If you are in town and want to catch a hockey game, then this is the place for you. You almost can't get a bad seat. You don't have to worry about obnoxious fans (like from Philly or Boston) because Tampa fans cheer for their team, not beat up the visiting fans. Enjoy a cold beer and cold ice.

We have attended hockey games and the Jeff Dunham show here. It is a very clean forum atmosphere. Lots of food vendors and restrooms scattered throughout. The seats are a bit close between rows, but are comfortable. Nice layout.

From the Tesla Coils, to power organ, to the larger than life big screen, you will love it. If you are in town, see for your self. The... More

Saw a Lightning hockey game and loved the venue. Food is moderately priced for a stadium but be prepared to spend some coin on beer/alcohol!

We watched Tampa play Montreal Ice Hockey and had an amazing night. Really well worth a visit. Everyone so very helpful and friendly and the whole experience was truly uplifting. So many food options - we had to try all of them ! I wish we had something like this in the UK.
