They really pack the people in and there is not a ton of space per "seat," but it was not too bad. Same with Saturday, the view and actual show were great, if a little bit squashed. Food and beer offerings were pretty typical of a stadium venue-- not awesome and slightly overpriced, but ok.My issue is with the stadium employees and their knowledge about what can and cannot be brought inside. Friday, we went through bag check-- no problem. Saturday, a man and woman at bag check tried to confiscate my camera. They kept shouting "no big camera. no big camera! (my camera is a Panasonic Lumix FZ70-- so not tiny, but still a point-and-shoot with no attachments or crazy zoom lenses or anything. At its full extension it's about an inch longer than the wide-angle). Finally another woman came and looked at it and said it was fine (while all of this was going on, the group in front of us scammed in 5 children on three tickets-- I know this because they spent the 40 minutes we were waiting in line talking about how they were going to carry the infants and make the 4-yr-olds sit in the strollers to appear younger. I don't know where they sat, but I'm sure that was WILDLY unpleasant for their neighbors). I get that there was a language barrier, and in the end we still got in and had a great night, but still-- they need to make sure their employees know what can and cannot come through the door!... less

    Great seating and the bleachers have backs. There is enough room so that your knees aren't in the back of the person in front of you. Lots of food choices. Great fun!

It is a completely open stadium, so be ready for whatever weather is coming, and we had no rain even though it looked threatening for awhile. The open area was perfect to allow all the monster jam pyrotechnics to go off and actually helped dissipate the noise (as our last monster truck show was indoors and quite a bit louder because of it). Trying to get out is difficult as the area is not too well built for dissipating traffic quickly.... less

We got there 1.5 hour prior to the start and it was already packed BUT it was so easy to get in and out of this place....what a surprise and delight! Employees were really nice and helpful. Though it's stadium style seating they don't cram you in like most places. They give you plenty of room for each person to sit and there is a back support. Bring cushions if you have them, your butt is going to hurt! They allowed people to bring in their own snacks and drinks. We were in section 319. This section was not very steep and was easy to get to our seats. Only complaint food at concession stand was terrible; cheeseburger was horrible, chicken fingers were horrible too. They had lots of vendors walking around the stadium selling selling popcorn, beer, water, peanuts, snow cones, lemonade, churros, cotton candy etc. Parking was FREE. They did have VIP parking for purchase (in advance) and that lot was right in front of the entrance. TIP: Don't be fooled about the weather in Vegas. It was nighttime and even though it was in the low 60's it was cold! Locals knew how to dress; they had jackets and blankets but tourists had to leave because they were dressed in shorts and tee shirts. A lot of people think it's hot in Vegas all year round IT'S NOT!!!!... less

    If you have the opportunity do not miss this stadium. All the main arena seats are comfortable with lean backs. They have full bar facilities and never saw a long line at the restrooms. Very clean ... moreIf you have the opportunity do not miss this stadium. All the main arena seats are comfortable with lean backs. They have full bar facilities and never saw a long line at the restrooms. Very clean and well laid out. Go see a UNLV game there. You won't be disappointed (unlike me after the whuppin' the Coogs took).... less
