It's a big warehouse, perfect for NBA basketball and nearly 20,000 screaming Utah Jazz fans..
Salt Lake City's 743,000-square-foot flagship arena was built in 1991 by Larry H. Miller to house the Utah Jazz, but has since played host to numerous concert tours, rodeos and motocross events. The 20,000-seat building played host to Olympics figure skating and short track speed-skating competitions in 2002.
Why not avoid the headache of driving and take Trax instead? The trains will be crowded on the way home, but it beats getting stuck in a parking lot. If you're intent on driving, be smart and park a few blocks away--it'll be free and you're already out of the worst of the traffic by the time you get to your car.
Home to 12 events in figure skating and short track speed skating..
Figure skating is such a beautiful and graceful event that it's easy to forget how much strength is required for the smooth athletic movements. The Delta Center will be the center of the action as the likes of Michelle Kwan and Irina Slutskaya compete for the gold in one of the most popular winter spectator events. If it's speed you're looking for, you'll find that here, too. The Salt Lake Ice Center will be host to short-track speed-skating events.
This place (built in 1991) is big--its base measures 743,000 square feet, and its roof weighs 3 million pounds (roughly the same weight as the total mass of people sitting inside when the 20,500 seats are full). In addition to hosting NBA and WNBA games, the Delta Center regularly hosts concerts, rodeos and more.
