This was my first trip to a Hornets game in a while. I brought two of my sons and we had a great time. There was lots to choose from in concessions and the lines moved quickly because of several self-service tablets to order from at each location. There were several entrances and we got in quickly. They opened the doors an hour and fifteen minutes before tipoff. There was a large Team Store on the bottom floor and several kiosks throughout the arena where you could find souvenirs. We were on the front row of the upper section, above the box/club seating, and I thought our views of the game were great. The tickets were much cheaper than lower level seating but since we were at the bottom of the upper level I enjoyed our spot. It doesn't appear there's a bad seat in the arena, though. We stayed at the Holiday Inn City Center and were only a block away. The hotel had a parking deck as well so we paid once to park while we were there and walked everywhere. Very convenient. We'll be back!
Great venue! We had a great time watching the game and learning from the panel. Definitely a great experience and we'll be back. Side note: They could learn a lesson or two from the Mercedes-Benz stadium bc the concession prices are high. Other than that, great place.

Was here in March of 2019 for Pink's Beautiful Trauma World Tour. We really enjoyed the show and the venue. It was easy to get to both before and after the show. Entry was not hard and it flowed smoothly. Concessions for food, drinks, and merchandise moved as well as could be expected. The sets were as comfortable as you will find in an arena. They were not great - they did not suck. Unfortunately, our seats were waaaay back but we still enjoyed the show. Even that far away the sound was good.
Getting to the Spectrum Center was easy. I parked a few blocks away and the walk and navigation to the arena was very smooth. I had great seats in section 107 behind the Magic bench. The view was very amazing, and they layout of the area present excellent sight lines.
I visited Charlotte from Atlanta to see the Charlotte Hornets play the Brooklyn Nets. Great game. It is a beautiful arena. A large crowd. It is real accessible to the LYNX light rail. I parked at the I-485 LYNX station. I had nose bleed seats. I was at the very top but still was able to see the game watching the teleprompters. I didn't pay a lot of money for the seats.
