Beautiful arena, although I've witnessed a lot of sadness here as a CBJ fan. Arena is clean and staff is professional. Great place to catch an event...I've seen hockey, basketball, concerts, Rodeo, and monster trucks here and always had a good time.

We attended Garth Brooks concert here in April. Only complaint is seats are close together and rows were very steep and narrow. Staff was friendly and helpful!

This is one of the best arena's in the country for hockey and any event. Plenty of parking and only a short walk a way. There is also a good variety of restaurants surrounding the arena.

The Blue Jackets have the theme. The arena flows with red, white and blue. This is a well designed arena. The seats are up at the action and rise fairly steeply so that the upper tiers are over the ice. It's a good idea. We...More
