Best Seats For a Concert at INTRUST Bank Arena
The most common seating layout at INTRUST Bank Arena for concerts is an end-stage setup with the stage located near sections Section 119, Section 120 and Section 121. For many concerts there are also slight variations to the layout, which may include General Admission seats, fan pits and B-stages.
On the Floor: Sections Floor 1, Floor 2, Floor 3 and Floor 4 are Floor Seats, which offer some of the closest views of the performers. For many concerts, floor sections are added or removed. These performer-specific adjustments may alter the floor layout and the views from each floor section.
To the Side of the Stage: For close views of the stage with a little bit of elevation, consider seats to the side of the stage in Section 101, Section 102 and Section 117. The view is not head-on like on the floor, but many of the seats are closer to the stage, provide better elevation and are actual stadium seats.
Even upper level sections offer unobstructed sitelines. Just keep in mind that you won't be able to see as much detail from these seats as you would if you sat closer to the stage.
Consider the Following When Buying Concert Tickets
Seats behind the stage are occassionally sold: Unless your main objective is to just get in the building, you'll want to completely avoid anything behind the stage - like those in/near or above sections Section 119, Section 120, Section 121 and Section 122. It's unlikely the performer will turn around to salute you - and you're more likely to be completely blocked out from seeing the show.
If you're on the shorter side (or bringing kids), consider floor seats only in the first few rows: The most common complaint amongst floor ticketholders is that they can't see the stage because of taller people in front of them. As an alternative, consider side sections near the stage that will still have you close and high enough to see.
Lower level side sections are not created equal: While the side sections closest to the stage are top-notch, side sections farther from the stage may leave you with a cramp in your neck. Sections 105 and 114 are not well-angled towards the stage - leaving you to turn your head for an ideal view. Instead, consider head-on sections in the lower level or even close side seats in the upper level like 216 and 217.
Lower level baseline seats will come right up to the baseline on either side for basketball games at INTRUST Bank Arena. These are not the best seats in the house, but are still closer due to the arena's more intimate setting.
There is a potential of having some blocked views or distractions in this location. The basket can sometimes be in the way along with photographers, cheerleaders, or band members depending on the event. If you are looking to avoid this, sit in the higher lettered rows. The sections get much steeper as you go up.
Lower Level Corner (Basketball) Seating
The lower level corners offer a wide variety of views at INTRUST Bank Arena. For being closest to the action, sit in sections 101, 105, 114, or 118. These sections are located just beyond the baselines. The downside to these seats is that they are not angled toward the action.
If if comfort is important to you, sections 108, 111, 121, and 124 are your best options. These seats might not get you right up to the action, but they are angled toward the court which means you can sit back and see the game without any discomfort.
Lower Level Sideline (Basketball) Seating
The lower level sideline seats at INTRUST Bank Arena are about as good as you can get for a basketball game here. There is no wasted space as the layout allows these sections to come right up to the court, giving fans an ideal placement to see every bit of the game.
Sections 116 and 103 will be located directly at half court while the touching sections will be within the baselines. No matter where you sit in this location the distance from the game will be no further than if you were watching the game in a high school gym.
Upper Level Baseline (Basketball) Seating
If you are looking to save some money the upper level baseline location at INTRUST Bank Arena will be one of the best places to look.The 200 level baseline seats are some of the furthest away from the court. However, they can often be some of the cheapest for a basketball game as well.
If you are afraid of heights, avoid the top rows (S-V) as they are among the highest in the stadium. If you are sitting in these rows, be ready to make a steep climb to these seats. While these are not the best seats within INTRUST Bank Arena, they are still much closer in comparison to much larger basketball arenas.
Upper Level Corners (Basketball) Seating
The upper level corner sections are a good place to compromise if you are on a budget, but still want to keep an O.K. view of the game. These seats, raised above the 100 level seats, offer a higher and angled view of the game.
Like all other upper level sections at INTRUST Bank Arena, there is a steep incline to the top of each section. With the tunnels being toward the bottom of the sections, most fans will need to make their way up some steps to their seats. The best seats in this location are in sections 206 and 225. These sections are smaller, lower, and more centered compared to the others.
Upper Level Sideline (Basketball) Seating
The upper level sidelines are the best seats on the 200 level. These seats are only located on the North side of the building as the South is only suites. If you have seats in these sections, be ready to walk up some steep stairs. The tunnels come in at the bottom and each row goes up a good amount.
No section is located directly at half court, but if you are looking to be as centered as possible look at sections 215 and 216. Otherwise, all sections will still provide you with a view of the game at a comfortable angle.
