Addition Financial Arena Reviews
Usually, attend a couple of college basketball games a year when our teams are visiting. This campus is what I would consider off the beaten path and dealing with the typical Orlando stop-and-go... more »
Been to this facility when my daughter attends UCA Camp with her team. The Arena is clean and it’s great that you can park right next to it. There is also eateries across the street. more »
This is a nice arena. Not too big where the seats are so high up in the rafters that you get queasy. It's well kept and clean. I didn't visit the restroom but there was no smell coming from it. The staff members were helpful and kind. Even the parking attendants were nice! I like this place... It's a YES from me.
Great facility for the conference we attended. Easy access throughout, lots of food and beverage options in and out of arena, plentiful clean and well-supplied restrooms, helpful staff and security. Easy to get to, well-located for hotels and other restaurant options.
