Recently I was at Amalie Arena for the 2015 Women's Final Four basketball games and again for a playoff game between the Tampa Bay Lightning and Detroit Red Wings hockey teams. The atmosphere is electrifying and exhillirating! The sound is awesome; the jumbotron in the center of the arena is amazing. However, I was not thrilled to be seated in... More

It's a great modern arena I have been to several times. I last saw Lightning hockey. The ushers and ticket people were kind and helpful. We had one special needs person and were seated in an area requiring lots of steps. At the intermission, we were escorted to a closer spot with no steps and a better view too! They... More

Amalie Arena is the best venue in Tampa for indoor sports, concerts and musical performances. It's the home of the Tampabay Lightning as they share the road to the Stanley Cup!

Amalie arena is a wonderful place to see a hockey game. The event staff is extremely knowledgeable, polite and eager to help in any way possible. All seats are great for viewing, even if you are in the last row of the upper deck. Food choices are extremely plentiful with choices from pizza, to Philly cheesesteaks to BBQ.

My husband and I came down to Tampa to see our Nashville Predators take on our super secret Eastern Conference favorite, the Tampa Bay Lightning back in March and were blown away with how awesome Amalie Arena is! Not to mention, the Lightning fans were so, so nice and very welcoming! So was the staff! The Tesla coils were so... More

Our Tampa Bay Lightning are in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, and we were so fortunate to get some tickets for a last minute fun night out. We sat way up high (right under where the media sits), and I was concerned it was going to be a not so great seat since we got them at the last minute. I... More

...and this place is not suited for concerts. Bad acoustics and too large to enjoy individual entertainers unless you are very close to the stage. It's a hockey arena for a reason I guess. This will be my one and only concert here.
