Black Friday, tickets to see Fleetwood Mac. Yay! However, dampening our enthusiasm was complete lack of crowd control. Doors opened at 7:00 for an 8:00 performance. The line was at least two blocks long. Many ex-hippies waited patiently in queue but a lot of "entitled"...More

The first time I went to the Golden 1 Center was to see the Eagles. Like it better than Arco Arena. Going again to see Trans-Siberian Orchestra.

First, there is no parking, you have to go to a 3rd party for parking $25 if you want to be close and not walk around this semi-creepy area at night. They didn't let people in one time to be seated, what's up with that....More

Way too expensive for average people to go there for anything. I'm disgusted that we have to pay for it! A total rip off & a funny looking building & a stupid plastic so-called piece of art outside. UGH!

attended a Kings exhibition game and the place was awesome. Had an open air feel with large bay doors raised for the game. Not your typical stadium food, with local restaurants serving delicious pizza, burgers, Mexican, Greek, Korean, you name it. You see great potential...More

Every seat has great views. To be fair, the upper level is very steep. Some people have a problem with that.

I would say it is fairly nice. We have been to many events (mostly Kings games) and have been seated in different areas and always felt just right.
