Anticipation to see the new state-of-the-art Sprint Center, for the wonderful Celtic Woman concert (3/30), was exciting.
Since this is a brand-new arena, you’d think there would be more than three stalls in the women’s restroom I was waiting for. The line was all the way down the hall, and the 20-minute intermission was not enough time to accommodate the number of women.
Another unpleasant surprise came when the main floor exit was barricaded at the end of the performance. Everyone seated on the floor had to climb at least 30 stairs to get to the second floor to take an escalator back downstairs. It was bad for some folks who were truly having a hard time breathing trying to make the climb. The exit plan was unbelievably insane.
It’s really too bad that this new center is so unwelcoming to Kansas Citians and visitors.
We, too, visited the Sprint Center and were rudely stopped at the door because we were leaving with the collector cups we had purchased (3/29, Letters, “$8 down drain at Brigade”). We showed that they were empty, and the woman at the door continued to be rude, saying she didn’t know they were empty. Our fault, apparently.
But we’re curious about something. When the Sprint Center has the police arrest their guests for leaving with their purchased soft drinks, what city ordinance will be violated, and does McDonald’s Corp. know about this?
