This venue was clean and security was great when entering the facility. You knew what to expect once you were in the building. Everyone went through a metal detector and all bags were checked. Seating was tight and not a lot of leg room. Broken seats were replaced by folding chairs which were broken by the end of the night. Security declined by mid show as people from the second level kept trying to sit in the lower sections, do they stop checking tickets between shows? Also, only handicap restrooms on the second level so had to go down one flight just to use a restroom. This was a complaint by everyone in the lower sections.

We went up to Albany to see a CrossFit competition recently and have to say the facility was really nice. Beyond the organization of the event, the bathrooms and other areas of the Times Union Center were all really nice, clean and well maintained.

We come almost every year. It's a great event at a good venue. Can't really complain but nothing to brag about either.

We went to see Joel Osteen. I bought tickets for ground floor because walking stairs is painful. We were directed up the first level because "that is where security is checking people," then had to walk down about 40 stairs to the floor. They even made a person in a wheelchair get out of his chair, take the escalator up, and then told him to go to the stairwell. Huh???
