We attended our first pro hockey game while visiting Tampa. The team was exciting, the fans were seriously into the action, and the 18,000-seat arena was sold out on a Saturday night. The tribute to a local service member was a reminder of what's important. Waiting until the first period to pick up tickets on Stub Hub, we got four... More

Latest views, pretty easy access - not the easiest, but good. Hard for my mother (75) to get around, but that's not completely unexpected. If someone is not great with crowds, or walking, go early, but then, you probably knew that Other than that, which are not necessarily unique to this venue, this is a great place to spend a... More

The Arena is a first class facility that several years ago got a $40 million facelift. It seats 20,000. There is lots of parking and easy access. There is outdoor entertainment before the games. The arena contains a variety of food vendors. The Vinic organization is terrific. Besides the hockey games, the arena holds many other events.

We love the Tampa Bay Lightning games at this arena. It is a first class facility and the games are very interactive for the sports fans. There are many food vendor choices, including PDQ, Rumfish, Outback, Holy Hog, etc. The Party Deck on the top tier has a beautiful view of the Hillsborough River and Downtown Tampa (perfect place for...

So enjoy catching a game when in town. Great venue for hockey, 20 thousands plus fans. Great outdoor entertainment before game and good concession choices.

New name of Tampa Times Forum is AMALIE ARENA. Located in downtown Tampa this is a great venue. Good parking in easy walking distance for $15.

I took my family to Amalie Arena to see the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus. This was our first trip to the arena. When purchasing our tickets, I pre-purchased our parking pass in the south regional garage for about $10. Upon arrival, the entrance to the garage was easy to find. They had a dedicated entrance for those... More

Went to see the Toronto Maple Leafs. Very nice arena. An excellent selection of food and drinks. Easy to find. Parking is reasonable. Paid $10.00 to park within walking distance. Friendly staff for information or directions. Like most arenas there is grid lock after the game to get out. Took about half an hour but game was a sell out.

My wife and I were invited by my father in law here for the Fleetwood Mac concert. We had seats on the floor about row 35. If you`re short trust me don`t get the floor. Try the fist row off to the sides so you can see. It`s a great venue other than that little bit it`s small enough to... More
