Nice arena. Was a guest in a suite and it was awesome. Great view from just about anywhere. Tesla coils were way cool. Saw them a lot as the Lightning won 5 to 0 over the ducks. Parking was better than many other stadiums. Looks like it would be an excellent music venue.

Love Amalie, it is clean, bright, great staff. Even the food is good! Beers are a bit overpriced but it is an area after all. Get the parking pass, it will save you walking and castle.

Best fan experience in the country! Unlimited amenities and not a bad seat in the house. Easy to get to with great pre game gatherings. Go as often as you can!

Whether its a Lightning game a Storm game or a concert this place is always prepared. Great temperature, go food selections good beer, and nice staff. Just be prepared to spend some money cause just like any other Arena, its ten bucks for a beer.

Went to a hockey game here, good food, prices that you would expect, good sight lines, felt very safe and enjoyed it very much, if you are coming to a game try to stay close to the arena as driving here will take a very long time.

I've been to a half dozen or more NHL arenas over the years and this was one of my favourites. Parking is plentiful and close, albeit at $25 but that similar to what I've paid elsewhere. It is right down town Tampa so there are plenty of choices for dinner before the game or drinks after. Getting out of traffic... More

Great arena except the seats were pretty small. Openness was very nice as were the concessions. Saw a great hockey game, 2 penalty shots, overtime and a shootout!!

Thank JOHN M
