We went there with a friend for a wild game. It was really great. The arena is impressing and the local crowd amazing. The atmosphere during the entire game was great! There is a large choice of food inside and it's crazy expensive and there aren't enough restrooms but other than that great experience.

This place is awesome! Went for a Minnesota Wild game and the staff was very helpful, and it was very easy to get around. Concession prices are high so be prepared for that!

This place is by far the best venue for watching a hockey game. The sight lines are terrific. The concourses are very spacious. The food choices are excellent.

Been here many times for Concerts and hockey. This is one of the best venue's I have ever been to. Clean, easily accessible, decent parking, great staff. Incredible views from all of the levels. Recommend getting there early cause St Paul traffic sucks.

This place is a great venue for any type of convention, a great view from every viewing area! Alot of steps for those that are in search a little extra exercise, plenty of places to purchase food ( a little pricey), bathrooms are in need of some attention, but plenty of stalls for a crowd. All in all, a nice... More

There is not a bad place to sit in this arena for a hockey game. You have great views even from the nosebleed sections. Clear and open with a huge videotron mounted above the arena with views on all sides. The seats are comfortable for an arena. Many vendors with a large array of food and beverages to purchase all...

The road work around the area is a big bummer. Not to easy for an out of town person to roam through the streets. Glad it was day light when we found a parking place. The Xcel is clean and roomy in side the hallways. The home town crowd can make the noise! Great place to see a hockey game... More
