We have visited Ahoy for the North Sea Jazz Festival 3 times and found it to be a very well run/organised venue. Staff at the varies food and drinks places are very pleasant. Good public transport links.

Great place for concerts. Has a HUGE parking lot for both cars (paid) and bikes (free). Feels very luxurious once you're inside. It's also very easy to reach by metro and bus! Caesar Milan has been there :D

The whole reason for our trip was to support someone in the BMX world championships being held at the Ahoy stadium. The stadium itself was good, with comfortable seating and a good view of the arena. However they were only using one entrace to the actual arena and at the end of the day when everyone was trying to get back downstairs to the exits they only had one esculator going down with the rest going up, it took ages to get out. There are plenty of places to get food and drink and the prices seemed reasonable

Excellent venue for the BMX. The only minor issue is that if you sit moving around is difficult because there is no room for the legs.

Although the stadium area is nice, at least for the concert we were there to watch, I found two major faults with the venue.

Firsly, and most importantly, it took us more than an hour to leave the premises after the concert, and that is counting from the moment we were inside the car! We payed 17 euros for the parking and when it was time to leave we had to wait to exit through one gate that was big enough for a single car to go through at a time and there were five different queues from that whole parking area lining up to this particular gate. And what made things worse, just after the gate there was a traffic light that added to all the delay. It was extremely frustrating and it ruined an otherwise wonderful experience. For a venue of this size, this is unacceptable.

Secondly, I found that the seats weren't spacious or comfortable in the least. We were touching the people seated next to us at all times and there wasn't enough room for our legs to be comfortable. In order for them to fit more seats in the least amount of space, the stands had very steep inclination and therefore not only did we not have enough distance from the row in front of us, but if we wanted to go to get refreshments, there was a real danger of falling onto the row below.
