This was a very nice venue. Clean, plenty of restrooms, easy to get around. We had seats in the upper bowl, section 4. Our friend complained that the first row view was blocked due to railings but we had great seats in the second row....More

Hi Amrd212, Thanks for the review! We will notify our sound team of the issue.

Great seating, right on time, stages set correctly. The only thing is the Sound system could be better. I have noticed each band brings their own but the accoustics must be bad.

Hi Marge, Thanks for the review! I will let our sound team know about the sound, but you are correct that arena shows bring their own in.

I attend every year. Among multiple other events at this location. A bit pricey on the food but what place isn't where entertainment is provided?

What a huge facility to host the IESA State Chess meet and the Peoria Area Home Show all on the same weekend. Plenty of space and parking. It did not seem congested at all. The facility was clean.

Our whole family met for a Valentines weekend in Peoria. Our son got hockey tickets. Very nice venue! The Rivermen hockey team were entertaining. It was nice to catch the free shuttle from our hotel. Loved every minute!

We went for a concert. We had a stand in a line to get in, but that was because of the security measures. Once inside getting to our seats was easy. Vendors for food or drinks are all over.

The seat was fine(I too am plus size)...but they are squeezed in for maximum they could get in the theatre. I was on main floor and arm to arm with next seat occupiers!
