Hilton Coliseum is an indoor multi-purpose athletic arena on the campus of Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa. The Hilton Coliseum holds just over 14,000 spectators and is the home of the Iowa State Cyclones men and women’s basketball teams, along with ISU’s wrestling, volleyball, and gymnastics programs. At an ISU basketball game, visitors will be struck by their plush surroundings during such a raucous event. The arena has the look and comfort of a concert hall, but the fans seem to ignore this as they try to take the roof off the building in support of the Cyclones.
The James H. Hilton Coliseum was opened in 1971. The arena has hosted basketball, wrestling events, gymnastics championships, and volleyball games, as well as conventions, student commencements, and concerts. Home of “Hilton Magic” - a phenomenon that has allowed the Cyclones to upset many teams over the years at Hilton Coliseum - has become a very real issue for visiting teams.
Hilton Coliseum is truly a premier event center, providing special acoustic treatments, easy access through large entryways, and state of the art video and sound capabilities. Watch an even at the Coliseum and witness “Hilton Magic” for yourself. Buy Hilton Coliseum tickets today and don’t miss an event at the Hilton Coliseum!
