These young players are an awful lot of fun to watch! Affordable night out for the family. We have been to many, many games here. It’s exciting to see these kids play and then later go on to college and pro teams.

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.

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.

Being a fan of an away team, this makes me visitor who is an outsider of sorts. Wearing the opponents jersey, you never know what to expect. First off the arena is very old, possibly one of the oldest if not the oldest in the...More

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
