Experienced the rink of dreams game at 1 pm (no water available for spectators!!! Be prepared!) and returned for the pro game that evening. Exciting game seats sec 328row L .... Decent view. Seats are tight with little wiggle room sitting between 2 average size men. Absolutly zero leg room! High in the stands... Easy access to bars and restrooms.... More

Went to the arena for a concert. Parking was very confusing, finally stumbled onto a brown lot, paid $25 to park on gravel and was forced to back into the makeshift parking spot at night. Getting to our seats was a journey, no signs showing patrons how to get to our seats in section 300, had to take the only... More

I've only been to the Amalie twice and it was for concerts each time. The seats on the floor are temporary and are jammed together tightly and offer no leg room. If you are tall or "fluffy" like me, it's like being in the middle seat of a long airplane flight. The spectator seating is a little better because the... More

great show, great accoustics, parking could be marked better as it's really confusing down by the arena.

It almost seemed that they had never put on a special event here before. Terrible lack of organization to move the people in and out of the venue. Slow slow slow. Only way to third level is via one small escalator and they had it closed after you got through their jokish security screening slowdown area. Finally opened after a... More

Great place to enjoy a hockey game or to experience a live concert. Next time there, I would not park in the garage but choose one of the outside lots. This would make leaving much faster

Great Arena, one of the best to see any event. Great XO Club, and lots of restaurants. It is very clean. The drinks are expensive, but the ticket prices are the best. Customer Service and management are 10++

Visited Amalie for Carrie Underwood and Barbra Streisand recently. Parked in S. Region Lot w ticket purchased before hand - $15. When we got to the parking lot, sign said $12 all day! Acoustics were pretty good, not the best. Enough bathrooms considering the size of crowd. Drink prices totally outrageous. Not many people drinking at all.

This is a great venue, plenty of seating outside the arena and food and drink vendors located conveniently. All staff were very pleasant and seemed to be happy. The concert that I attended I got great seats, even what I thought were nose-bleed seats, seemed to have a great view as well. The only problem is, there is absolutely no... More
