Amway Arena


Amway Arena was also Orlando Arena, TD Waterhouse Centre, and The Arena in Orlando. Amway Arena is no longer an indoor area in Orlando, Florida. It has instead become part of the Centroplex, which is a sports and entertainment venue in downtown.

The original Amway Arena is no longer going to be used. It is set for demolish by the end of 2011. There is a new place called Amway Center. Before its closing in 2010, the arena was home to Orlando Magic, Orlando Predators, Orlando Titans, and it also hosted many events. For example, the PlayStation Pro Event was held there during the Dew Action Sports Tour. The Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus also hosted their circus event annually.

It had event space for up to 18,000 people depending on the event. Amway Arena was said to be out of date the moment its doors opened. It was built to NBA specifics. It then needed renovations in order to create a better complex. Unfortunately, Orlando Magic felt it was still not big enough and started asking for a new facility in 2000. Since the team was losing money, Orlando refused to make contributions. However, they now have the Amway Center.
