    Any event, even if you think it's a small event, get here AT LEAST 2 hours early. It is a MADHOUSE both inside and out. Parking spaces are too skinny. Hallways are too small to accommodate much at all

    Light rail doesn't service the arena. No club seats, just suites. Visit the Skyline Restaurant on the upper level. If you need help deciding which Seats to purchase for your next Kings game, check out Read more

    I've been to sports games, conventions, and community events here. Very nice building. The upper stairs are scary, always have been. Here's hope that this building sees many more events!

    Although more than a decade has gone by, no one forgets the buzz in the arena when assist-making highlight reel Jason Williams, Chris Webber and yes, Vlade Divac, ruled the late 90s.

    Don't buy concessions until the Maloofs have been bought out. No need to give them any more of your money after they've been so horrible to our city! Arrive early to get good parking.

    You can't go wrong with a main course of Jimboy's Tacos and Leatherby's Ice Cream for dessert. Actually reasonably priced for arena food.

    Don't use the upstairs snack bar. Takes way too long (only 2 cashiers) and very limited selection. You're better off braving the concourse no matter where your seats are.

    Veggie Burger is decent. Patty is better than the fixins, but if you're starving and want something guilt free, drop the $8.

    Power Balance Pavilion is used by the NBA Sacramento Kings. It is the smallest arena in the NBA, but still ranks as one of the loudest venues in the league. Make some noise!

    Check out the Skyline Restaurant, open to all ticket holders, for a pregame buffet. It's also the location of the post game show.

    There are 2 beer stations on the main concourse that serve 22oz pours of Sierra Nevada for $10. It is the best beer deal @ Arco.

    This arena is always too hot. Yes, I am usually in the upper section, but open a door. It's 40 or 50 degrees outside. Let some air in.

    Do NOT park anywhere but Arco Arena if attending an event. You WILL be towed. We just found out first hand and $320 later. Just pay the $15 to park. :(

    Ear plugs are only a dollar at the stand. Just buy them. You'll be a lot happier.

    To clarify the price of parking ... It's $10 for kings games, $12 for everything else ... Not $15 :-)

    When coming to the arena on a non event day, always enter through toll plaza # 9

    Smallest arena in the country but from all the noise you'd never guess it even though old it just has so much history

    Fantastic Experience as the seating is designed flatter as opposite to steep well . . . .

    Eat before you go. Like most event venues, food is pricey.

    Backpacks are not allowed inside the arena. Diaper bags, purses and camera bags are OK.

    If you can find a free parking somewhere close to PBP, you'll save $10-$12
