“Great venue and parking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

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.

“Hockey in the warm weather?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Cooooool. I am from Boston. It was like a dream to visit this stadium with carpeting on the hallways and walking to the game in short sleeves from a nearby pub. Love it!!!! Boston Garden: no carpeting on the stairs or halls!! I felt like I was in another world. Food, facilities, seats. Had a great time.
Very impressed.

Saw several concerns and games in this venue. Great parking in the garage and well designed forum -both sound and seating-wise. Great location for a concert!

“Great game”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

I bought tickets to the game as a surprise for my husband, and it ended up being a surprise to both of us. We were the second seat behind the bench for Tampa so we got to see all of the players close up and right on the ice. The game was great and we had a great time because it was full that night.
