Rogers Arena Tour

12 posts in this topic

Thinking of taking my cousin on the RA tour...read up on it, and it looks pretty good. Great price, but what I want to know is:

Is it worth the $ for a one hour fifteen minute tour? Has anyone ever taken it that can give me some info? Thanks!

I remember taking it WAY back in the third grade. I'm 23 now.

It was cool, but I don't remember much.

Well, you could ask some of the people that have gone on the tour. I thought there was a thread just recently but didn't find it in a quick search. Here's the ones I did find:

Considering it's only $12 bucks for Adults, how could it not be worth it?

I went two years ago (24 yrs old) and I enjoyed it. Being from Saskatchewan it was real cool to see the Canucks Arena. We went while there was a practice going on an got a good pic with Ehroff who was injured at the time. Wish we could of seen the dressing rooms, but for $24 for the wife and I it was good. It was right before playoffs too so lots of excitement, now with no hockey meh. I;d still recommend checking it out though.

Who benefits from the proceeds? If the Aquilinis, I would take your cousin to a Giants game. Almost the same price, and at least he/she can watch some good hockey played by kids who get a couple hundred bucks a month to play.

I did the tour in February 2011 & I found it to be great! Being a born & bred Australian only watching games online, it was awesome to finally see the stadium for real. I'm not sure whether I was just super lucky, but we went into the locker rooms, walked through to the bench & sat on the bench next to the ice. Also saw some of the corporate suites, the broadcasters studio in the rafters & walked the inner concourse from where the players arrive & get to the locker rooms. The tour also took in the podium where coach V does his press conferences & the players gym. There's also an added bonus of a discount voucher for the Canucks store (20%?) which I used to buy a Luongo jersey (among other things). Far and away the best $12 I spent on a month long tour of Canada & the US. Happy to answer any other questions if you have any...

If you can't see the dressing room the only other thing would be the broadcast booth that would interest me.
