Review of Santander Arena

Attraction details
Reviewed 4 September 2013

We went for the American Idol concert. It was my first trip to this venue. The seats are tiny! I am not a tall person at all, and has no leg room at all - worse then airplane seating. The woman sitting next to me was plus size, and hung over her seat, so her whole left side was hanging on me the whole concert.

You are close to all the action of minor league hockey. The Reading Royals hockey team is great to watch and you can keep up with the game as the speed is not quite as fast as the NHL.
Great place to see shows as the seats are close to the stage no matter where you sit.

Have been there many many times. Concerts, kids ice shows, royals hockey games, etc. great staff, clean, easy to navigate. Lots of inexpensive close parking garages.

What a great venue for concerts, ice hockey and more. Security for the venue is great, parking is readily available in many close parking garages (for a small to moderate fee, depending on the entertainment scheduled). And the food is pretty good but slightly pricey
