Visited recently as part of business trip to see the LA game. This is a great stadium, with excellent facilities. Getting in and out of the stadium was very easy, and the facilities are very good. Getting out of the area after the game (back to hotel) was not that efficient. Well worth a visit

This is an Awesome arena, has a lot of vendor space so lines are not bad at all to stand in and not wait forever so you miss what you are there for.

Was in town from Edmonton and bought tickets to the game while waiting in line to get in. Very nice area with good food options. Over all was a very quiet arena compared to other sports teams we have gone to visit.....However maybe there is something to be said as their team won.

Easy in and out. Parking downtown for $7. Local eating places nearby parking off Norte Dame Avenue were convenient and reasonably priced.

This properly designed arena has no bad seats for a hockey game, circus, NCAA March madness or a big name performing artist. Superb digital sound system. The concourse contains a local hall of fame. Food and drink choices are various but pricey. Very accessible for all abilities. Team pride shows everywhere in the arena no matter which sport is being... More

Very nice arena to check out some hockey. There wasn't much of a price difference between the first rows near the ice and the first rows in the second section, so we sat three rows back. Very awesome to see the game so close and really feel a part of it. The only bad part was that very few vendors... More

Sat in Sec 219 with a nice view of the ice, benches, goals, etc. Plenty of bathrooms and food options. Friendly staff. Can't wait to go back.

The center itself was great, but there was a terrible lack of organization to get inside. We waited in one line for 3 hours (a ridiculous amount of time already), only to get to the front and find out it was the wrong one! We managed to get them to let us in, but some signs would've helped! We were... More
