The Amway Center is unlike any arena ever built. From its signature spire and modern architecture to its public spaces and comfortable amenities, Orlando’s world class arena serves as a unique and beautiful centerpiece to the city’s vibrant downtown.
With an ultimate capacity of more than 20,000 seats, the arena features a large public entry plaza connecting to the Amway Center’s spacious lobby. Inside the Amway Center, you’ll find bigger seats, better sight lines, and myriad amenities on every level. Concourses are spacious, offering unique concessions and activities for kids and adults alike. The Club Restaurant and the Ozone Bar overlook the event floor, and children can enjoy a kid-oriented fun zone and retail store on the upper concourse.
Technologically, Amway Center is one of the most advanced ever built, highlighted by the main scoreboard – the largest of its kind in the NBA. Measuring approximately 42-feet high and weighing more than 40 tons, its four primary video displays offer high definition imagery in 4.4 trillion shades of color. The building’s exterior features a modern blend of glass and metal, along with ever-changing graphics depicted on a giant wall along one facade while a 180-foot tall tower serves as a beacon amid the downtown Orlando skyline.
