This was our first time at The Prudential Center to watch the New Jersey Devils play and they won! We took the PATH train and walked through an indoor gateway for a few minutes and then walked one outdoor block to the arena entrance. We absolutely loved the entire experience - lots of super enthusiastic fans with great audience activities... More

Surprised wife with 4 tickets to see Pentatonix on Nov 10th and arrived to find their "production" people had closed off our entire section. Pru Ctr staff held us up waiting for relocation tickets and then told us they ran out of tickets? Told us if we wanted we could go to our original seats (Sec 128, Front Row) we... More

Great first class facility. Parked on the street and walked a few blocks to avoid parking fee. Only drawback is food is expensive. Had a soda for about 7 bucks. There were lots of young children and families that were Gymnastics fans. Sat in lower level. Good view! Would come here again for an event!

I haven't been to the Prudential Center in years until recently I attended a show. Overall it is a nice venue. I had some issues with them this last time however. I went to see the Impractical Jokers Live event. First off, I paid in advance for ADA accessible parking so that my friend would not have to walk very... More

Got the opportunity to get to a game, and forgot to post it till now. The Downside? Everything is costly. That said they are on the trendy edge of Arena eats, and since it opened I've sat in a few places around it, including a stop once in a corporate box. Haven't seen a terrible seat yet, but haven't been... More

Nice event space with plenty of surrounding parking. The further away you park the cheaper it gets. Parked across the street for $25.00. We attended Impractical Jokers Live and had trouble understanding most of what they were saying. Actually had to go home and watch it on TIVO, so was disappointed for this specific event solely because of their sound... More

We came to the Prudential Centre to watch a hockey game between the Devils and Chicago Black hawks. As an avid sports family we have been to many rinks around the US and Canada. This place is up to par with easy accessibility good seat selection and views. Only two recommendations I would make is to follow the lead of... More
