“Non-stop excitement.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013 via mobile

Watching a basketball game on tv gives you live playing action plus the dead time of commercials. Watching the Miami Heat at the Tripple A gives you full action and excitement all the way through from the time you enter the arena until the games end. Each and every game timeout, quarter, and halftime break has a floor full of entertainment and lively music. It is a very upbeat afternoon or evening. Go, if you can get tickets.

“Knicks VS Heat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Really nice arena, but in the ugly part of downtown, the parking is expensive however the Knciks gave a great game so it was worth it. Not good options for food and the stores are all Miami Heat merchandise.

“Great ball game.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We have been to the American Airlines arena to watch Miami Vs Sacramento. The arena is great, lots of parking nearby. No fuzz to get in or out of the arena. Plenty of choice of things to eat and a great game.

“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!
