i have been at this place many times for concerts like Kevin Hart or Drake. It has great prices and is almost always a sell out crowd.

Came to Columbus and Nationwide Arena for a Blue Jackets game and it was great! The arena is nice and new. The fans were friendly. Parking was easy and pretty cheap ($10 for about 2-3 blocks away).

My son and I went to the Redwings vs. Bluejackets game and sat in Section 117 Row B Seats 4 and 5. Amazing seats and the staff there is very friendly! My son highly recommends the All Beef Hotdog and Hot Chocolate!

My husband and I went to see OSU hockey team play at the Nationwide Arena. The arena is ginormous with lots of seating. Everything is digitized and the large screen shows a lot of CGI videos, playbacks and light shows.
