    Parking:
    Is free. the main lots are a short 3-5 min walk, across from the curling rink, and police station. If your early enough you can snag a parking space out front of the arena. Don't expect to be able to exit really fast, multiple cars in short spaces equal some waiting. It's best to be patient. Some people like to park across division avenue near the trains, there are a few pubs around their and its a short 5 minute walk to the Arena.

    Tigers Den - Inside the Arena - under section 7.

    Food and Drink:
    The arena has multiple concessions throughout the concourse. You can buy hot dogs/hamburgers,pop,popcorn,multiple candy bars,nachos,coffee, and other goodies. Their are a couple beer stands as well as, the lounge in the Northwest end under section 7. It's best to go right when the period ends, to get the shortest concession lines. Their are also a few walk-around vendors that move throughout the stands during intermissions.


    Concourse, and movement flow
    It's always pretty full, limited moving, as you pass through various line-ups. If you go out for a smoke make sure to get a stamp, or they won't let you back in. Bathrooms: the ones at the main floor develop long lines rather quick, and their are only a couple stalls. I find its best to go downstairs, at the west ends.

    Fans have generally leveled out and are fairly welcoming to out of town fans. If you are rowdy of course their is going to be some feedback. If you bring noisemakers they will be confiscated if using any other time than a goal being scored.

    Other stuff inside:
    Souvenirs - Right Near the front Entrance, in the lobby
    Ticket Booth - Right Near the entrance, in the lobby
    Pre-game your allowed to enter the lobby, without your tickets. At the end of the first they move to the door.

    Be sure to pick up some 50/50 tickets, surprising large pots compared to many others barns.

    Great thread. As a Rebels fan I've been wanting to see a game in the Hat for some time now, but it never seems to work out. Appreciate the info.
