Cirque Du Soeil was amazing beyond words, but the arena was horrible! Best price seating (front row) were folding chairs, which were awfully uncomfortable. The food--- should not be even called food. When can pizza, or nachos, or even ice-cream be terrible---at the Germaine. The venue did not change/adjust one bit to accommodate for the type of show. The seating... More

We have been to a few shows at Germain including Cirque, comedians, Disney On Ice shows, as well as hockey games. Recently we took our three year old to see OVO by Cirque du Soleil and it was awesome. Our seats were in the first row of the regular seating (not on the floor) and these offered a perfect unobstructed... More

Our first experience at the Germain Arena was the Cirque du Soleil. It was the optimal size for a show like this. Most every seat has a good view, the seats are fairly comfortable and the sound is better than most places that are built like a barn. Parking was expensive to get up close but worth it if you...

We saw, again, the Cirque Du Soeil performers and some of the acts were hard to describe. The balance and agelity required was incredible. ASome of the made my knee hurt to watch. Each act seemed better then the last. The easiest one was impossible looking. Well worth the trip. When they are in your ares, go and enjoy.

Saw the show OvO from Cirque de Soleil. Great show! $15 parking. The venue is small enough that you will have a great view no matter where you sit. The food, from the popcorn to the cheeseburgers where as expected, not good. Not much of a hassle leaving venue, traffic flowed pretty well. Good place to catch a show.

No matter what event or concert I go to at Germain, I have a great time. It is a small enough venue so that you always have a good view.

I have seen several hockey games here and thouroughly enjoyed myself by getting great tickets the day of the game and good placement. The food is to be expected; a slightly above average grease fest. People are nice. Go and enjoy

Also if your not into hockey they have public skating in their recreational arenas, they also offer learn to skate programs and a figure skating club and also hockey teams for beginners. They once in awhile... More

My wife and I have seen many concerts here. Very intimate place to see major acts. The Everblades hockey team is fun and a cheap night of fun.
