  • When we first got there we noticed it has been maintained and was clean. So the facility was great. How it is being run though is a much different experience. Their was little to no staff directing the crowd towards lines for an orderly and fair entrance experience. Also there was 4 metal detector lines for thousands of waiting people. They were woefully under prepared. Plus we got the added lack of fresh air circulation while waiting in line. That's a perfect setting for COVID to transmit. Plus it was hot, like really hot while in line which was just over 1 hour. Once inside at our seats we found the temperature to be too hot. Sure it was hot outside but why does it have to be hot inside right?
  • Went for a graduation. They could have had more metal detectors to help move the crowd faster. Steep stairs for anyone with mobility issues. Large bathrooms and it seemed pretty clean. There weren't any bad seats.
