CBE Perfect Spot for SUMMER GROUPS!



The College Basketball Experience (The CBE) and National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame is the perfect destination for field trips and summer groups of all ages. The only facility of its kind in the nation, The CBE is two floors and 41,500 square feet of interactive basketball activity and collegiate basketball history. From playing on the full size "Center Court" to the miniature sized "Kids Court", six dunk courts, multiple shooting activities and much, much more, your group will be fully immersed in the basketball experience. In addition to The CBE, your paid admission gives you full access to the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame where you can learn about the great college players, coaches and contributors to the game.

The CBE is a self-guided experience. Fans are free to enjoy all of the activities without any additional cost. The typical time frame for most groups is 90 minutes to 2 hours or more. CBE staff will help coordinate time spent on each floor so your group enjoys the full facility. Outside food is not allowed in The CBE. Beverages brought into The CBE are limited to sports water bottles. There are vending machines on both floors. Same day re-admission is allowed for groups leaving the facility for lunch and then returning.

Groups of twenty-five or more can enjoy a discount of three dollars per admission. Paid admission is required for everyone in your group, including parents, staff and chaperones. Payment can be made in advance or at the door upon your arrival. In the case of the advanced payments, complimentary tickets will be issued for unused admissions. If your school or organization is planning multiple group visits, you may take advantage of a special $5 rate with a minimum purchase of 500 tickets. The $5 rate requires advanced payment. Group visits can be scheduled through the online Group Reservation Form or by calling Cassie Eisenmann at 816-949-7516. A few days’ notice is needed for scheduling. For groups over 100, please schedule at least one week in advance to ensure appropriate staffing.
