I have been to many NHL Games all over the country. This stadium, these fans, are the best of any state (including my own, sorry to say). I'm a die hard hockey fan, Red Wings are my team, and these fans are as true as I have ever seen. If I lived in MN, I would spend far too much... More

Our best seats to date! Front row! I've loved the. Cel since it opened. They have twice the restrooms twice the concession stands and the seats are comfy. The acoustics are sooo much better than target center for concerts. Minnesota Wilds home arena. Awesome.

One of the best venues in the NHL even though it is over 15 years old now! Place has a new extra-large jumbotron which is great for replays. A lot of mental stimulation in this building that's for sure. LED boards all over the place and constant noise, etc. Sat 6 rows up from the ice just in line with... More

Went to the Wild/Habs game and it was my first Wild game. The atmosphere was great, the people were kind, and the entertainment was solid.

Events are typically expensive - but the cost of parking is a form of robbery in my opinion. Parking in Saint Paul is a nightmare to begin with and I do my best to not have to do anything in Saint Paul any longer. I live in the suburbs - I'm NOT a native to Minnesota, and I honestly hope... More

The arena is a great place to see an NHL game at. This is he home arena for the Minnesota Wild. The sight lines are good and atmosphere for hockey is very good and fans are kind. For concerts, the acoustics are good and sight lines are good.
