I have been to Araneta Coliseum several times on different occasion. Tagged as "The Big Dome, " it hosts other different events aside sports like Disney on Ice, beauty pageants, shows, graduation, concerts, and many more. It has a capacity of 25, 000 seats from front to center and up to the end-stage.
The first time I went here was to watch a basketball match of Team Barangay Ginebra. We were not able to go early so we end up sitting at the end-stage. Ugh! But just the same we had fun watching the match. The family was happy because the team won in that match and that we enjoyed the facilities of the place from food, to our seats and the comfort rooms. My recent visit here was just last December when the family watched the annual "Disney on Ice" show. We got free tickets from my son's baptismal godmother. The place was really jam-packed with people mostly kids and as the show starts the center of the stadium was really amazing.
The Big Dome is situated in Cubao which is very accessible to the public. It is also being surrounded with malls, eateries, market and parking areas. My concern only is the location (Cubao) wherein law enforces should ensure the safety of the public against petty crimes like robbery.
