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... read more

Did a few Christmas parties and some Havoc hockey games here. Nice place to host events. Really enjoyed the hockey games.

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.

We took my mom for the Jim Brickman concert. Seat were great. The sound man must not have been at the sound check or paying attention. Could hardly hear the singers and he was late in bringing mics up when they started singing.

Was here for the marathon running event. The facility was large whereby many events can take place at one time, with plenty of parking all around. Clean restrooms and helpful staff was nice considering it was 5 am. Easy to get to, with restaurants and other activities not far away. The Hockey Team (Havoc's) play here but I could not... More

We attended the community Peace on Earth concert performance and thoroughly enjoyed the facility. The seating is comfortable and the view is excellent. Acoustics are tremendous. Restrooms are clean and easily accessible. Kudos to Huntsville for having this facility for the community to enjoy.

First off I was impressed with the polite folks who scanned our tickets and how the restaurants and restrooms are set up around the arena. Food is low cost compared to places like Intrust Arena in Wichita. Cons- They need to update the inside the arena. The suites should be up in the air skyboxes and make the seats near... More

This is an excellent venue for hosting large and not so small events. Attended a charity event at the VBC and noticed that there where several other significant sized events occurring at the same time. Ample parking and access. Security was very visible but not over the top. Centrally located in downtown with lots of things to do nearby.
