The arena features two ice skating rinks...one main one and then a smaller community rink. The main arena will seat 5,782 people while the smaller community rink will hold about 300. It is a new arena that opened back in 2013...so its in pristine condition.
There is a small parking lot at the arena itself and they direct all overflow parking to the Bryce Jordan Center for big events. Every time we have attended either a varsity hockey game or an ice skating event at the arena...we have paid for parking. Just an FYI on that ($5.00 per car).
As with all ice arenas...it is chilly inside. If you are going to sit and watch a game or skating event I highly suggest that you dress appropriately. I always take a light-sweater or jacket in with me. In addition, you can NOT bring in outside foods or beverages. The last time we were there (September) they weren't allowing big bags, backpacks, etc. through the doors either. We had to put a few personal belongings in a large plastic baggie and take them in that way. I don't know if it is like that for all events or not.
They do offer food, snacks and refreshments for purchase. Just be forewarned, I found them to be pricey and some of the items were not very good...if you know what I mean. If possible, eat before you go!
