First time to the arena to see an Everblades game. Very good ticket prices and reasonable concession prices. Had a good time and would go again. If going to a Hockey game, dress warm. It was cold in the building but it was an ice hockey game. Sweatshirt or jacket and long pants recommended.
I am so saddened and disappointed by the way the staff handled circumstances caused by the rainy weather today. Today was my brothers graduation and as we were waiting in line to enter it began to rain and those of us closest to the doors managed to get inside. The staff knew it was beginning to rain and they knew the rain was coming before it started. They closed the doors on the rest of the families AND GRADUATES leaving them to get soaked in the rain. There was also a handicap graduate left outside to get soaked as well. They had no courtesy to at least let the graduates in so they didn’t ruin their cap and gowns or even the ladies who had done their hair and make up for this big day. They didn’t allow us to pass through the detectors to create more space for more people or to allow us all to enter into the building to keep those left outside to get more soaked. I’ve been there before and it’s always great service and amazing staff but today was beyond ridiculous. They also had it freezing cold and it was uncomfortable for many people to sit through that cold for so long especially after getting wet. I get it, follow the procedures and protocols in place but it instances like these make exceptions and LET PEOPLE IN SO THEY DON’T GET FREAKING WET AND RUIN THEIR CLOTHES AND SIT FREEZING COLD IN THERE. ALSO HANDICAP PERSONS SHOULD ALWAYS BE LET IN BEFORE ANYONE ELSE. They also kept letting in others like teachers and school staff and refused to let it THE GRADUATES AND FAMILIES. We were all deeply saddened and angry at the way it was all handled. I hope in the future it will be handled better.
My boyfriend's family has season tickets to watch the Everglades play hockey. The two times I have gone have both been a great experience. For a smaller arena it is well organized, and it doesn't feel crowded. Clean bathrooms at multiple locations. Plenty of draft options to drink and a plenty of food options in the concession stand.
Watched the everblades play. The game was a come from behind. 1 second left goal to tie it up, then a quick over time winner... what's not to like!place is clean, security a little over the top. Important note for people with bags woman especially, if it's larger then a post card they will make you go back and put it in your car.
Great facility. Being a hockey playing Canadian , I rate this place 5 stars.
