“Miami Heat in November”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2012

Attended the Miami Heat vs Denver Nuggets game at this gorgeous arena. There are no bad seats in this arena and there is lots of food, snacks and your favorite beverages to be found. Security in this arena is excellent and very friendly and they keep the crowds in check which was good for a first-timer as I did not know what to expect with a sold-out crowd. There is a nice gift shop with Heat logo apparel and prices are very reasonable. This is architecturally one of the most stunning arenas I have ever been in or seen. There is a lot of fan interaction at the game and I noticed a lot of families attending. It is a fun atmosphere and a once in a lifetime thrill to witness LeBron James get his Olympic Banner hung in the area. This is accessible by car or taxi and lots of parking is available. Lot of nice restaurants surround the block if you want an early dinner before the game. Tickets were reasonable for the game.

“You must experience a Miami Heat game”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012

Purchased tickets to a pre-season game of Heat against Hornets and on the afternoon I headed to Bayside, where I parked my car and lesse than 5 minutes walking to AAArena. The place is amazing, people scream loud and make the place a hell to every visiting team. If you´re a sports lover don´t hesitate to go!

“Horrible getaway!!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

Went during Disney on ice! Horrible getaway when you sit with in the fist set of rows. Yes they are of course the best sits. When the shows is over the headache begins! You have to fight your way up to the top!! And the traffic to get out is just another story. I have also sat up far by the ceiling rows by the birds and there is a horrible experience where u barely hear the show let alone see it. It could have been defenetly been designed better! With easy exits for all sitting sections.

“Go see an event here.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

Solid sports stadium. We saw Radiohead live here, though I imagine an "El Heat" game would probably be great as well. As stadiums go, it's nice, and in a solid location to go out after if it so tickles your fancy.
