Cool area, nice facilities. Staff were polite and helpful. I went to play basketball this evening and it was the first time I’ve ever been to Copper Box. Got a little lost whilst driving due to the construction work going on, so look out for diversion signs! Parking is £2 for every hour or £45 for the day. Located behind the gym. Pay for parking inside, as the machine outside is broken.
Good view from most seats. Seating is hard plastic but has plenty of room in all directions. Not so keen on rule you can't take food or drink in (although theoretically you're allowed an empty bottle). Little choice of food or drink, and soft drink/water bottles handed over with cap removed.
