The outside wall of the atrium features a 9.1-by-15.2-metre video screen overlooking the plaza, which often broadcasts games taking place inside the arena. During NHL and NBA playoff runs, the square attracts thousands of Leafs and Raptors fans, respectively, sometimes broadcasting away playoff matches featuring the Leafs and/or the Raptors as well. During Raptors playoff runs, the square has acquired the nickname "Jurassic Park".

We recommend booking your travel with an Elite Sports Tours representative so you pick a hotel close to the attractions you want to see.
