Best NHL arena!

Sight lines are awesome, not a bad seat in the arena! The replay scoreboard is fabulous! Fantastic vibe for a Wild hockey game.

we have been here for hockey games, and it was fine for a concert as well. It was easy to get in and out, the restrooms were clean and well located. Help for handicapped patrons very easy to obtain, staff helpful. Food and beverage prices not outrageous

Comfortable seats, really expensive concessions. A large popcorn and a bottle of soda was $11. My husband and son had a glass of $9 beer each. Plenty of variety in offering just really pricey.

We absolutely loved watching the Wild vs. the Jets in this arena. There is NOT a bad seat in the house. The spacing between the rows is steep and removes any big-headed impediment that may end up in front of you! The concession is what to be expected at a sports venue, however my husband did say that the hot... More

Love Xcel. Every seat offers great views of the action. Very easy to access no matter where you are coming from. Plenty of parking available close to arena. Great bars & restaurants within easy walking distance. The action at Wild games is not to be missed. The only real negative, which is common it seems at every arena, is the... More

Outside is a sunny spring day! Everyone on W 7th going to the game vs Detroit. I've been to some other NHL venues, but this one is "our barn". The Wild play and win here. It's a state of the art venue. I've seen every view there is, including the press box and catwalks. The best place to enjoy NHL... More

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We needed a wheel chair for my sister-in-law, and they were quick to take her where she needed to go each day. We were very pleased!!! Despite a packed stadium of women, the restrooms were kept clean and fresh as well. Kudos to the management team and staff!!!
