So nice for a concert because it is a smaller venue. So much better than driving into Chicago. Nice hotels close by and just so relaxed and easy getting into and out of the concert. Would definitely recommend.

Have attended for several years for high school basketball. Several entrances and areas to congregate outside of the actual arena. Location of the "Experience" is nice for fans.

The employees and security were professional, yet friendly. The center itself seemed well-maintained for the most part. The only negative was a missing door in one of the stalls in the ladies room.
