A bit difficult to access from the interstate, parking and traffic before and after the Springsteen show was surprisingly easy. Nice, modern facility, very clean though I've... read more

This review is based solely on a recent concert attended at the facility. First complaint-no separate entrance for handicapped persons. An older person in a wheelchair had to wait in a rather long line outside before the doors were opened. Which leads to the second issue-once the doors opened 90 minutes before the show, they wouldn't allow you to go... More

A bit difficult to access from the interstate, parking and traffic before and after the Springsteen show was surprisingly easy. Nice, modern facility, very clean though I've heard better acoustics.

Value City Arena is a great place to host the OHSAA Basketball State Championships. It gives high school kids the chance to play on an elite college basketball team's court! I defiantly recommend attending Value City Arena to support THE Ohio State Buckeyes or your hometown high school team for the State Championship!

The Value City Arena is one of the best college venues period! Most cities don't have one nice arena but Columbus is blessed with two - Value City Arena is my favorite of the two. It might be because the Buckeyes play there or when Bruce Springsteen comes to town he plays there. Regardless of what the activity you can't... More

Loved my experience watching the jackets play here. Very nice location to catch a game and not a bad seat in the house...

My group drove about 2 hours to see Cirque here. We were very impressed with the free parking! The venue was easy to navigate, never felt crowded. The staff was very polite and helpful.

The Schott is a nice concert/athletic venues that I have had an opportunity to visit. There really isn't a terrible seat in the house. I would however recommend the Huntington Club Level, Not to high and not to low. Just right views. The Schott is probably the cleanest Arena that I have ever visited. Parking is reasonable (have paid much... More

Parking was well done, hint: enter from the north for less traffic. Seating was comfortable for a 2+ hour show with nicely padded & wide seats with ample legroom. Bathrooms were clean, but of coarse at intermission, crowded. Staffed well but not distracting. The show was well done and the special effects were outstanding! Highly recommend this venue and cirquedusoleil.

Hubby and I were in the 3rd row for the show and found the seats to be really quite comfortable with plenty of leg room but these seats were not the standard seats they were added to accommodate the unusual stage set up for the show. These seats were comfy fold up seats and when I compared them to the... More
