What Should You Do If Your Bag Is Too Big to Enter the Cleveland Cavs Arena?

If your bag is too big to enter the arena, you have three options on what to do next. First, you can bring your bag (or prohibited items) back into your car and head back in line to get into the arena.


Second, if you take public transportation to the arena and don’t have a car to put your belongings in, you can see if a local bar or restaurant will hold onto your stuff. Most nearby hotels and bars hold onto bags for a small fee if space is available. Plenty of hotels and bars are within walking distance of the arena, so you will have many options to bring your bag to.


Third, if the item you can’t bring into the arena is outside food or drinks, you can finish them before heading there. If you cannot finish the outside food or beverages, you can throw them out in the trash can at the gate entry before making your way into the arena.
