Calgary Flames Hockey Game

Great venue to see a hockey game of the Calgary Flames. Seeing a hockey game is a must during any longer vacation in Canada.

I love the Saddledome, whether it be to watch a Calgary Flames game, or to attend a concert, or to dine at the Saddleroom Grill. However, if is clear that this aged building is in need of replacement to keep up with the times. It does not flow well. The corridors are too narrow. The stairways are cramped. There are... More

Great place to see a game and tickets were reasonably priced compared to other Canadian hockey venues.

I'm not a hockey fan in the slightest, however I have gone to the Saddledome for two concerts; one was Rihanna (for my fiancée) and the other was the Who (for me). In both cases, we had a great experience. The merchandise lineups were probably the only major complaint I had with both concerts, while the shows themselves were absolutely... More

You do not need to show up three hours before a hockey game. The only thing that does is make your wife and children annoyed with you. One hour before the game just like my wife said is good enough. Have fun guys and gals!!!!

If your visiting Canada in winter, like sport and something to do in the evening, get yourself some tickets and go see an NHL game. The atmosphere is incredible and its a must do experience, they certainly know how to put a show on - the game its self is really easy to follow and much clearer when you are... More

This is an iconic stadium... a unique Saddledome that no one else can boast! Built for the Winter Olympics way back when... it's design is apparently limiting for music artists that are willing to perform there, but if Sting and Gabriel can turn up and blow away everyone then why not others!!! Generally it's Ice hockey - home to Flames... More

You might as well watch a concert on dial up modem on u-tube than seeing a concert here. Soulless. Parking terrible!

My first visit to this facility, parking was a little pricey for how far we had to walk but I guess we are near downtown, anyway great place lots of room to maneuver around between periods, lineups were ok for beverages & food, keep in mind this was the Hitmen not the Flames, seating is a little jammed but doable,...
