I went to the Key arena when we got 4 free box tickets to see our local hockey team the thunder birds. I must say the box seats we got were not the super expensive you see on tv, but were still quite nice! you have your own private food booths that you go to, you do still have to pay for them, but there no lines, and they bring the food to you for no additional price.. Food quality is slightly above average..The box seats are kind of far up, so I'd say not for the fan who likes to be down near the action. But the arena itself is still fairly new, though not as new as safeco field. I haven' t been to any sonics games at the arena, but my brother has and says the only bad seats are the nose bleed seats way up, but even those are exciting in the playoffs as it gets so loud you cant even hear yourself talk. A great time all around! Hockey or basketball!
