🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥I got the pressure of coming here with our local rugby team to come and watch the our national team play. It was awesome, loved everything about the place. When it comes to food and drinks you are covered no need of going out for food, or coming with it, you will find it there, also the liquor drinkers there is no need to worry because they are covered. Its awesome for family as well.
The Shark Tank never dissapoints, it is a great example of a theme merchandise store. My only concern is that there is little change from visit to visit (every six months or so). If you are comparing other theme merchandise stores (especially sporting teams) around the world then the Shark Tank is really reasonable with the price, still team merchandise will never be cheap. The ticket office is well situated with easy access and parking. The club membership is also pretty reasonable. Get your seasonal tickets here! A little known gem is the Sharks Medical Center, open to the public and staffed by some of the best in the business. You may even bump into the Beast in his shiny new Wakanda Jersey!
