|About these ratings|
For a taste of true Canadian sportsmanship, make your way to Scotiabank Saddledome, home of the National Hockey League's Calgary Flames. Having moved from Atlanta in 1980, the Flames won Calgary over in 1989 when they claimed the Stanley Cup. Since then, this beloved sports team has been a symbol of pride for Calgarians; they celebrate the Flames' wins on 17th Avenue SW or "The Red Mile."
The Saddledome even plays an active role in city life during the off-season, hosting special events like concerts, rodeos and even visits from such notable world figures as Queen Elizabeth II and the Dalai Lama. One Yelp.com user writes: "The dome is a special place for me. It's a nice structure shaped like a saddle and the interior isn't too shabby either. Easy to navigate and the people here for hockey games are just awesome."
Some complain about the cost of food and drink here, but prices are generally comparable to those found in other sports arenas. For more information about upcoming events and ticket prices, visit the Scotiabank Saddledome website.
