  • Great venue for sports and entertainment. Great views from all seats and a very open atmosphere. I've seen plenty of hockey games and a few concerts and the sound system is amazing. Have the standard food as well as a few upscale places to get better food. The pulled pork nachos are a big hit for pens games.
  • Great place to see a concert! Easy to get in and out of and easy to navigate around while inside. I suggest getting your drinks from the kiosk vendors rather than going to the Captain Morgan Club bar. The bartenders there are mind bogglingly slow at times. I'm not sure if they are told to slow roll the drinks to keep the crowd under control or not, but sometimes you'd think they weren't making tips.
