Stroller Policy

Guests are strongly discouraged from bringing strollers. If you must bring one, please be advised there will be designated stroller parking areas located just before reaching the security checkpoint. You will not be able to bring your stroller past the checkpoint or into the seating area of the arena.

Mobile Tickets

Security will scan your ticket directly from your phone. We highly encourage you to add your ticket to your digital wallet for quicker access and to avoid weak Wi-Fi or cellular connection. If attending with others, you can transfer each person their ticket in advance to ensure swift entry.

Note: Your barcode includes technology to protect it. You will not be able to use a screenshot or print out. Barcodes do time out. It is recommended you open your tickets upon approaching security.

Pumping & Nursing

MVP Arena is proud to offer a Mamava lactation pod to provide a private, comfortable space for breastfeeding parents to pump or nurse. Brought to you by Albany County and MVP Health Care, the Mamava lactation pod is located on the atrium landing just outside the doors near sections 101/130. Need to step out to use the pod? Please let Security at that door know that you will be using the pod so you can return inside easily. Having trouble finding it? Please ask any of our security or guest services members for directions.

For easy access, download the free Mamava app for Android or iPhone and open the pod with a touch of a button. Click here to be directed to the app

Soft sided cooler bags and pumping equipment are allowed. We do not have refrigeration or storage options.

How long is the show?

You and your family won't want the fun to end, but even though the entire experience is about 120 minutes, the memories will last forever...and ever! You may be on the edge of your seat the whole time - except for snack breaks during a 15-20 minute intermission.


We suggest you dress comfortably. Proper attire, including shoes and shirts, must be worn at all times. This event is a casual, family-oriented experience. Clothing which, by nature, exposes excessive portions of the body that may be viewed as inappropriate for a family environment will not be permitted. In that spirit, you are asked to use discretion and common sense.

Costumes, costume masks and costume makeup may not be worn by guests 14 years of age or older.
