“Lightening Bolts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

Even if you are not a hockey fan this is one the best entertainment centers we've ever been to. They have a Tesla coil creating lightening bolts and a great big screen that coordinates with panels all around the arena. Fantastic light show. Lots of fun for the whole family. The food courts are close to seating and they have a large selection to choose from and prices are very reasonable.

“Cheap Hockey Tickets!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

I was born and raise in Montreal Canada and I can say with confidence that Lightning tickets are WAY cheaper the Montreal Canadiens tickets. We ended up paying $125/ticket for Club Seats tickets which gives you great seats with all you can eat and all you can drink (sodas, juices, beer and even alcohol). The Club section is defini9tely the way to go for us as it includes all the food you can eat and we are not just talking here about hot dogs and hamburgers, but actual gourmet food. From oysters to lamb, to fried dumplings, the Chas Club lounge as food for every type of people. We definitely recommend getting those seats your next time up at a Lightning game!

“Great hockey venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2013

Seats in sect 106 were awesome. Saw the winning OT goal & another shorthanded breakaway goal right in front of us. Draft beer is $10.25; 24 oz cans are $13.25.

“Awesome place to watch a hockey game”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2013

It's ironic that I watched my first NHL game in Tampa. I live in Ontario (around and hour away from Ottawa). Anyways, we ended up watching a game between Ottawa and Tampa. It was an awesome experience. The big screen in the middle of the rink made the game even more exciting. I also thought it was neat when the lights looked like lightening on the ceiling. It was a fantastic evening of fun even though my team lost.

“An awesome venue...and an awesome hockey game!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2013

Very cool venue. The place absolutely comes alive during a lightning game.
Not a bad seat in the house. Sound system great, and a huge jumbo-tron to show the highlights.
We had a great time there!
