I found the building. How much do I need for parking?
Parking is 8 dollars. Unfortunately, there is no alternative parking site.
OK I'm in the parking lot. Where should I park?
Following the game, the Arco Arena parking lot is jam packed. It is best to park near the exit. Yes, it is a good walking distance from Arco, but it will save you time after the game.
I'm inside Arco Arena. What's the food situation?
The prices for food have been raised again and, like most sports stadiums/arenas, Arco Arena features expensive food. Menu items include: the King Dog ($4), regular Arena dog ($2.75), chicken sandwich ($4.25), nachos ($4.25), popcorn ($3.75), candy ($2.50), Red Ropes ($1.75), peanuts ($3), ice cream (waffle cone $3.75, cup $3.25), personal pizzas, pretzels, soft drinks, Java City coffee, and of course, beer. New to Arco Arena this year is the Sushi Bar behind Section 107. Food vendors roam the aisles of the arena with peanuts, candy, cotton candy, sodas, water, malts, Haagen Daz ice cream bars, and more.
So far so good. It's halftime. What should I do?
Always featured at Kings games are halftime entertainment shows. Sometimes these can be interesting. Other times they can be a bore. During the break, I suggest checking the Kings team store which features a wide variety of Kings merchandise including jerseys, shirts, hats, and more. Use the restroom, pick up an ice cream, and return to your seat for the second half.
The game is over. Do I have to go home now?
Not immediately. Following each Kings game Grant Napear interviews one of the key members of the game at center court with the interview broadcast througout the arena. After the interview, make your way to the Arco Arena Skyline Lounge for the postgame show. Hang out with Grant Napear, Jim Kozimor, and others and discuss the game while competing in various trivia contests. If you have to go home immediately after the game, find the exit as quickly as possible because, as I said earlier, the parking lot is packed. If you parked near the exit, you should have no trouble getting out.
Repeat process as many times as you can afford.
