Great place for music shows, basketball games, hockey, Disney on ice. Parking is usually $10. Food can be pricey. Check website to see if you can bring in water.

We went here for a concert, and found the seats to be excellent for viewing the stage, and overall the operation was a well oiled operation.

Saw the Soul 2 Soul tour at this arena. Good place for a concert. It was under construction but had signs to help you get around.

Saw NKOTB with Paula Abdul. Venue is under construction, so it's tricky getting in & out and figuring out which street you ended up on. It reminded us of Mohegan Sun. Not really a bad seat. Our seats were great and for only $50!

it depends on the event. Basketball and hockey seating is different from a concert.
