Normal family-friendly behavior is expected. In a nutshell, be respectful and expect to be treated with respect: no foul language, gestures, or images (on clothing); drink responsibly; no seat-swapping; no violent behavior; no smoking (except in smoking areas); and follow instructions of personnel. Violators can be kicked out and even lose their yearly subscription.
Everyone's expected to obey all laws regarding alcohol, including the observance of the legal drinking age, which is 21. To help with this, the Center offers the Good Sport designated driver program for most major sporting events, and has developed some policies. The gist: no drunken behavior; caps on size of beverages and on number of beverages per purchase transaction; no underage drinking; IDs required; possible curfew for alcohol purchases; and no alcohol ¿to go.¿ Violators can be thrown out.
Photos are okay for most events, as long as there's no flash. However, rules may change depending on the event, so call to get the scoop ahead of time. Here¿s a list of things that are never allowed: anything that takes video, anything that records sound, anything that uses flash, monopods, tripods, or any professional equipment. Management can ban other devices on the spot, at their discretion.
Kids under the age of 3 can attend all sporting events and most concerts without a ticket, but must be held by an adult and may not occupy a seat. Children 3 years of age and older require a ticket and will have a seat. Some shows may have different policies, so check on particular events by going to the specific event page or contacting guest services.
There's a wide array of cocessions for all tastes.
The venue is wheelchair-accessible. Make prior arrangements through guest services or ask right at the door to be accompanied to your seat by a complimentary wheelchair escort if needed. People may not remain in a wheelchair for the duration of an event, but escorts can help with the transfer from a wheelchair to a seat, and stow wheelchairs for people.
