It is always a long walk to get there. The events that are booked are limited. The parking is limited and the elderly have a difficult time unless they are dropped off in front

This is a good place for a gymnastics meet, seating is great! Only complaint was we now have to get tickets through the box office so you came from the hotel inside, then back outside then back around. Really a pain! Cost for meet is CRAZY high for people coming to watch!

the concer hall filled with people and the whole symphony orchestra on stage together with the Music Theatre artists and Butler Community Choir performing Rodgers & Hammerstein's Carousel in an integrated, locally arranged performance was Saturday 2-11-17 an experience not likely to be enjoyed anywhere else!

I have been to Century 2 for several events since moving to Wichita in the mid 80s. As the years go by their hasn't been anything done to improve this once great place. Wichita really needs to either do a major renovation of this place or build a brand new convention center to attract major conferences.

One of the best things about Century II is the location. Easy to find, and the parking is good. A good place to hear the Wichita Symphony, or watch Music Theatre of Wichita. Also a great place for the Wichita Downtown Lions Club annual Pancake Day.

My friend gave me an extra ticket to see the Wichita Grand Opera perform La Boheme in October 2016. I had never been in the Century II Center, although I've been outside it plenty of times and have visited similar venues for concerts. The ample seating was very necessary for the large audience La Boheme attracted! (I was pleasantly surprised... More

Well worth the price to go and see. our seats were 5th row from the stage. Again, it was amazing. If you have a chance to go... More

My wife and I have seen several productions here, the latest being "Wicked " an absolutely brilliant show. Whilst we were able to see from our balcony seats we found them a bit far to see any specific details of the cast. Seats a bit closers next time I think. Will definitely be back.

What a wonderful production. We are so blessed to have such great talent and a great venue to see shows like this. Cast was amazing and sound and music was outstanding. This show is a favorite of ours.
