“Went for a hockey game, terrific atmosphere and new name!”
Reviewed January 18, 2012

The St. Pete Times Forum is not the "Tampa Bay Time Forum." They have upgraded the seating inside to make it more comfortable. They have also added new things such as a giant pipe organ and lightning machines. It is definitely something to check out.

“Bring LOTS of money...”
Reviewed January 15, 2012

The forum (now the Tampa Bay TImes Forum, as of last week) is a great place to see a hockey game. The cost of food, however, is incredibly high, even when compared to Washington DC or Baltimore vendor prices. Here are some examples: pretzel: $5.50, chicken fingers, fries and a coke: $21.50. Just be prepared. There are a lot of food options throughout the forum-- you may need to walk a bit. We went to see the Lightning play the Canucks (saw an OT period and a shootout--definitely got our money's worth!). If you have the option to buy a parking pass, DO IT! The public parking is a bit confusing, and all garages near the forum require a pass for events.

“Re-vamped Forum”
Reviewed January 13, 2012

It gets crowded for hockey games, but there are a lot of stalls selling food and drink. They sell 24oz cans for $12 and if you don't want to worry about spilling your drink, this is the way to go. Of if you have a lot of money to burn. Try the Yungling.
