T-Mobile Arena becomes sensory inclusive

T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas has become the latest major US venue to cater for guests with sensory sensitivities.

The News3LV website reports that the arena has partnered with non-profit organisation KultureCity to provide guests with sensory bags when visiting the venue.

The bags will be available for fans at Guest Relations kiosks throughout the arena, which primarily serves as the home of NHL ice hockey team the Vegas Golden Knights.

Staff will also be given training to allow them to better accommodate guests with sensory sensitivities, which may be triggered by noisy crowds or flashing lights on game days.

The bags will include noise-cancelling headphones, sunglasses, fidget toys and other devices to provide guests with a more manageable game-day experience.

Jessica Stanley, manager of guest experience at MGM Resorts, which operates the arena, said: “Our company, our division has backed this 100 per cent. We’re rolling this out here at T Mobile and we’re also in the works of getting it rolled out to all of the other venues here, so we’re excited.”

T-Mobile Arena, which also hosts boxing matches, music concerts and other events, joins the likes of Spectrum Center, Bridgestone Arena, Progressive Field, PNC Arena and Quicken Loans Arena in catering for fans with sensory sensitivities.
