  • We have had a great convention here. The arena was very clean and neat. The staff was very helpful and professional. Everything went very smoothly and we all would be happy to come back here again. The surrounding area is filled with great shops and restaurants. Dallas is a fun and exciting city with a lot to offer.
  • Very nice facility. Clean and a good selection of vendors for food and drinks. However, the seats are incredibly tiny and there are far too few women's bathrooms. After a 20 minute intermission there were still women waiting in lines with nearly vacant men's rooms. Getting out of the parking lot also took a while but not too terrible. I would definitely come see a show here again.
