The Skydome

One stadium in Toronto has hosted The Blue Jays, The Raptors, The Buffalo Bills and Toronto Argonauts, as well as many concerts and plenty of main events. It is now known as the Rogers Centre, (especially to those who are born after the 92-93 World Series) but if you are or were a fan from 1989 to 2005, it will forever remain the Skydome.

The Dome, just as it is opening.

Fun Fact 1: The highest attendance for the Dome came from Wrestlemania 18 in 2002 with 68, 237 people.

Fun Fact 2: The venue was noted for being the first stadium to have a fully retractable motorized roof, as well as for the 348-room hotel attached to it, with 70 rooms overlooking the field.
