Member Review - Jillian Fisher of Jillian Fisher

Visited this arena for a hockey game and it is very clear that it isn’t designed for NHL viewing. Seats in many spots in the upper level have restricted views of the ends of the ice (meaning you can’t see the goal). The food and drink throughout the stadium are about what you would expect for stadium food, but the bottom concourse and suite levels are better if you are looking for more than your standard options. The seats are pretty comfortable throughout the stadium, and would definitely recommend for an NBA game.
