“Great local venue that holds many different events!”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

From "Home of the Panthers," graduations, concerts and everything in between,this venue does it all. Bring cash because it's not cheap (when has any arena ever been cheap?) but if you happen to own a Lexus, you have complimentary parking in the lexus lot,so get there early! Thank you South Florida Lexus dealers!

“Bring Cash . . . Lots of Cash”
Reviewed 6 April 2014

On the one hand, a great venue to see almost any type of event. There is ample parking, little traffic getting in and out, a well laid out arena and plenty of concession stands with lots of food choices.

On the other, be prepared to pay big. Not just typical arena overprices, but even more. We go to many arenas and venues throughout the U.S. and the BB&T Center as it is now called puts most of them to shame. $11 for a soda, $12 for a turkey sandwich, about $20 for a "double" liquor drink. In fact, one of the bartenders was complaining that the prices are now so high that she is seeing a reduction in sales and tips. That said, the food is not bad. If you are going to an event, I suggest you eat before or after though, and limit yourself to snacks and a drink. That's we now do there because we can feed our entire family of 4 for what it costs for a few soft drinks and pretzels. We can afford the prices, but we have gotten to the point where it is just silly and a waste of money at the BB&T concession stands now.

“Sunrise, Florida - Feb 14th 2014”
Reviewed 16 February 2014

A surprise Val day gift from my daughter - ANDREA BOCCELLI - fabulous.
The town of Sunrise was disappointing. Hotels overpriced - we made the
mistake of eating at Giovannis - disgusting - overpriced and almost inedible.
Much better was One Burger. But the BB and T Center was great - polite
staff and very clean. We were just next door to Ikea - which was much
more fun for us than the big shopping mall. La Quinta desk personnel
were very polite and knowledgeable.

“Hockey Fans”
Reviewed 27 January 2014

If you are a hockey fan - ok the Panthers traditionally aren't that good…but it's a great venue to see your favourite visiting team and players come to play. It's never an issue getting tickets to the games and decent seats at a reasonable price. Much better change then in some the the traditional hockey markets. mind you $20 for parking is steep in my opinion. Because crowds are usually sparse, it doesn't take long to get out and on the road home. If you have the change try to get seats in Club Red - best seats in the house and complimentary buffet and drinks! can't go wrong with that.
