AA Arena - Dallas

AA Arena

American Airlines Arena Dallas Mavericks Review

My daughter pointed out the AA arena as we drove past. I'm not sure if they've been there to a Dallas Mavericks game or not. I tend to think not, because my SIL is more into the Cowboys and participatory sports. In addition to the Mavericks (basketball) the Stars (hockey) and Desparados (arena football) play here. I was more interested in the arena because of the American Airlines connection.

The exterior of American Airlines Center is made of brick, limestone and granite and inside it is 840,000 square feet.

There are four entryways into the event level:
The Zamboni entrance (North)
the Home Team entrance (East)
the Visiting Team entrance (West)
and the Elephant entrance (South)

Equipment: All guests visiting the American Airlines Center must pass through metal detectors when entering the facility. Large bags and backpacks are not allowed and all other bags will be inspected. Items such as firearms, knives and other weapons are prohibited.

Patrons should avoid bringing prohibited items and any unnecessary items that may activate the metal detectors. Upon entry into the facility remove all items from your pockets including cell phones, pagers, and car keys. Also, have purses and small bags open and ready for inspection. If at anytime you observe and unusual behavior by other guests, please notify your section usher so that we may investigate.

Small signs are allowed but larger signs with sticks or poles are not. Other prohibited items include food products, bottles, aerosol cans, coolers, weapons and laser pointers.

Address: 2500 Victory Ave in Dallas, Texas.

Directions: To blue lots: Dallas Tollway to Wycliff exit- just past the last toll plaza. Right on Wycliff and continue to Harry Hines- turn left on Harry Hines. Continue to N Houston St. Turn right on N Houston St. and the blue lots will be on your right.
