In effort to provide a safe environment for all our patrons, Toyota Center employs the use of “Walk Through” metal detectors. As you approach, please place bags and cameras on the table. Before you enter the walk through metal detectors please remove your keys and any electronic devices from your pockets and hold them over your head as you pass through the machine. Do not remove jewelry, coins, wallets, watches or belts.

For safety reasons, patrons may be refused entry if they are in possession of prohibited items including, but not limited to: alcoholic beverages, illegal drugs, outside food, drinks, fireworks, laser pointers, coolers, knives, weapons of any type, baby seats or carriers, unauthorized noise makers, glitter, confetti, streamers, helium balloons, basketballs, beach balls, parcels or packages, inflatables, personal motorized transporters (SkyWalkers). Water bottles and coffee are permitted.

To increase the convenience of quick access into the Toyota Center, attendees are highly encouraged to utilize the baggage and coat check to store large bags and luggage located in the George R. Brown Convention Center on the first floor concourse.

Any attendees who need accessible seating must enter through the ADA Entrance located on the corner of Crawford & Polk Streets.
