I went to watch the Toronto Maple Leafs play the Lightning. The arena parking is immediately adjacent to the building and everyone gets a parking spot. You don't have to park blocks away and walk for miles. The area itself is sparkling clean with comfy seating areas. The food was very good and the staff was wonderful, very friendly. The fans were very respectful. No drunken louts shouting obscenities. Everyone seemed to be having a good time.

I have attended over half a dozen Lightning games in the last three years. We usually go on my birthday or other special occasion because the tickets, food, beverages, and souvenirs are expensive. We have had seats all over the arena and have not had a bad seat yet. The venue is easy to navigate, and there are helpful employees everywhere if you get turned around. The team owner dumped a bunch of money into updating the facility recently, and it shows. There is a modern jumbo-tron, and Tesla coils shoot lightning bolts whenever the Lightning scores. SUPER cool. My father-in-law bought his employees tickets to the Premier Club and Party Area for the last game of the 2012-2013 season and invited us to attend as well. A reserved seat, dinner, dessert, beer, wine, and a small selection of liquor are all included in the ticket price, $125 a ticket. The food is slightly upscale finger food, not bad, not amazing, better than average bar food, and there is quite a variety. I know we will be back!

We were in Tampa for a cruise, and managed to snare 2 tickets to the Tampa Lightning vs Pittsburgh Penguins hockey game. The arena was a 2 block walk from our hotel, and the arena provided live musical entertainment outside the venue. Once inside we were wowed by the variety of food/drink options. Our seats were club level, mid ice, and we had great sight lines. We walked the arena, and I don't think there is a bad sight line, even at the top tier. The place was very clean and walkways were spacious. Wife & I have been to many sporting venues over the years, and we both commented on the cleanliness of the bathrooms. Couldn't ask for a better place to watch a hockey game. .

Amazing venue. Visited to see Rihanna and the arena is very good with different food options evrywhere. If parked close enough easy to avoid traffic.
