Beyond the (ingenious) $1 beer nights, the Cincinnati Cyclones have always done a great job of drawing in fans by mixing the on-ice hockey action with various themed promotions that make the games fun for the entire family. This year already, the ’Clones have hosted games themed around things like Batman, Star Wars, Disney princesses and the WWE.
For the team’s second homestand of 2020, young (and young at heart) fans can meet some of their favorite superheroes during Marvel Weekend. For those not in the know, the Marvel comics universe includes the likes of Captain America, Iron Man, Spider-Man and Black Panther, though it’s unclear which heroes will be on hand for the Friday and Saturday night games.
The Cyclones play the Fort Wayne Komets on Jan. 17 and the Rapid City Rush on Jan. 18. Special ticket packages include Cyclones/Marvel posters and the players will be sporting special jerseys during the game that will be auctioned off.
7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Jan. 17 and 18. $18-$30. Heritage Bank Center, 100 Broadway St., Downtown, cycloneshockey.com.
