Amway Center Tour: Photos, Pictures & Prints!

October 1, 2010

The Amway Center officially opened for the first time to the public today as Mayor Buddy Dyer and 50 others cut the ribbon and christened the new building.  After 47 political speeches took place, there was a private media tour of the entire facility.  Below are some photos I snapped.  Bottom line: this building is truly one of a kind.  I must have muttered “wow” at least 20 times.  Favorite place?  The Gentleman Jack Terrace.  GJT overlooks I-4 and Downtown and with the first hint of fall weather hitting today, it was simply gorgeous out on the terrace.  As soon as you get a chance, make sure you check out the building.  You won’t be disappointed.  Pictures to follow plus many more after the “jump”.

Giant scissors... never know when you are going to need them!

The building is just simply amazing. These pictures truly don’t do the building justice.  Check it out soon!
