As you plan your trip to the Mullins Center, please be aware of the security measures in place to ensure a safe and enjoyable atmosphere for everyone.

Guests may be required to walk through metal detectors when entering the venue. To expedite the process, we ask that guests remove cell phones and keys from their pockets and encourage patrons to avoid bringing bags to the facility. Purses, diaper bags, and other small personal bags are allowed but will be inspected at all entrances. No storage or check-in area will be provided for items not permitted inside the arena and items confiscated at the entrance will not be returned.
