Right up front, the facilities here are not what you come for; but at the same time, kind of are. If you're expecting lavish accommodations in a nice, new, clean arena, this isn't for you. This is the Mad House on Hickman and in all...More

The arena itself needs updated. Locker rooms are small, bathrooms are old and concession stands are small. That being said, it is still lots of fun to attend Bucs games there do to atmosphere and fan base.

Our family loves hockey so we go here often. We always have a great time but this arena needs a face lift so badly. Spend the extra few dollars and purchase the seats on the glass or on a corner, the upper seating consist of...More

This is the home of a semi pro ice hockey team. I have gone to several games. I had beer spilled all over my head twice and beer dumped in my lap one time. The crowd at an exciting hockey game gets drunk and rowdy....More

An old rink but great fans. It was loud and fun and never a dull moment. Skip the hot dogs (questionable) and go for a pretzel instead. OK for kids though the crowd was a bit profane at times.

If you like hockey at all the small arena is great. The team is always young with fast action and tickets are cheap. Free parking across the street.

I have taken my kids to a couple of games at Buccaneer Arena. The hockey is always fast paced and fun to watch. It is one of the most reasonable sporting events for the family to attend. The tickets are fairly priced and the food...More

We love hockey and have never been disappointed by the Bucs. It's an exciting and fun place to be. The crowd is friendly and outgoing. The food isn't bad either. A little pricey for my pocket. I love this place

I've been to a couple Buccaneer games over the past couple years. This place is fairly well maintained. Additionally, there is not a bad seat in the place. The last time I visited was for the 2015 Guns vs. Hoses (e.g., police vs. fire) competition/fundraiser....More
