These sensory bags contain a variety of items to help guests manage sensory overload, including comfortable noise-cancelling headphones, fidget toys, a visual feeling thermometer, lap-pads, and a KultureCity VIP lanyard to help staff easily identify these guests. These items are designed to reduce overstimulation and noise overloads and aim to create a more enjoyable fan experience for all. Sensory bags can be picked up at our Guest Services centers, located outside of Sections 112 and 212
  • Barclays Center has a designated sensory room that serves as a dedicated space in the arena for those who may need a quieter and more secure environment.

Fans interested in using the space may check-in with our Guest Services centers, located outside of Sections 112 and 212.

Service animals are welcome at Barclays Center. In keeping with ADA regulations, disabled guests may use either a dog or miniature horse that is individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the guest. The work or tasks performed by the service animal must be directly related to the guest's disability. As such, animals that solely provide emotional support or companionship to a guest will not be permitted inside Barclays Center. Please contact our Guest Services Department if any accommodations are required, by emailing guestservices@barclayscenter.com.
