Orlando Amway Center - Orlando Florida Downtown

Amway Center - Orlando Florida
Orlando Magic developed the Amway Center, which will compete to host
major national events, concerts and family shows. The facility opened in the fall
of 2010, and is operated by the City of Orlando and owned by the Central
Florida community. The Amway Center was designed to reflect the character of
the community, meet the goals of the users and build on the legacy of sports
and entertainment in Orlando Florida.
Amway arena was designed to respond to its distinct urban setting while revealing the activities occurring within. Bounded by Church Street, Hughey Avenue, South Street and Division Avenue, the arena’s primary entrance faces north to Church Street, creating a natural extension of the nearby downtown entertainment core. The Church Street entry features a large public entry plaza connecting the arena’s spacious entry lobby.

Inside the Amway arena, patrons will find modern amenities in a comfortable setting perfect for hosting family events as well as basketball games. Concourses are spacious, offering unique concessions and activities for kids and adults alike. The Budweiser Baseline Bar on the main Terrace concourse overlooks the event floor, and children will enjoy spending time in the kid-oriented STUFF’s Magic Castle presented by Club Wyndham and retail opportunities on the upper Promenade concourse.

Amway arena has more than 1,100 screens of high-definition content via Internet Protocol Television and a state-of-the-art digital signage network which maximizes fan engagement and interaction.

Amway arena will be the first in the world to utilize high resolution 6 mm surface mount LED pixel technology on all of the center-hung digital displays. More than 9 million individual LEDs will be used in the 18 displays incorporated into the center-hung scoreboard. Overall dimensions of the center-hung scoreboard are 42 feet by 41 feet by 41 feet (HxWxD), making it the tallest and most capable of any in NBA venues. Complementing the primary scoreboard will be two LED ribbon boards mounted on the interior fascia of the seating decks.

Amway Center is located just south of Church Street on the west side of I-4 in downtown Orlando.
