“Dwayne Wade and 'Em”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Excellent service. If you are in comfortable shoes you can walk to/from the Marriott (we did, trying to flag a cab and navigate within the traffic once the game ended was murder). Liked the arena. Had a great time! Disliked that there were no gummy bears.

“Great Venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

Basketball games are incredibly fun here. Parking can be troublesome. Stop by bayside first for dinner and drinks.

“Heat v Milwaukee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

Ordered tickets online in advance to collect at Will Call. Great service there and no problem collecting.
This was our fist basketball game in America and what a thrill. They even went into overtime for us giving us longer, well maybe not intentionally!

The security getting in was sleek and very quick, the seats were fabulous and the whole event was amazing.

The only thing I didn't like was the cost of the food inside very very expensive so we shared a coke.

As for parking, we parked at Brickell and got the metro rail in, very easy and much much cheaper.

“Best venue to a basketball game”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

The venue is great. Easy to park. Good food, good stores.
I went to several venues to see nba games and I´m sure that AA Arena is top3 in US.

“Over Priced”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

I love sports and hate the fact they have turned seeing the Heat play into an expensive entertainment venue for the rich. Besides the Heat are not playing up to what they are being paid they should be paid on performance.
