My family and friends had a great time at the hockey game. We found it to be very entertaining and exciting for the little ones. A place you can take the entire family for a fun night.

My wife and I have attended several hockey games here. There have been recent improvements including better wifi and lighting inside the arena. I hope parking remains free which is a rarity for a venue like this.
