We had a great time at the Tampa Bay Storm game. The games are full of action and entertainment. Parking was $15 but is very close. Seems a bit spendy, but still worth it. Food was just okay. We tried pulled pork, a pretzel, and a cone and all were just okay and around $35 for the three items. Again,... More

This is a great venue, well maintained. We have attended graduation and sporting events here. No complaints. They are the home of the Tampa Bay Lightning and host major concerts and events like Cirque Du Soleil's Michael Jackson Immortal Tour.

Too much money for food and drink! Clean bathrooms. Friendly professional staff. I find this Venue very classy in comparison to other venues in the area.

Went to the Times Forum to see Disney on Ice with my little 3yr daughter. She had a blast! Also went few weeks later to see an arena football game. Had a great time also at that event! Enjoy the overall venue. While it's large it doesn't seem too daunting and easy to find your seats.

I'm not a big hockey fan, but this is a great place to watch a game. The food, shopping, and overall aptmosphere is nice and energetic.

We've been going here since it was called the "Ice Palace." It will always be the Ice Palace to me! Great staff and entertainment during the games. The Lightning really goes all out to make their fans welcome. Just one more reason why we love 'em!!!

We frequent the TBTF all the time. We have season tickets to the Lightning so we go there often. Not to mention for Monster Jam, WWE events, comedy shows, etc. Jeff Vinik has really done a great job updating the forum. The HD screen is the biggest in the NHL... All the seats are redone. Everything looks absolutely amazing. Not... More

We have only seen Lightning games here, but they are always enjoyable. Giant Tesla coils are always a hit even with opposing fans.

As an avid hockey fan, this remains one of the BEST venues to watch a game. The energy and effects in this building make it a favorite and the addition of the party deck over looking the city makes it even better!
