We come from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada and I must admit that the parking here was close by and even after the game, we did not have the 'congested' streets we have in Ottawa so that was great! Because this is Florida, they had bars on the outside of the Forum where you could order beer, wine and special drinks (I believe I had the Thundertini). Inside, the Forum as a lot of seating areas with leather couches which is nice. Inside the Forum, the seating was the same as in our own home arena but the atmosphere was much nicer! Everyone had their Bolts Jerseys on, fans were cheering big time. Excellent spot for the organ player where everyone could see and hear him as well as cheerleaders (which my husband enjoyed looking at!). Overall we really enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone who is in Tampa and enjoys watching hockey.
