“Beautiful Arena, great time at the Heat game!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2013 via mobile

I wouldn't typically review a venue for a sporting event, because you typically just expect loud, dirty, packed with people, etc... But the Heat's home court differed from others I've been to. The Arena was a short walk from the metro station which made getting there super easy. It was clean, from the front door to the bathrooms - everything was well kept, and being a germ-nut this was important to me. Security checked everyone out before they entered, but it was quick and efficient and we were at our seats no longer than 5 minutes after we arrived. The big screen in the middle made it so you didn't miss one thing about the game, including the other fans - the fan cam & lots of the events throughout the game focused on the kids - it was nice to see a safe, clean, family friendly environment. Will return on my next trip to Miami :)

“Great location to watch NBA basketball”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2013

Always a pleasant experience to visit the AAA for a Miami Heat game. The seats are comfortable, the arena well staffed with helpful assistants. The food and drinks are always too expensive and not the highest quality, but I guess that is to be expected in this kind of environment - no other complaints.

What a cool experience! It was so much fun and very exciting! Parking is crappy so take a taxi or look to spend a lot to park close.

My first trip to AA arena. Great flow, no stampede like flow, plenty of food options, and spacious outdoor balcony to take in the lights and vibe of Miami in between periods
