Very nice facility, but few restrooms

The facility is HUGE. We had a conference of over 1000 people and it seemed as if we did not make a dent in filling the place up. The front rooms have a great view of the Gulf... read more

The facility is HUGE. We had a conference of over 1000 people and it seemed as if we did not make a dent in filling the place up. The front rooms have a great view of the Gulf, Harbor, and U.S.S. Lexington. Food was plentiful at the banquest but cold. With over 110 tables the staff ran ragged. Just serving... More

This was such an exciting spectacular which kept the crowd up close and personal. Great cowboys doing what cowboys do ... bull riding, cattle roping, bronco riding and so many other events. A great event for families.

Ice Rays games are a good deal. Tickets are relatively inexpensive, parking is very close to the arena, seats are wide open, all in all its easily worth it.

We came to Corpus for a Train Concert at the American Bank Center. Door opened a hour early which was great as we just got to our hotel and did not have time to eat, so we were able to eat at the show. Older facility that has been renovated, but not at all modern. Not a very large facility,... More

No come and go. No backpacks. No big bags. No camera bags. Tickets unexchangeable and nontransferable. No comfortable seating.

I went for a basketball and hockey game, and both were very fun to watch. If you are a student at TAMUCC, bring your sand dollar ID to the basketball games, and you get in free. It was a nice place; the restrooms are clean. Of course the food is a bit expensive; for hot chocolate is $6

My husband and I were in town for the weekend and saw the Convention center from the hotel. I saw that there is a local hockey team so we walked over and caught a game. The ticket office was friendly and tickets were very reasonable for the size of the arena. The beer selection kind of sucks but it is... More

A wonderful venue for anything! Visited during the Roar by the Shore MC Rally in Oct. Plenty of parking, easily accessible from all sides. Great views of the shore & USS Lexington. Grounds very well maintained, clean restrooms. Enjoyed
