Mts Centre, Winnipeg Reviews - Write a Review
This is a great place to catch a game. The Winnipeg jets are great this year and I love this arena. Plenty of places for food and drinks as well and clean washrooms. There are lots of stalls and if you can go at the correct time the lines are not too bad. If you decide to use them 10 minutes Into an Intermission they tend to get a bit busy. I have also been to many concerts here and the sound is great. For hockey there isn't a bad seat In the building. Even the 300 section gives you a great view of the whole ice. The prices are a bit high but I expect $10 beers at a sporting event. Parking is the only issue and expect to pay $15 in nearby lots for event parking.
Renovations are pretty nice, the seats we had were great, all around very good time at the Jets vs Blue Jackets game even though our team seemed low energy and lost. However, $10 for a beer is out of this world.. and the face that you can't leave the building anymore is insane. Money grab money grab money grab! If they're going to trap us in there like hostages they should at least have an outdoor space available for smokers and those wanting to step out for a minute to get some 'fresh air'. I realize that nobody pities a smoker (myself included) but it's pretty ridiculous that they would prohibit people from being able to go outside in general. That's a black stain on the good name of the MTS Centre for sure. And one of the reasons it lost a star. The other star it lost is because of the outrageous cost of food and drink.
Nice venue. Even at the 300 section you get a great view of the hockey game however the seats are narrow for a a bigger guy. Both me and a friend over 6' tall and a stocky build had a tough time sitting back in our chairs because our shoulders were hanging over the next seat, had to spend %90 of a hockey game hunched over and that gets old on the back. There is however enough leg room.
My first visit to Bell MTS Place for a Jets game and it was a terrific experience. Staff were super friendly and helpful. Plenty of concessions and the concourses are gorgeous. Tried a Jets Dog which is a huge hot dog topped with perogies which was awesomely messy! Drink prices were typically high for sports event but offered a good variety of beer and mixed drinks. Plenty of sit down restaurants attached to the arena and access to skywalks to other areas of downtown. A smaller arena by NHL standards but seriously not a bad seat in the house. I sat in the very last row in the 300 level and could see everything perfect. Hope to return again one day to see another game! Truth North is top notch!
Great downtown arena. Lines can be a bit slow to get past security before events but security staff are professional and efficient. Every year it seems like there is more choice for food and beverage options.
