    Thinking of bringing the family to the event in the 3Arena in April. Never been to a WWE event before.

    Any advice re: seating?

    If you've got kids, especially small kids, I'd personally advise tiered seating. You can see the ring from pretty much anywhere in the arena, but the front rows can be an absolute warzone (kids running round, elbowing you to get a better view, spilling stuff all over the place), and after about 4 rows on the floor, it can be hard for adults to see, let alone kids.

    Tiered seating is calmer and is actually a far better experience imo.

    The cheaper price bracket is the best option to go with I think. I went ringside once in recent years but couldn't see the point again after that. I always go for the cheapest ones and I can see everything that's happening in the ring and there's just a better atmosphere as TSC said. There's a ticket option for families as well I think, which seems a pretty good deal.

    Yeah tiered seating seems like the way to go for better viewing experience. I was tempted to buy ringside seats for April show this year, but I decided not to do it after hearing horror stories on here.

    I wouldn't even call them horror stories. It just doesn't seem right to pay that much more money for less of a view than you'd have if you had bought the tickets that are 2 grades down.

    Ya, highly recommend cheaper seats in the stands. You'd be going just to see the wrestlers live - the match quality is generally diabolical! So the fun you have will be what you make of it. Since it's your first time it'll be awesome!

    I'll echo what the lads have said. Not really a bad seat in the house. The four times I have went I was in the first tiered seating and the view was fantastic. A lot of kids around me who could see perfectly.

    If you have kids I'd give yourself the day to enjoy it. Try get to the signing in Symths or wherever it is. I had two spare meet tickets and gave them to some guy from Galway and his kid. He texted me later in the day to say that it blew the kids mind to see a superstar up close and the free passes I gave him were priceless.

    For the show- make it a panto. Boo the heels loudly cheer the good guys heartily. It makes the show infinity more fun if you let yourself go.
