Went for the 02/18 game against Nashville. What a blast! This is the cleanest and most well taken care of sports venue I've been to. Everybody here was so nice! Fans were super polite and respectful.

Every seat here is excellent for hockey. Have been to numerous concerts as well and both the seating and sound have always been excellent. Great arena! The men's bathroom's can get crazy congested:(

I have been to the Excel Energy Center a dozen times, but I figured it's time to give a good review. Went to the Wild game on 2/12 against the Red Wings. One of the best arenas I've been to. Great seating, clean arena and a fun atmosphere. Also plenty of options for vendors.

Went to a Wild -Blackhawks game, thought the stadium was very nice , seats where comfortable, upper level was very steep, but comfortable , didn't eat much food, but did have some hot donuts that where great.seems like there are good view from everywhere to see a game . Overall my experience was good , and would definitely return.

I've been to this event center many times for games and for concerts this is one of the greatest event centers to host any type of show and especially to watch the Minnesota wild play!
