (See Pictures). The video displays were... More

This was my first time there. The Auditorium is spacious. Orchestra level and two balconies. We sat in the first balcony. Sound was piped through a sound system which needed updating. This was possibly brought by Broadway Theater League. The show was tremendous! Our issue was the balcony seating when two tall young men, who did not sit back in... More

The concert itself was fabulous. Close your eyes and you'd think Journey was actually on stage. However, the on-stage lighting was terrible. We could have done without the searchlights flashing every 5-10 seconds in our eyes. I totally get stage lighting and special effects, and a few flashes now and then would have been fine. But the continual searchlight effect... More

We attended a dinner here. It was nice but not as nice as I had expected. I did not like the location.
