What a great arena, not a bad seat in the house. Great seats , food, atmosphere and staff. Every body was in a great mood and very friendly, couldn't ask for more . Tickets and vendors were reasonable. Loved it and will definitely go again.

Had a great time watching the Penguins game in the PPG Paints Arena. Overall the arena feels welcoming and clean. My seat unfortunately was stained but that's bound to happen after so many events. Employees were friendly and helpful but food and drink lines move very slowly. Expect to wait longer than usual.

This is the nicest and brightest arena in the NHL. Lots of food and beverage kiosks with plenty of washrooms.

PPG Paints arena is fairly new so it is very nice. We had a great view of the ice from our seats. The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is the lengthy lines.

Pittsburgh fans know their hockey! The atmosphere in the arena is electric, when the Penguins are winning, but the building can be very quiet when the opposition scores. All in all one of the best places to visit for hockey.

Went for the Twenty-one Pilots concert, but have been here for many hockey games. There really is not a bad seat in the house. We were up in peanut heaven for the concert, but still could see everything and the sound was perfect.

Best arena in hockey. Bright lights, sell out crowds every game, and great hockey. Not a bad seat in the house. The arena is always kept clean and still looks new each time I attend a game.
