Mainly used for CHL hockey, home to the Wichita Wind (CHL) 1980-1983 and the Wichita Thunder (CHL) 1993-2010. Due to its remote location, the Coliseum became obsolete. Wichita built the Intrust Bank Arena in downtown, which opened in 2010.

The blue Toyota pickup truck in the middle is mine :). I had just come from Arlington Texas on my way back home to so. Cal via Denver. The back is loaded with seats, concession signs, programs and media guides from the old Arlington stadium, which was being demolished.
Another view of the front of the stadium and my full truck!

Sean Mulligan takes a cut. Mulligan would play 2 games for the Padres in 1996. He was famously traded for $50,000.00 and a treadmill. Rumors are he had a bad attitude.
