We recently attended an NHL game here and there is not a bad seat in this place. The staff is very helpful, lots of food and beverage options and an awesome sound system.

This is a very large venue, but the sound is great. Have watched Disney on Ice as well as Sting/Peter Gabriel tour. They both were well served by the location, and also just steps to dozens of restaurants, bars, other entertainment.

BlueJackets vs. RedWings. Great seats, lots of activities projected on the big screen in the down time. A lot of fun! Variety of food and beverage vendors, lots of easy access restrooms, beautiful location with easy parking garage access a short distance away. Great experience!

I recently took my daughter and her friend to the Nationwide arena for a Disney on Ice show. Our seats were in 2nd tier, left of the corner of the stage. Excellent view and perfect sound from the production numbers. If you going for a group event, you must use the lower level ticket office to get your tickets. Otherwise,... More

This place doesn`t have a bad seat in the arena. All kinds of restuarants in and around the area. Love watching the Columbus Blue Jackets play here.

Disney puts on a top notch show for kids of all ages. The music was amazing and the skaters were terrific. Tip: There were eight of us and we should have consolidated into fewer than three cars because garage parking is $15 per vechicle.

Have been to numerous Bluejackets(NHL) games, concerts and other huge events like Monster Jam, WWE. It also is home to open house events and not too long ago the NHL All Star game. Excellent venue, not a bad seat in the house.

We came to a hockey game supporting the visiting team...and still had a great experience. The location is convenient but in a friendly, walkable part of downtown. The arena itself is very attractive inside. A lot of attention has been paid to the fan experience, from things for kids and adults to do in the concourses, to a few local... More

Enjoyed watching a win by the Blue Jackets. Walked around and found out that if you want more than just the hot dogs and pretzels kind of food you need to go to the second floor. They have stir fry and a carving table up there. Great place to walk around during breaks and people watch.
