“Pretty Area but park close if you can!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013 via mobile

Nice Arena but parking was 20 dollars and getting to the arena was not the best. Two people stopped me for money and tickets, so park close to the arena. Pretty area, colors of Miami, you can take great pictures of the city outside the arena.

“Great experience in a very expensive way...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

i'm a heat fan and i must say that i visited miami several times,but this time i wanted to reward myself going to a heat game, and though it was worth it, i believe this can be pricey and expensive. first the parking, i have to park at bayside marketplace which is located right at the front of the arena, but parking was 20$. then the ticket 58$ way up the court, though we had a great view of the court, if you are thirsty a beer is around 9$ a soda i believe it was 4 or 5 $ and a pack of cashews 11$. you might be spending 200-250$ without any notice... this is a must see for any heat fan... and has many choices to eat from hot dogs to a papa johns, for drinks has several choices. my suggest is close your eyes take the hand into your pocket and do it at least only once in your life, the NBA is a great sport show, and if you ask, EL HEAT RULES!

“Great stadium for basketball game”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

My son has always been a Heat fan since his first team was the Heat. While in Miami, we were able to see the 26th victory in their record streak against Charlotte. I have been to a couple of NBA venues and this one is great for both its fan experience as well as accessibility. The free monorail has several convenient nearby stops and despite thousands of fans it was easy to reach our seats in the upper deck. The stadium is well designed to make you feel close even in the upper deck. Yes concessions are expensive as nearly all stadiums but bottomless drinks and popcorn allow us to at least see some value. Also great outdoor area with some of the backdrops of the downtown area.
