It’s a bird… it’s a plane… no, it’s “Superhero Night” with the Peoria Rivermen!


This Friday, the Rivermen welcome Spiderman, Batman, Robin, Flash and Captain America to Carver Arena for a 7:15 p.m. puck drop against Louisiana. Plus, fans can now take advantage of a new ticket special for Friday’s game only courtesy of the Wireless Store and U.S. Cellular.


Beginning Monday (Feb. 24), fans can purchase any lower bowl seat for just $10 and any upper bowl seat for $5. However, the deal must be purchased through the Rivermen office at 309-676-1040 before Friday at 5 p.m. The special offer is also limited to just 100 lower bowl seats and 300 upper bowl seats.


In addition, all fans that purchase tickets before this Friday at 10 a.m. will be entered in a drawing for the chance to drop the ceremonial first puck of the game with each of the five superheroes.


Along with the ticket special, adults and kids alike are invited to dress up as their favorite character and participate in our superhero costume contest.  A group of finalists will be selected to come onto the ice during the second intermission, where one lucky fan will win the grand prize for best costume.


"We couldn't be more happy to add these superheroes to our stellar promotional lineup," Rivermen co-owner Bart Rogers said. "It's all part of our continued effort to grow the entertainment value and provide central Illinois with a great hockey experience that gives the most bang for its buck. Plus, I'm excited to see what other superheroes you fans bring into the building that night!"


For tickets or more information, please visit the Rivermen office located next to the box office inside the Peoria Civic Center, or call 309-676-1040. The office is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
