Medium size arena (around 11 000 seats). Great view to the court. The seats are really confortable however not a lot of legroom. The price at the concession are reasonable. Lots of parking around the arena.

We really enjoyed the Rochester Americans (Amerks) hockey game at the Blue Cross Arena. We have been attending events here for over 30 years! So much fun, and not a bad seat in the house.

We went to the Blue Cross Arena for a Neil Diamond Concert and sat in the lower level. I was surprised how well the sound system was in this arena. Much better than some of the other arenas I've attended.

Great stadium for watching the Rochester Americans AHL Team. Parking is near by and the prices won't set one back too far - affordability is dependability!

There are many parking garages within 1 block of the arena. The parking lot at the Arena is reserved for those with disabilities.

There are nearby ramps for parking. I park in the lot directly across the street where the court building is. There's ample parking there as well as an elevator if you have to park in the lower levels. I hope this is helpful
