This is one of the premier places to catch hockey. A majority of the seats have fantastic sight lines. The staff are helpful. There is even a family room for nursing mothers! I have been to many events at the X but a Wild game is the tops- especially when they win- which they did this time. It is a... More

The parking around Xcel Energy Center is a little crazy & gets even crazier when a show lets out. We decided to park in a hotel parking garage that was several blocks away. It made for a little bit of a walk and was the same cost as parking closer but after the show we got right out. It was... More

All seats seem to be good as what we have seen. Sat in top row last night for Wild vs. Penguins and had a blast. Great company with fans and easy to find seating areas. The ushers were all smiling and everything is always being cleaned we noticed. Easy to enter and exit the arena and we had a grea... More

We saw James Taylor here and were pleased with how the space did not feel like a huge barn the way so many of these places do. Signage for the restrooms could have been better or there could have been more of them, otherwise, it was a fine place.

This is the best venue for any concert ,sporting and special event. The club level is the only way to go for a sporting event.

Xcel is a terriffic hockey venue. Everything is family friendly and very attentive security and crowd management. Refreshments & food are expensive; which is normal for this type. The scoreboard entertainment center is huge and beautiful. Life is good when I can watch the "Wild in the state of hockey!"

My wife & I went to our first NHL game and though we sat up in the 200 level, it was a pretty nice view of the action. The big HD video board helps for catching replays. First thing my wife noticed were the seats; very comfortable. Cushioned, not just plastic like some other arenas. Can't really compare the "X"... More

Went to see a Wild game during a business trip, and was really surprised by the Xcel Energy Center. I normally see sporting events in Philadelphia, and this place is far superior to the Wells Fargo center. There is good food, good beer, and it has character...also very clean with a lot of friendly people. Would definitely visit again.

The United Center isn't bad but it's such a big venue and you are far away from the action if you are up top. We saw a preseason game between the Minnesota Wild and the St. Louis Blues. We sat in the 200 level and still had pretty good seats it holds about 18,000 fans and you are closer to... More

This venue was clean and the staff was very helpful in helping you find your way. Enjoyed seeing all of the hockey jerseys on display and of course the Peanuts characters. Typical arena food and high prices for what you get but inline with others.
