Germain Arena is a 7,186-seat multi-purpose arena in Estero, Florida, United States.HistoryThe arena was first named Everblades Arena in 1998 after the hockey team that played there.

  • We have been to a few shows at Germain including Cirque, comedians, Disney On Ice shows, as well as hockey games. Recently we took our three year old to see OVO by Cirque du Soleil and it was awesome....  read more »
  • Our first experience at the Germain Arena was the Cirque du Soleil. It was the optimal size for a show like this. Most every seat has a good view, the seats are fairly comfortable and the sound is bet...  read more »
  • We saw, again, the Cirque Du Soeil performers and some of the acts were hard to describe. The balance and agelity required was incredible. ASome of the made my knee hurt to watch. Each act seemed bett...  read more »
  • Was just at Germain Arena for the Wild N' Out concert and the security forced everyone that DIDNT get a autograph to leave the building, and was not done in a professional manner as should a professional security business should do and know that their job is to deal and communicate with the public and it doesn't mean that you have to be rude or arrogant just to tell someone that Nick Cannon changed his mind about autographs. Only the staff knows this information, inform the actual paying customers that autographs have been canceled instead of treating ticket holders as if we knew of this information. I feel like the whole night was ruined due to staff and that's a shame and makes this establishment and anyone wanting to perform here look awful. I couldn't even buy merchandise and was waiting in line to do so when was asked if I worked there, that if not, leave now. And there was around 200 people standing there also. Absolutely unprofessional. And would think if Nick Cannon or the Wild N' Out crew were to see how their paying and supportive customers were just treated after the preformance, would be in shock.
  • Worse time at a restaurant that I've ever had. We had a 630 reservation for a 730 concert. You would think that being in the same building , you would make it to your seat in time, but no. We decided to have Valentine's day dinner at the restaurant they have. The service was the worst I have ever experienced. I just hope the waitress we had is in school to be something else, because she will never make it waiting tables. I just don't understand having to have my credit card before i start to eat. They made us start a tab, probably expecting people to walk out. My friends ordered their first round of drinks that took at least 20 min to receive. I'm talking a bud lite and a glass of wine only. After they ordered their second round, the concert had begun. And they never received them. I had to beg for our checks just so we wouldn't miss anymore of the first act than we already had. We finally got our checks and my friends had been charged for the drinks they never received. I would highly recommended McDonalds over this place if you are going to eat before a concert. Thanks for ruining the whole vibe of our Valentine's day.
  • Coolest restaurant I've been too. Nice place to watch some hockey eh
  • I never went ice skateing before an i just randomly went with family it was awsome and cheap i hope to go again the only negitave thing i have to say about it is the food and drinks are like 2x as much as what it should be i bought a pizza 13$ that not so bad i guess but the fanta and spraite came out to be 8$ i was thinking to my self what the hell lol
  • Awesome place for all kinds of events. Love the facility! Staff aren't the friendliest though.
