The Scotiabank Saddledome, Calgary

3.7
Scotiabank Saddledome is a multi-use indoor arena in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Located in Stampede Park in the southeast end of downtown Calgary, the Saddledome was built in 1983 to replace the Stampede Corral as the home of the Calgary Flames of the National Hockey League, and to host ice hockey and figure skating at the 1988 Winter Olympics.The facility also hosts concerts, conferences and other sporting championships, and events for the Calgary Exhibition and Stampede. It underwent a major renovation in 1994–95 and sold its naming rights, during which its original name of Olympic Saddledome was changed to Canadian Airlines Saddledome. The facility was given the name Pengrowth Saddledome in 2000, after Pengrowth Management Ltd. signed a ten-year agreement. It adopted its current name in October 2010 as Scotiabank signed on as title sponsor.The Saddledome is owned by the City of Calgary, who leases it to the Saddledome Foundation, a non-profit organization, to oversee its operation. Since 1996, it has been managed by the Flames. The Saddledome was damaged during the 2013 Alberta floods but was repaired and reopened in time for the 2013–14 NHL season.

  • Getting out of here after a hockey game or any big event is a pain. There are also not enough bathrooms! Place could not only use an update but a size increase in order to host bigger events.  more »

  • Very unique stadium, but unfortunately this stadiums best days are behind it. From the long lines for washrooms, jam packed concourses, and constant stream of people going up the aisles to the upper deck, this arena is not very fan friendly. Decent once you're in your seat, as long as it's not the upper deck, that's about it
  • Not bad for an aging arena. Concession prices are very high. If you can avoid having to park on the grounds you're better off.
  • The restaurant was fantastic. Great evening with the Auto Finance team at Scotia Bank
  • Watched the Calgary Hitmen with family. Perfect family atmosphere. A lot of activities for kids on the concourse, i.e. face painting
  • The staff are absolutely excellent; efficient food vendors, friendly ushers, quick bar staff. The building itself is old- the oldest in the current NHL roster of hockey arenas. Nothing is falling apart but the whole place cries out fr an upgrade. The sightlines fr concerts are great but the backstage facilitirs cant accomodate large stage setups. Hence many famous artists skip us in favour of Edmonton or Winnipeg. Go enjoy a Roughnecks or Hitmen game fr the full experience w much better prices...
