    tickets to sit on the glass are not very expensive (especially compared to NHL tickets) and make for a great hockey game date night if you love hockey! the GR AHL team is pretty good!

    Great size for an arena. Anywhere you sit you can still see and enjoy the event. Great views all around!

    Love coming to Griffins hockey games! Seats are affordable and all the seats have a great view! Come on Friday nights for $2 beers and hot dogs.

    Venue and performance awesome. Someone kicked a used tampon under my feet. Staff was on it and cleaned it up. We were on the floor. I had to help sweep it in the dust pan. Almost lost my stomach.

    If you're going to a Griffins game and have 10 or more people in your group, you can get fee-free and discounted tickets!

    We are always taking applications. You can find them in the guard station, located just inside the employee entrance in the southeast corner of the arena.

    The epicenter of Grand Rapids entertainment, this is home to the area's largest concerts. Perfect sound, lighting, and almost always a guaranteed good time.

    The best speaker setup in Grand Rapids, expensive beer though. Make sure you get your buzz on before you go in!

    Watch out for drunk college girls in large groups. Easy to spot. Not dressed for a hockey game whatsoever, high pitched voices, and wasted after 2 beers.

    Quick 'In / Out' of the Arena ... park at one of the City of Grand Rapids Ramps that's a block or two away from the Arena - NOT the one across the street!

    Form actual lines for concessions & don't stop walking when on the concourse. Especially on busy nights. Use your brains a little.

    Smaller arena built for sound, even nosebleed seats are decent!

    The security made us stand out in the freezing cold with tons of room in the warm lobby. And the security guards were heartless and inmane

    $2 hotdogs should last more than 18 minutes. Nice promotion, but good luck getting one.

    Tip your concession stand volunteers. These donations directly proceed the non-profit organizations that the stand is being ran by!
