We saw Disney on Ice. The movement around the aren and its parking lot was very organized. Show was excellent as were the seats and condition of the arena. Not a bad seat in the house.

I watched a high school state championship game tonight. They have a very nice court and the facilities are nice. Like any other sports arena/stadium all food and beverages are expensive. I paid $6.75 for an Italian sausage sandwich. The place is clean, workers friendly and helpful and plenty of Parking. Very close to HersheyPark Amusement Park and Hershey Chocolate... More

I have been to the Giant Center for many different events. Being a hockey fan, my favorite events are the Hershey Bears games. There really isn't a bad seat in the arena and the people working there are wonderful and seem to love their jobs. Prices for tickets are reasonable and food is your typical arena/stadium food. Great place to... More

Great venue, low prices, good seats everywhere, great for the participants, great for the fan, food a bit expensive and a somewhat cumbersome entrance. They do a fantastic job on working for seating for handicap persons. Lots of fun

The Giant center is a nice place to go with the Family when a show is in town or when the Hershey Bears are playing a game. Been here several times and it's a pretty nice place. Easy to get to and easy parking. The Food and Drink are typical arena food with high prices for what you get to... More

I've seen many events at the Giant Center and I don't have any complaints about the venue itself. But it's important to be mindful of where you park. If you don't pay very close attention, it's easy to lose your vehicle.

The place hosts a lot of great events from Bears hockey to the Harlem Globetrotters. Seating is relatively comfortable and there really isn't a bad seat in the place. I have this as an average review due to the lack of concessions they had open. We stood in line for a good 20 minutes to buy cold nachos and bottled... More

Attended to watch my son wrestle for a state medal. Place is very clean including bathrooms. Everyone was very kind and courteous. It is just expensive to purchase any food or drink. My children and I had a great time although our team did not place.

You would not expect a venue as nice as the Giant Center in a town the size of Hershey. It is first class. They performers are world class and the variety of performers draws folks from miles around!
