Mid-America Center reviews
Not the greatest setup. Followed signs to visitor entrance to find it was the vendor entrance. Then walked around the building to the real entrance. Once inside traffic flow was not any better. Tried to get a beer, but found you could not cut across. I could see the beers, but had to walk all the way around to get to them. Biggest disappointment, I was looking to upgrade my 5th wheel. I couldn't find a floor plan with 2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms and a washer/dryer like I already have.
Huge huge huge complex. My business here is dance. What a wonderful venue for dance competitions. My granddaughter dances with Cretes Edge troupe and has performed here several years in a row.
