Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum Reviews

Rated 4.3 out of 5 Star Rating

5 Star Rating Very nice place to go for sports. We've been watching the Riptide lacrosse game tonight and had a great time. They even have an outdoor smoking section, unlike most other public places nowadays. The food was good as well. Very nice atmosphere and a happy crowd.

4 Star Rating Had a great time visiting for the hot wheels monster truck show with my 5 year old son and my father in law. The venue was clean, safe, and convenient. It was pretty outrageous that they charged $35 for parking though. If you don’t want to pay, what will you do? Just walk half a mile?

5 Star Rating Working at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum for a graduation event with over 15,000 people was an incredible experience. The venue itself is spacious and well-equipped to handle such a large gathering. The staff were incredibly helpful and accommodating, making the entire process seamless and enjoyable. From a photographer's perspective, the lighting and acoustics were excellent, allowing me to capture stunning images and videos of the event. The layout of the coliseum provided great vantage points, ensuring that I could capture every important moment of the graduation ceremony. The management and support staff at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum were professional and attentive, making sure that all the attendees and vendors had everything they needed. The overall atmosphere of the coliseum added to the grandeur of the event, making it a memorable experience for everyone involved. I would highly recommend the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum as a venue for large-scale events. Its facilities, staff, and overall ambience make it an ideal location for capturing special moments and creating lasting memories!

5 Star Rating The Brick Feast was a nice family event, my 5 years old son had a great time building Legos, specially in the car race station where all the kids were able to build their own car and see it race with the other cars. I wish the Lego sculpture were displayed with maybe a background , but I have to say they were amazing!!!
