If you’re a big fan of basketball, you’ll already know that the NBA season is back for another year! But you don’t need to be a sports fan to spend an evening watching Orlando Magic play at the Amway Center! An Orlando Magic game is about so much more than just basketball, offering an evening of entertainment for everyone to enjoy, just 25 minutes away from the major theme parks.
If you don’t arrive as an NBA fan, we guarantee that after experiencing all the Amway Center has to offer you’ll be one by the time you leave! Here’s some of what you can expect:
Before every Orlando Magic game, the fun begins outside the Amway Center with Fan Fest, where the whole family can get in the spirit with live music, interactive activities, face painting and the chance to shoot some hoops of your own. In 2019, the Amway Center was voted as number 1 for fan experiences and with events like this we can see why!
Stuff’s Magic Castle
If you’re visiting with young kids who might not be able to concentrate for the full duration of a basketball game (usually around 2-2.5 hours), Stuff’s Magic Castle has got you covered! This indoor play area offers soft play, ball pits, slides, climbing frames and mini basketball hoops to keep little ones entertained. There are a number of concession stands throughout the arena that are focused on kids too so they can purchase a fun memento or two to remember their first NBA game.
If you want a true taste of classic Americana then an Orlando Magic basketball game is the place for you. Just like you see on TV and at the cinema, the entertainment at the Amway Center is one of the highlights of the evening. Cheerleaders, drummers, dancers and a hype squad get the crowd amped up and ready to see the players take to the court and we challenge you to not get involved with all the excitement!
An evening out wouldn’t be complete without some good food and drinks, and the Amway Center has plenty for you to choose from! There are a total of 9 restaurants and bars at the arena including a rooftop bar, and a restaurant that looks directly down to the arena bowl during Orlando Magic games! Plus, if you book Ultimate Seating, you’ll get all-inclusive food and drink, including beer and wine before, during and after the game.
