This is a nice arena, we have been a few times to see the Providence Bruins play the bears. Its a nice arena, with many different options for food. The people are typically very nice even to those cheering for the opposing team. If you're a hockey fan, this is a good place to take in a game. The Bears... More

Great smaller hockey venue with a very good selection of concessions and a great crowd. Easy access, 6 or so minutes from the hotel to the parking lot. Exiting was not so great 20 - 25 minutes driving through, what seemed, the entire Hershey Park complex. Exiting was worse then that form similar facilities in major cities.

My family and I made our annual trek to Hershey at Christmastime, and we attended the Hershey Bears game at Giant Center on December 17, 2016. The morning snow and ice made the parking lot a bit of an adventure, but no problems. Naturally, the Bears' game was fun (even though Hershey lost), and the Giant Center is an excellent... More

Every year we make it a habit to go as a family to a Hershey Bears game. Live hockey is very exciting and the Bears make it a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The arena is beautiful and the crowd is family friendly. My young children and teenage daughter equally love the games. I guiltily wish there were more fights. I've seen... More

PROS: * line to get through security and get in moved quickly, despite a lot of people * amazing sound and visual effects, even from far away * cup holders at most seats CONS: * have to wait in line outside, which is only bad in inclement weather * very steep and narrow in the upper section * very crowded...

I've done many concerts at different arenas and have to say the Giants Arena was the absolute worse.

I attended the Hershey Bears game on 12/17/16. Tickets are reasonably priced for the AHL. The game was good. Eat before you go in and keep your kids away from the gift shop. The prices are no better than an NHL arena.

Make sure that you arrive 45 minutes to 1 hour before the show so that you can get parking which is $9 and get yourself through security before you go to your seat. The staff were plentiful, extremely polite and helpful. They helped us by taking us directly to our seats and informed us along the way of the amenities... More

Kudos to the center!!!! On Dec. 15th my daughter and 2 teenage grandsons along with many friends from our area attend the rally. Arriving at 3:30pm to assure a good view. My concern was the severe weather conditions. We had frigid temperatures and extremely high winds. The kindness and concern by the staff opened the doors for the crowd. We... More

We have been to Hershey Park multiple times but never to the Giant center. Parking is arranged like Hershey Park where they funnel you to toll gates ($9 for general parking) and then you follow the parking attendants to a spot. I highly recommend parking near an exit. The reason being is that at the end of the show, several... More
