A little hard to find but the Hockey was excellent. Tickets for row 8 from Ice level was $58.00. Beats Vancouver, BC Hockey ticket prices for the ordinary fan on a budget. The Tampa Bay Lightning were wearing their black jerseys and gave out free T-shirts to the whole arena! They played the San Jose Sharks. Was a great evening... More

The Ice Palace is located in downtown Tampa, so before the games you can enjoy two great places Ybor City or Channel side both have lots of restaurants and bars. Both are within walking distance.

We had a great time as always at the forum. However, there are very few gluten free options. Dippin dots were great but very pricey -$7 for a small. The small was maybe 1/4 cup size. I would really like to see more gluten free meal and snack options.

We went to see the November 6th Tampa Bay Lightening game and had upper bowl tickets. What fun we had at the game! The arena is laid out really well. Line ups for concessions are small everywhere. As a Canadian, I'm used to waiting in long lines during intermissions but here there was no worry about gettin back to your... More

Like so many arena's name has changed and is now Amalie arena. I'm a Bruins fan from MA that enjoys the TD Garden. This arena is top notch. Great concourse area outside. A treat to be outdoors enjoying a drink and view of downtown area. Weather makes you feel like you are at a baseball game. Once inside the arena... More

The service is outstanding. Parking is good, even for a downtown location. Not a bad seat in the house.

Watched a Bolts game and was very impressed by the show. They put on a wonderful production. Music, light (lightning) show, graphics and scoreboard were all great. The game was awesome too. The staff was friendly and very attentive

This is by far the best venue I have ever visited. Great parking surrounding the building. Friendly staff outside to help you out or just greet you with a smile. The great majority of the staff seem to enjoy working at the Forum, their attitude is one of kindness and concern. What a nice group of people. The building itself... More
