Attended a NBA Thunder game, it was exciting. Easy parking, mild traffic before and after game. Great venue and great value. There are many alternate routes to this arena, police were present before and after the game to assist drivers and pedestrians. The staff were so helpful and hype unlike other arenas I have visited. Very clean, easy to find... More

I like this better than the BOK in Tulsa. They definitely have more bathrooms and concessions which are both a plus... and it's a little cheaper too.

Was able to get great seats close to the stage for the BonJovi concert. Were there about 15 minutes after the doors opened and no line to get through security. There were lines for souvenirs and concessions, but probably no worse than usual. Seats in lower section were very comfortable and had reasonable leg room. Bathrooms were fairly close and... More

Saw Thunder games vs. the Cavaliers and the Warriors, my first NBA games. The arena is easy walking from downtown hotels and Bricktown. Entry security staff were polite and efficient, but to avoid 10-minute lines, go near opening time. There are 4 entrance gates. Hallways are roomy and well lit. Seats were pretty easy to find and reach, and nicely... More

Won free tickets to an OKC Thunder game and our seats were behind the backboard as high as you can go, obviously not the best seats in the house. Yet, we were able to see just fine and really enjoyed ourselves. Facility was very nice; friendly and helpful staff; lots of activities for fans -- just a great time overall.

My family and I attended our first professional basketball game and the Thunders did not disappoint. Our seats were near to the floor and we saw every minute of the action. They had workers getting the crowd involved, even when it was a time out, planning to return in February 2017.

We went to see the PBR (Pro Bull Riding) competition and found the facilities to be very clean and the staff to be very friendly. Our seats in section 116 were great for the show.

Good fan experience at a recent OKC Thunder Game. Engaging crowd "entertainers" and decent food availability, including premium wine, beer and child-friendly offerings.
