Parking is a challenge here, but great venue for basketball! Snacks are limited and a bit pricey, but definitely appreciated. more »

Awesome time watching the Lady Bears!! Clean environment.. Prompt service... Very minimal waiting... Clear visuals from every angle!!. Can't wait till next event!!
Nice compact arena to watch some basketball. Traveled here as an away fan for a game that was nearly sold out. Baylor fans are respectful and a pleasure to watch a game with. Cant wait for the rematch next season!
