Have gone to two Amerks games this year and both were overtime wins! Good venue for hockey and concession prices are not as high as some other sports venues

Great venue to watch a hockey game! Any seat is a good one to see the Amerks. Fans are very loyal and the Amerks can surely hit a puck!

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
