  • I work for the scotiabank saddledome it a good place to work good staff good people I think if your looking for a job come to scotiabank as we put the I in team work. We have the drive that's makes us all hard working employees we care for our young staff and make sure they get home safe no worry parents and the food is set at a good fair price make sure to check us out
  • Old POS arena, inferior design limits the shows that can be held because of stupid saddle dome roof, most big acts don't come because roof structure will not support enough equipment, probably the worst arena in the NHL after Rexall place in Edmonton, which is being replaced by the state of the art Rogers Place which will vault Edmonton to the top of the list for arenas in the NHL, which will see them remain, the go to venue in Alberta
  • Went there today with the family and had a tour around the whole building from Matt. He was super nice and very knowledgeable about the history of the building and events that went on there. It was a really really great experience for all of us, especially our boy who is really into hockey and wants to play alongside the flames one day!! Thank you for making it such a pleasure for our family, we can't wait to come back!
  • So i went to watch a hockey game here. i had bought tickets for Chile (since i have travelled here, i learned that it is prounounced cheeee-layyyy) vs Africa. i just imigrated from africa so i really wanted to see them play. But it turned out to be someplace named Calgaray vs. Sask-at-ce-wane and it was really boring. i though sask-at-ce-wane was a small country innnnn the middle east. oh well. I gave it 4 stars since what happened did was not able to be controlled by saddledome people excpet that one time. I was wearing my high quliaty expensive and favourite blouse/cardigan(tuzed0/sandals) and this on staff guy put his broom down my article of clothing anyway. the one disafaction was that my friend daveed (lean on hte ee) puked into my lap multiple times. 5 times. Now 6. 7. 8. A grand total of 17. Also the beer was sour. I love beer.
  • The Saddledome was built for the 88 Winter Olympics, and it very much shows its age. The seats are uncomfortable, and green for some reason (which makes empty seats stand out like a sore thumb). The sight lines in the lower bowl are okay, but the second level is the place to be. Stay far far away from the 300s. At the top of the third tier air conditioning pipes will block most of the view of the ice. Overall: The food vendors are lacking, drink selection is poor, the acoustics are just awful, and the building is very dated. Flames need to reno or rebuild this facility soon.
