I took my 5 year old daughter to the circus here last night. The attendant at the gate cursed ar me and stated "I wouldn't have ******* let you in if I had known it was you". Im guessing that he thought i was someone else. I was then asked very politely not to use the mens room with my daught, later on that evening I was scolded by the attendant for using the family restroom with her because it was also the handicapped restroom. Apparently single fathers arent allowed to take their daughters to events here.

I give them one star for letting a circus that abuses animals in my opinion, be on their venue. Please cancel The circus and help to end the abuse of the animals that animals endure. If you Google the circus, You can see the allegations and citations that they have received. No animal should suffer so that others can profit. Find the video of their baby elephant standing on a cold concrete floor that looks to be in a metal storage locker, sucking his trunk. I cried my eyes out.

Honestly they should bulldoze the place down and make it a park that overlooks the scenic Hudson River.

Small arena, not a lot of parking. Only ground level seating, no upper decks. The hoops mecca of Section 2 basketball. States should be brought back to the CIA. Binghamton has no history for high school basketball.

Great hockey experience. We've gone 3 times. Parking is alittle crazy and very scattered, food prices seem reasonable. My only issue is that there are no bathrooms on the upper level. I have a knee injury and to walk all the way up from your seats, to walk down 20 stairs to the bathroom and repeat on your way back to year seats. Tough for people with leg issues.
