Made the trip from Toronto area to watch a Leafs game, as tickets are soooo much cheaper in Florida. We got our tickets through StubHub and opted to get ADT club seats, which I would highly recommend doing rather than getting "regular" seats. Pretty sure...More

Overall the BB&T is a nice venue with amble parking and well kept interior. Traffic in and out can be difficult but it isn't killer as the highway is like a mile away. This review score is explicitly for the "Club Lexus" offering and the...More

Easy to get to. Lots of parking. Fun night! Had a blast with my two buddies after a day of golfing in the sun, was nice to cool off.

We attended a Panthers hockey game. The building is gorgeous, plenty of parking and easy to get around inside the building. The sound system here is terrible. It kept cutting out during announcements or the frivolous in-game fan entertainment. There is not a bad seat,...More

The seats are seriously close together. Very little walking to get to your seat--feels like you are falling. Great sound, but seats are horrible.

Lovely arena with great sight lines and their jumbotron to catch all of the action. Nice variety of food and beverages on offer, but just like all arenas/stadiums the prices for alcoholic beverages are steep. Had a great time even though the home team lost....More

BB&T Center has this rule about the size of purses for women. No more than 12 inches. That's crazy and unnecessary!

Let us start with the good thing. The BB&T center is just next to Sawgrass mall which mean you can park for free very close to the arena. Basically the center is the same as the American Airlines arena in Miami, and I am sure...More

If this is true, its absolutely ludicrous and ticketmaster and/or BBT center should be fined....again, if its true that they are reselling tickets in a blocked off excluded area, where the website CLEARLY states that this section includes food, bar, etc with no warning or anything claiming that resold tickets would be allowed entry to their seats (which require going through club lexus) but not allowed to enjoy the perks, That makes no sense at all. those tickets are priced VERY high for that SPECIFIC reason, that they should include everything that comes with club lexus. (you wont ever find a ticket under $200 in that section). But if they are willingly and knowingly allowing ticketmaster to resell these seats without making it blatnatly obvious that they dont include the perks, then that is just pure criminal. regular tickets to a panthers game can be bought for as low as $4...so if you are selling poeple club lexus seats for 200+ and not including the club lexus perks, that is just wrong.
