Whenever I frequent this arena I'm using a suite. This is the best experience while attending concerts, games, etc. The suites are pretty expensive but if you split the cost with a group the pricing works out for everyone compared to the food, drinks, etc that you get. The food in the suites are pretty good if you select that... More

Traveled to see the Islanders play in NJ. It is a great arena. Amenities are plentiful, food options are good and sight lines for game and great. Bonus, my Islanders won 3-0. I'll be back next year for more fun.

Devils games at the prudential center truly are exciting! They constantly have contests, are filming the fans, and everyone is generally having a great time. Food as always is good sport food of course over priced ( normal stadium pricing ). Overall, Great game will be back, def helped we won!! GO DEVILS!!

"The Rock" is conveniently located for home and away team fans. We've driven and taken the train here - either way are simple and inexpensive. There are several lots, ranging from $15 - $40, around the Pru. Center. Fans can also choose special parking for an additional fee when purchasing their game/season tickets. The train to NJ Penn Station from... More

The area is a little sketchy, but there is good police presence before and after events. There is also an indoor path for Penn Station to the area that I would recommend. The Devils have the coolest opening sequence in hockey.

I am an NHL Hockey Fan and not a Devils Fan, but the Prudential Center is well located to transportation options via NJ Penn Station and there is parking at all price levels from free street parking to $30 next to the Arena. There is plenty of security and traffic control on game days. The Arena is well laid out... More

Suck it up and pay the extra $ for the club seats - they're worth it. I lost my iPhone at the game and they actually found it and sent it back to me via UPS - security and guest services staff were awesome. Also, the clam roll with bacon and tartar sauce was fantastic.
