"Lackluster views but great food"

Seat Review From Section 401, Row 10, Seat 3
Apr 2014

Comments

Don't expect great views of the court from Section 401. Aside from the long distance down to the floor, the basket blocks out the middle of the lane and you can't see anything at the top of the key. If you're sitting back in the seats and the fans just in front at row 9 are leaning forward at all, it will also be difficult the see anything along the near baseline. One saving grace is the great viewing position to the large videoboard that faces directly at the seats.

But the best part about sitting here is the great food located just behind the seats. At Row 10 it was a short 4 row walk to get to the concourse, which had a lot of great options to choose from as well as good restroom access. Some of the more notable items on the menus nearby included kimchi burritos, spicy korean beef tacos, and multiple different nacho options.

Best for... fans on a budget, partying and socializing

Avoid if... you want to watch the game

Better than having to walk down to first row

Apr 2014

Section 401, Row 10, Seat 3

The view from behind the basket is not so great. The view of the other end of the court is pretty good (the Rockets shoot there in the 3rd and 4th quarters), but the view of the near basket is really obstructed by the hoop. The entrance to the section is in the top row, so you only have to walk down about 7 or 8 rows to your seats. The walk down to the front row would be much worse. Two sections away there is a very diverse stand of food: tacos, asian, stadium food and a creamery. I had the korean bbq and they took at least ten minutes to come out. But they were worth the wait! Water was more expensive than a Red Bull, which should be a crime.

  • "Nothing special and little legroom"

    (Section 402) - -

    There isn't much special about these seats, located behind the basket on the upper seating tier. The views are not horrible as the basket only blocks out the right side of the key and the top of the three point line at the near end of the court. The leg room was cramped and even though the seats fa...

  • "Interesting Perspective Behind the Camera Well"

    (Section 415) - -

    There is a camera well right in front of these seats, so this was actually the first row of seating in this section. Sounds like a good thing since no one is in front of you, but they put up a railing so you don't attack the cameraman (or fall two feet into his camera well) and it really obstructs ...

  • "Leaning Forward Most of the Game"

    (Section 403) - -

    It was great sitting in the front row with no other fans in front to block the view, however the glass safety railing left me leaning forward to get a clear view. When sitting back normally in the seat you can still see through the glass and to the court, but found it to be very distracting and onl...
