Chesapeake Energy ArenaOklahoma City Thunder

100 W. Reno Avenue, Oklahoma City, OK, 73102
    Chesapeake Energy Arena is home to NBA's Oklahoma City Thunder. It was previously known as Oklahoma City Arena and opened in 2002 with construction costing just under $90 million. Renovations of just over $121 million took place in 2008 and added new restaurants, additional suites, more concessions, a Kid's Zone, a new Daktronics video and scoring system as well as upgrading the floor surface. The stadium has seating for 18,203. For the 2005 and 2006 NBA seasons the New Orleans Hornets played at Chesapeake Energy Arena due to the damage from Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans. The stadium has three seating levels with the ability to add a fourth one when concerts are taking place. The lower level features wide, retractable leather seating.

    • I think the Chesapeake Energy Arena is solid enough to deserve a 5 trophy rating! Such a unique experience for professional basketball. Close your eyes and you'd think you're at college arena! It's tradition for the Thunder crowd to stay on their feet until the home team scores a basket. Guess what? Opening tip won by OKC. Russell Westbrook jumper from the corner....good! Time to sit.... The Thunder gear shop was crazy busy! It can get a little crowded, but the checkout process goes really fast. Had to get a Thunder t-shirt to take home for my daughter. The food/drink selection is also very great with all sorts of options! Even at half time the lines aren't bad at all. Of course its going to be pricey but that is typical of any sports arena. The only drawback of "The Peake" I can think of is the horrible cell phone certain I get in there. I usually can't even send text messages while in there. But I kind of like it, less distractions = more focus on the game! Go Thunder!! ------ Betty from Norman, Oklahoma
