- Over the last couple of years the Coliseum has really stepped up their dining options. Beyond the standard sporting event fare, there are a number of specialty options bringing something a little more gourmet and special to the legions of Komet fans. These include Appleseed Burger Co., Slice'D and Wok This Wayne, plus many other delicious eats and treats! Even with all of the great new places to grab a bite, my favorite place to hit up during a game is the Edy's Ice Cream Parlor on the main concourse. You will can find me there between the 2nd and 3rd period getting a kiddie cup of cookies and cream ice cream nearly every game!
- Parking at the Coliseum on game night can be a little much, especially when there's another event going on in another area of the building. Patience is key - and makes for a much more pleasant experience! There is plenty of parking in the Coliseum parking lot, but when you have 9,000 people congregating in one place, at the same time, it can be a little rough. We always like to get to the games a little extra early (45-30 minutes before game time) to ensure that we have a smooth time in the parking lot and don't have to battle any traffic. After the games there is a mad dash to the parking lot which not only makes it congested for the cars, but people trying to walk to their cars too. Hang back, relax and take your time! Giving yourself a little extra time before and after will get you in and out of the lot much quicker, while also making it a more calm experience too.
- There are plenty of chances to be involved during the games. If you think the kids (or even you) will get a little antsy during the game, the Komets team is excellent at providing a little crowd participation. From games in the crowd and on the ice during intermission, to all of the various fun cams you can get caught on, you'll have fun beyond just the game! To participate in the games you can sign up for a chance to be picked to play before each Komet home game at their info box at the 200 level.
- Treat yourself to Premium Seating at least once, it's fantastic. When the Coliseum expanded the arena in the early 2000s, my grandpa upgraded his season tickets to Premium Seating. There are different levels within Premium Seating and we have Club Seats. Club Seats offer a more spacious way to watch a game with extra padded chairs, more leg room and also the ability to order food and drinks right from your seat! While many people rent Club Seats year round for access to during other events held in the arena, these seats are made open to the public four days prior to an event. There are also Luxury Suites available that are great for hosting parties, big families, and company outings. I highly suggest splurging at least one if you can! The Coliseum and Premium Seating staff does an excellent job.
Let's go Komets - Fort Wayne Komet Hockey is back!
