“Great place for a concert”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2013

We were here again for the 1D concert . The stadium is a good size. It's clean and concessions was no problem. No complaints. The parking is just ok, but considering you have to pay for parking, they might want to organize it a tad more during the big events like 1D and BTR.

“Great place to see a concert or sporting event”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2013

Not to big and not to small. This place holds roughly 11-12 thousand people so its perfect size. Easy to navigate with plenty of parking and shuttle service if park in the boon docks. It shares the lot with Hersehy Park. I have been here many times and i have never had a bad time.

“12 bucks to park seems like a rip”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2013

This isn't the easiest venue to park at. You think with it being AT hershey park you it'd be a cinch. Not so my friend. There's one way in where 3 lanes open to about 16 and you get shuttled thru toll gates to pay you 12 bucks to park. This is an extremely slow process. You then drive in a loop 3 lanes wide to park in the lot across the road from the venue (no biggie, there's a catwalk) the 2 right hand lanes are for the lot entrance (marked with cones) and they force you to bottleneck to a single lane right at the lot entrance. No warning. ust a bunch of college kid employees standing there looking around while cars in the left lane run out of road. Stay left, go to one of the next 4 or 5 entrances and then keep far right.
I recommended an hour for the lenght of visit to give yourself plenty of extra time to get thru the parking toll gates proir to a show. Oh and bring lots of cash for beers. 1 pint= $10.50. BAZINGA! got me again!

“Shocking”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2013

This was our first time to the Giant Center for a concert. First, we were shocked that we paid $12 for parking. Then we tried to get a beer from one of the kiosk and they said the taps were not turned on yet and this was an half an hour till the show. We only could find one set of bathrooms and the lines were long, even for the men. Other venues there are bathrooms all over. At least the concert was excellent.

“Hockey”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2013

Good place to see hockey on the lower level, not the higher levels. Value is average, but the price of food and drink are a bit to high. Concerts are ok there as well, but on the lower level too.
