Good seats, good game --- except for the loss by the Wild. The arena is easy to get to and easy to get around. It is so noisy though --- all that loud music. Many food choices --- all over priced. Water at $4.50 --- a bit much.

Even though the second level was a little steep, we had great seats. Loved the local beer selections, I think I tried all of them throughout the course of the game. Long walk to the bathrooms but then I found out I walked the wrong way and the bathrooms were right there by where our seat were.

Went there to see a Minnesota wild hockey game while visiting on a business trip. Plenty of parking around the stadium easy to get in easily get out. Very clean they really know what they're doing here. Not a bad seat in the entire stadium. Really my only complaint was when I first arrived an hour before the game or... More

If you stay at the Crown Plaza make sure you get a room that has been renovated! Excel Energy Center is awesome for a hockey game!

Went to the Wild vs. Coyotes hockey game and it was a blast. A lot of things going on in the arena. Lots of choices for food, drinks and a lot more. Fan friendly, kid friendly and well worth the price for everything I feel. Great job and keep up the great work!
