Have visited the Schott several times for basketball, concerts and hockey. Great experience every time. Plenty of parking and shuttle buses running non stop. Facilities are clean and the staff is friendly. Will continue attending events here for a long time to come.

The Shott is a great place to view an event. Accessibility is good for disabled also. There is enough restrooms and concession stands for large crowds
