    This stadium was built in 2000 & is home to the Columbus Blue Jackets. Some fans who frequent the arena claim to see paranormal activity here because the land used to be occupied by a prison.

    First time seeing the Blue Jackets and had a great time. Cool team shop, and the entertainment during intermissions was great. Ushers were very helpful, as I needs a charging station for my phone.

    Stop by Section 116 on the Bud Light Terrace and say hi to the @Jacket Backers, the Official Booster Club of the Columbus Blue Jackets! Pick up info about membership, road trips and other activities!

    Great arena, beautiful indoors and out, but the crowd is a bit too subdued even when they score goals, and I saw them score 8!

    Excellent venue to go watch them CBJ win, and the cannon is deep inside these walls, for those about to rock FIRE.

    That's a really nice arena, too bad the hockey team is to say the least not that good, this arena deserve a better team, but it will be home of the 2013 NHL All Star Game.

    If you in the mood for Skyline, the chili cheese fries are the better deal. For the same price as two cheese coneys you and someone else can eat from them and be full.

    Beautiful facility. Look for the craft beer stands, sprinkled throughout - no need to settle for a bud light during the game.

    One of the highest scoring games of Tournament history happened here in 2007 when Tennessee and Long Beach St. accumulated 207 points. Not bad for an arena best known for its hockey team.

    CBJ tickets for $10 each sold two hours before each home game. Get here early because they only sell 250 or so. Limit of four tickets a person.

    Accidentally bought club level tickets for a concert and they were great. This is probably the better of the two arenas for concerts.

    Fanatic Fact: Team officials named the franchise the Blue Jackets: celebrating patriotism, pride and the rich Civil War history in the state of Ohio.
