  • big facility but great location. Staff very friendly, well maintained and cared for facilities. Small snack stand was ok but pricey. Good site for a convention with plenty to do in the area

  • I didn't actually attend an event, but I did walk for hours around the grounds which had plenty of paths surrounded by lovely landscaping. Sitting by the huge fountain was relaxing.

  • Parking is fairly easy to find if you get there when an event opens. The bathrooms need more regular cleaning. There was 1 day where the soap only worked in 1 pump within the restroom. If you come here for a convention prepare to wait in a long line if you have a regular ticket... maybe over an hour. Also bring an umbrella because you will be in straight sun. The venue itself is easy to navigate through and there is plenty of food across the street if you need further choices for cheaper (paid like 30 bucks for 2 muffins and 2 coffees).
  • We went here for a Bellator MMA event and it was awesome! Great view all around and our seats were just perfect (lower row in 117) and good AC. The arena is not too big so seems like most seats have a good view. There was plenty of drink and snack spots serving the typical event food such as nachos, pretzels, etc. Clean and nice restrooms is a plus. Seats are comfortable but a bit on the older side. Parking was $15 which is not bad compared to other venues and conveniently near the main doors so we didn't have to walk a lot. Overall we had a great experience at this convention center.
