Lightning arena getting makeover- Lightning Bolts to shoot after they score

(1/5) > >>

Saw this elsewhere... sounds pretty cool. 

The St Pete Times Forum is undergoing a 35M+ dollar renovation this offseason. Funded completely by new owner Jeff Vinik.

He is replacing every single seat, including the terrace level, with plush leather seats with cupholders. He is enhancing the lighting to make it one of the best lit arenas in the NHL. He is remodeling every single suite and all the floors. He is adding a party deck on the roof with terrace level access. He is building a grand entrance way on the west side of the Forum. Among many many other things.

But out of all of these things, and believe me all are amazing, the thing that caught my attention was this:


Wow this should be amazing. Tesla coils shooting Lightning bolts from the scoreboard whenever the Lightning score, 25 feet outward and upward is going to be an awesome effect!

 Us TB fans hit the lottery when Vinik bought the team. Hes been nothing short of amazing for not only the team but the area as well.


Mr. Leaf:
That does sound very cool indeed!  I can't wait to see it!

Sounds (and will look) interesting.  Wish we had something like that for our Leafs every time they score!

Sounds like a cheap(looking) gimmick to be honest.

At least,  it'll keep the fans coming.
