Fans Visit T-Mobile Arena

from Steve Carp of the Las Vegas Review-Journal,

Steve Struve and his wife Sue looked down on the pristine ice surface below from the top of T-Mobile Arena and marveled at the view.

“This is a cathedral,” he said.

The building, which will seat 17,500 for hockey, opened its doors Monday to the city’s hockey fans, particularly the 15,500 season ticket-holders for Las Vegas’ NHL expansion team, giving them their first look of the rink.

The 200-f00t-by-85-f00t rink, which was constructed Saturday, had its boards, protective glass and netting set up. The lines were painted so there was no guessing where you might want to sit when the seat selection process is done this fall.

The Park, which is a promenade that leads to the arena from the Strip, is amazing.  There are tons of opportunities for post-game parties and get-togethers with quality bars and restaurants.  The have done their homework to make a complete fan experience.

The dickish thing MGM/AEG did, though, was to implement a parking fee at the MGM properties at the intersection of the Las Vegas Blvd and Tropicana Ave.  Yes, that day has finally come:  no more free parking on the Strip.
