    Best/Worst Stadium/Auditorium Seats

    So, in talking about different stadiums today, got me to thinking. Is it just me or are stadium/auditorium seats getting smaller and smaller back toward the standards of old places. Now that I have lost a lot of weight, they don't bother me as much, but boy there is absolutely no knee room anywhere these days.

    Best - Hilton of course. Actually find the seats there to be comfortable and have decent leg room.

    Worst - Original Lyric Theater in Kansas City or Pabst Theatre in Milwaukee

    It's all about the money. Cram as many people into as small of a space as possible.


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    Anyone ever been to the Young Arena in Waterloo? Those seats are bad.

    Truthfully, Wrigley Field's seating isn't that great. For a theater, try the Story City Opera House; caught a movie there once, sat in a steel folding chair the whole time. My butt was pretty sore afterward.

    Memorial Stadium in Lincoln was the most jam-packed place I've ever been. Not sure if that has changed in the last 10 years.

    For as cool a stadium that Fenway is, man it is uncomfortable. I can't wait to go back.

    Notre Dame's stadium has people crammed in very tight. I am skinny and I have to sit a little sideways otherwise my knees are in the persons back in front of me (Only 5'8" as well). After my first experience there, I appreciated Jack Trice so much more!

    I agree with you completely. Great football atmosphere, but I've never been so uncomfortable trying to watch a game. The East side of the stadium is by far the worst I've seen. The stairwells look like your climbing through an old silo. Kansas is almost as bad, but the games I've seen there had so few fans watching you had plenty of room. UT's got the best stadium in the conference, but I haven't been to Stillwater yet to see their new additions.

    Re: Best/Worst Stadium/Auditorium Seats

    Wrigley Field is fun, but that has to be one of the worst. I'm only 6'1 and I have to sit sidways to keep my knees off the people in front of me.

    Wrigley sucks. Kinnick sucks.

    CY Stephens has verrrrrrry comfortable seats. Mizzou Arena was also very comfortable.
