This is a great arena. But you better get the early for parking is expensive and hard to come by. The city of Tampa does not care to help out with this and would rather ticket and tow you. So be warned.

We recently visited Amalie Arena to see the Ringling Brothers Circus. Great show and venue. We took advantage of the advance purchase of garage parking which simplified the visit greatly and made it very convenient. We have been to the facility at least a half a dozen times with each experience being very positive and enjoyable. We'll certainly go again.

You have never experienced hospitality as you will at Amalie Arena. There are no bad seats in the entire building. Even if you wish to stand the entire time you're there, you'll always have a bird's eye view. All of the employees go the extra mile to ensure your comfort & enjoyability of the event.

The place is great for the UFC Fights ,the downfall is how expensive everything is . We would go to more venues if there was some kind of local or family discount because with a few kids the Tabs are a different story

Great place to see a show----the premium seats food was not so great and plastic plates and utensils are a little tacky for being a high priced ticket experience. Also experienced this with a private party I attended there

An NHL hockey game while in Orlando vacationing with the family at Disney is a nice change of pace. Its a very nice 80 mile drive especially if you pay for the speed pass with your car rental. We parked about a 1/4 mile away from the Amalie Center as it gets very busy and congested the closer you get... More

Was my first experience to watch a hockey game. The arena is amazing. Nice place, very clean and good place to go with all family and friends. They offer for all over arena bathrooms, store with souvenirs and food as burgres, popcorn, coffe, hotdogs and drinks. I thought it's a little expensive, but it's up to you... I recommend to...
