Royals games are an all around great time. Don't miss out on Stouts microbrew stands! Any seat at the game will do as long as ur sitting next to a good friend!

My wife and I went to see Casting Crowns. Wow, what an excellent experience. The sound was the best, the lighting was awesome. We sat at the 2nd row so that was even better.

This arena is small, quite small. But there is not a bad seat in the house, that's the honest truth! Snacks and beverage choices are just above average. If you have the opportunity to get tickets to a show here, do it

Delicious menu and we loved the atmosphere! This is not your average Mexican food restaurant...the ambience is cool with dark lighting and chic decorating. The food has an upscale modern twist and is delicious!!!!

The arena was well laid out. All types of food, beer and wine. Seats are hard so plan accordingly. The traffic and parking were horrendous. And a freight train decided to pass by the front of the arena making a bad situation even worse. The...More

We have tickets for the Pit for Miranda. Got them at Presage and it says only available at Will Call. Also it mentioned Pit is standing only. Is that correct and what time do we need to arrive to pick up tickets to ensure a good place in front?

You enter the arena at any of the doors and look for entrances that lead you to the floor - there are several. Once inside the curtain, a host will take you to your seat in the pit. Since you have your seats, you do not need... More
