    SAP Center, actually, not just Sharks games.

    Have an autistic child and the sound is too loud, they have headphones. lights too bright? They've got sunglasses.

    Nice to help accommodate all fans.

    (As someone who had issues climbing to my STH nose bleed seats after pneumonia, I was reseated in lower bowl with much fewer stairs to climb. )

    I know a few other arenas do this - PNC Arena, for instance, partnered with KultureCity to offer sensory inclusive kits, weighted lap pads, and photosensitivity glasses as well as furnishing a designated quiet room. Good for the Sharks! Having a few friends on the spectrum, it's good to know that if they want or desire to go out to a game they have options to accommodate their needs!
