A Night at Tampa Bay Times Forum

As we are sitting through another cold day in the Midwest, I thought this would be a good time write about my visit to a Tampa Bay Lightning game last month.

The Lightning play at the Tampa Bay Times Forum.  The Forum opened in 1996 and a $40 million dollar renovation was completed in 2011.  Wow!  What a great facility in downtown Tampa.

The first thing you notice is the largest center hung arena video board in North America and Canada.  The board is 28 ft high and 50 ft long.

Here are a few photos of the facility:

Outside the arena and the concourses.  Note that some of the concourse areas are outdoors:

The Lightning attendance average is 19,204 per contest and the average ticket price is $38.
