Seat view from section 410 at the Toyota Center, home of the Houston Rockets

Sat here for the Rockets v. Grizzlies game around Christmas time late last season. It turned out to be not much of a game since the Rockets won by almost 30 points but every Rocket game is fun initially. We were three or four rows up from the bottom, great seats. Section 410 sits almost on the center court line on the opposite side of the arena where the team and their benches are. Every seat has it's own drink holder and for weeknight games, you can usually get decently priced tickets in this section without breaking the bank.

Watching Rockets games from the upper deck is a completely different experience now that they've added a big screen that rivals the one the Dallas Cowboys have in AT&T Stadium. They say everything is bigger in Texas. The only problem is the Houston taxpayers had to foot the bill for it, in an arena that only gets used by the Rockets a little more than 40 nights a season.

The simplest and quickest way to get to these seats would be to enter through the La Branch street entrance and take a right. You'll see the escalators going to the upper level, just outside of section 110. These are the only escalators that I know of that access the upper level. If you've never been to the Toyota Center, it isn't hard to navigate and if I'm not mistaken, it's one of the smallest arenas in the NBA. It's a clean and beautiful place to watch a basketball game.

To give you an idea what the view of the court is like from section 410, here is a Youtube video shot from there during a Rockets/Oklahoma City Thunder game at the Toyota Center.

The best view of the court that money could buy in my opinion. I've been coming to the Toyota Center for Rockets games since the place opened in 2003 so I've sat all over. I would consider buying season tickets if I had more time but 41 games is too big of a commitment.
410 is dead center court which is the most ideal seat on the second level for obvious reasons. If you like to see how the plays originate, this is where you'll want to be. Especially fun to watch high flying teams like the Heat and Lakers from up top when they're in town.

There are no stairs to climb to go to these seats, only escalators. Once you find your section, finding your seat is simple and there are less than 15 rows for sure so it's actually pretty hard to choose a bad seat. Among the upper level seats, these will be the most sought after and expensive and for good reason.
