There are ONLY a limited number of tickets now available for the watch party. You can get them at the Quicken Loans Arena Box Office. There is a 4 ticket limit per person. (Free watch party tickets will be available at the same locations as each playoff round unfolds.) Doors will open one hour prior to tipoff, at 7:30 p.m. for both of the games.
At the Watch Parties, fans will be treated to all kinds of fun, including face painting, games and inflatables. There will also be t-shirt tosses, performances by the Cavalier Girls and the Scream Team and of course, Cavs’ mascots Sir CC and Moondog will be on hand to keep things exciting.

How are you getting to The Q during the playoffs? Remember that RTA will operate Red Line trains every 15 minutes before and after each home playoff game to accommodate Cavs fans. (Blue and Green Line trains will operate according to the regular schedule.) All rapid lines will serve Downtown visitors for at least 90 minutes after the game ends. You can park free at many of RTA’s rapid stations, buy a $5, all-day pass and take the train to Tower City Station. From there it’s an easy walk to The Q through the enclosed walkway near Tower City food court.
