My son had a game there and the view was great. There is even a concession stand to stay warm in and grab a snack. Like most rinks, it is COLD.

Some of the new prime seating has yet to be installed but if the renos completed to date are any indication, it will be very well done... More

Home to hockey games, builder and camper shows and other large events for the Flint area. The arena is getting old, but it's the largest indoor space in the flint area for special events.
