The Oncenter is very clean and well laid out. We attended the USBC Open National Bowling Tournament. It is comparable to the other venues that have hosted the event.

Visited this civic center for the annual USBC Bowlibgbtiurnament. Parking is one feature that needs to be addressed. Better get some walking shoes.

This is a perfect location for major entertainment. Wish the city would realize its value and book more activities . I search their listings continually but big gaps ..... need to hire a person who can make this building worth it's expense.

Came here for bowling tournament, this building was adiquate for the needs of the tournament. I wish there had been more furniture for friends and family to sit while I register and attend to my tasks. Plenty of bathrooms and clean.

Nice location with plenty of nearby places to visit for food. Limited facilities for food and too busy for breaks but a great venue to attend training in.

Been to many a Syracuse Crunch hockey game over the past 15 years here and have always enjoyed attending. Comfortable seating, decent bathrooms and enough variety of concessions to please most. Parking is nearby and not too expensive.
