Accessibility & Special Accommodations
The Guest Services department at KeyArena strives to provide excellent service to all our guests, including those guests with disabilities and special needs. KeyArena recognizes the needs of persons with disabilities and has met or exceeded the requirements of compliance with the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) and Washington accessibility mandates. KeyArena provides a full range of accommodations for guests with disabilities to ensure their safety, comfort and enjoyment of our events and facilities. The following section highlights our services.
KeyArena Admissions staff provide complimentary wheelchair escorts to guests with special needs when requested. Escorts are available at any entry point. Please be aware that our staff will not remain with you during the event, nor will they allow you to remain in the wheelchair for the duration of the event.
Accessible/disabled seating is available on all levels of the arena. Accessible seating and parking are available through Ticketmaster and the KeyArena Box Office. When ordering accessible tickets, it is important to indicate that you require accessible seating so we can properly seat you.
There are three options for purchasing Accessible seating:
1) Visit Ticketmaster online, select the event, and click on the "Request Accessible Tickets" icon.
2) Call Ticketmaster at 800-745-3000 and request accessible tickets.
3) Visit a Ticketmaster retail outlet and request accessible tickets.
KeyArena Box Office also sells accessible seating. Please visit the Box Office page for hours and more information. For questions/concerns regarding accessible seating, please contact Seattle Center Customer Service at (206) 684-7200.
Designated parking is available for guests with disabilities in all Seattle Center parking garages. These spaces, including van-accessible spaces, are designated for vehicles displaying a current state-issued disability placard or license plate. Disabled spaces are filled on a first-come, first-served basis so please plan accordingly. Please refer to the Parking section of this website for maps, directions and more information.

Service animals are welcome in KeyArena and will rest in the seating area of the individual with a disability, rather than in the aisle. We suggest that the individual have proof of certification or a license for the service animal.
Emergency Evacuation Procedures
KeyArena personnel have been properly trained in emergency evacuation procedures to ensure the safe evacuation of all patrons, including those guests with disabilities, in the case of an emergency. Please pay careful attention to personnel instructions during an evacuation.
