Tickets to go to a Maple Leafs game are going to cost you a couple of bucks -- they are in the top five in highest ticket prices in the NHL. To see a hockey game of an original six team, especially the Toronto Maple Leafs, is worth every penny. I have been to hockey games all over North America, including Madison Square Garden (I am a Rangers season ticket holder), Molson Centre (Montreal Canadians), Continental Arena (New Jersey Devils), and the Nassau Coliseum (New York Islanders) but the Air Canada Centre is the most electrifying. The history of the Maple Leafs franchise is reason enough to come to a game here.
With high ticket prices comes high food and drink prices. Nothing comes cheap once you're inside the Air Canada Centre. A beer will set you back about $8 Canadian. They serve your typical arena food at the game like hot dogs, hamburgers, and fries. Looking for something more? Have a steak sandwich, deli sandwich, or some sushi. The Air Canada Centre has quite a variety of food choices available to you.
My final word to you is this: if you are in Toronto, and you do not go to a Maple Leafs game at the Air Canada Centre, you are making a very big mistake. This city is built on hockey. They love hockey in Toronto. Ask the doorman at your hotel how many cups the Maple Leafs have won. Without hesitation he will tell you -- eleven. If you were visiting New York City, wouldn't you visit the Empire State Building or the Statue of Liberty? In Toronto, you go to a Mpale Leafs hockey game. It is as simple as that.

The tour is interesting enough taking you through this immaculate facility. You'll get to go inside Tie Domi's private box, one of the platinum suites, the Raptors practice facility, the Leafs hall of fame, the various restaurants, and all sorts of other places. When the Leafs are away you sometimes get to see their dressing room. Getting a view of the visitors dress room is more likely.
The tour leans more towards the hockey operations, but does include the basketball side of things too. It is indeed quite interesting and a decent way to kill an hour or two.
