They sell out early because they pre-sell hundreds of tix to the "scalpers" who then sell them to the public for much higher prices.

This is a beautiful NHL hockey arena. I parked a couple of blocks south and it was only about $10. The concession area has wide berths to walk around without bumping into so many people. Kind of different food options but I would recommend that...More

I was here for the Mumford and Sons concert March 11. The venue was clean, and the employees were respectful. My seats were high up but still heard everything clearly and saw almost everything. 10/10 would recommend go here for any concert

After receiving favourable reviews, I decided to catch a game while traveling I75 north. Grabbed an eticket on Gametime App (highly recommended). Parking is priced $10-$20 on surrounding lots requiring 5 min walk. Crowds friendly with well coordinated security at doors. After an elevator ride...More

Attended the Columbus Blue Jackets game. Sat up high, but still a great seat. Lots of good food choices at reasonable prices -- but the $5 for a bottled water seemed a bit ridiculous. Plenty of parking nearby. Loved the high five from the employees...More

Our conference was walking distance to hockey, pubs, shopping and the market. Great area! What a fun place to watch hockey! Our group especially liked all the photo opportunities! We look like Blue Jackets in the photos!

Any gate works well... all of them give you easy access. I would chose by the parking lot that will make your life easier when the show is over. Go to the arena website, look at the gates and parking lots. Normally the... More
