    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!

    I haven't seen how good the napkins are here since I haven't gotten anything to eat. I ate before I came here, so not too hungry. Maybe I'll get a cold pop if I get thirsty. Plenty of stands.

    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.

    Not only do the Griffins Games attract the college crowd, but the franchise offers a number of promotions and events for the families. An awesome time for everyone! Read more

    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.

    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

    Jamin Littell · March 28, 2011

    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.

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

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

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

  • Ryan M.

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

    Ryan Moore · August 20, 2011
  • Michael D.

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