Photos: Proposed new arena's 'Sonic Ring' seats

SEATTLE -- Chris Hansen has released new conceptual photos of what the "Sonic Rings" area would look like in the new proposed arena.

The rings would circle the top of the arena and allow the arena to have expand or lower seating capacity depending on the nature of the event.

In a blog post Friday Hansen said each Ring would have about 800-900 fixed seats and then standing room for another 700-1,500 people per level.

"We have tried to create a unique game-watching experience that combines a fun, social environment with stellar viewing angles not offered in any other arena upper deck," Hansen wrote.

Hansen says there will also be different themes on each ring, varying from a sports bar type environment to family-themed areas for those with little ones.
