This is a terrific venue for concerts, NHL games, AFL games, etc. Big enough, but not overwhelming. Acoustics pretty good, but not great. Located convenient at south end of downtown and close to Channelside.

Saw 2 Lightning games here. Against the New York Rangers and Montreal Canadiens. The atmosphere is 'electric'! Such a huge arena with very helpful staff members. Great venue!

Inside, the stadium is easy to navigate and clean with a good choice... More

We decided to go to the ticket office, and asked if we can trade for other tickets that are together. The ticket person said, "No guarantee, but I will try... More

We love this Arena. My wife is a big fan of the Lightning. I follow the Canucks, so she left a lot happier than I did ! It amazes me how cheap you can get tickets here and for the Panthers in Sunrise. If you are ever in this area during Hockey season, do yourself a favour and catch a... More

We attended Cirque de Soleil Varkai on Aug 7th and we were wowed by the show and the venue. Parking was easy, all the seats were great and they had several bars and eateries inside ranging from causal dining to hot dog stands.

very nice indoor arena. The Chase club lounge was very nice. Enjoyed the buffet and all you can drink beverages. Arena is close to the water. Everywhere near the arena charges for parking.

Hard to get a bad seat. Plenty of nice people to assist you in finding your way. Plenty of vendors with a variety of food/drink. The bathrooms were clean, always a plus.
