Disabled Seating

As you enjoy a wide variety of entertainment events at the Pikes Peak Center, our goal is to provide you with the kind of assistance and service excellence that will make your visit a positive experience. Guests with disabilities who require disabled seating may purchase tickets through the same methods, at same hours, and same times of sales as guests requiring non-disabled seating. Please note that while the Pikes Peak Center has well in excess of required accessible seating (and parking) locations under applicable law, accessible seating (and parking) is nonetheless limited and a request for accessible seating does not guarantee availability. Tickets are sold on a first-come first-served basis. The following will give you helpful information to make your visit with us memorable and enjoyable:

The Pikes Peak Center reserves the right to address fraudulent purchases for accessible seating to the extent provided by law including, with respect to single event ticket purchases, asking the purchaser if they, or someone for whom they are purchasing, has a mobility disability that requires the use of a wheelchair space.
