I have been to numerous rinks for NHL and College games. This is easily one of the best as far as buildings go. The concessions are great and the "Taste of Newark" concept is brilliant. Being able to highlight local dishes and all is a great idea because it helps people who normally would not have any desire to be... More

As a seasoned hockey fan, I enjoy traveling around the country seeing games at different arenas. This was my first visit to see the Devils at Prudential Center (after their move from the Meadowlands). The location of the building is convenient to most of the major highways and Penn Station, and was especially great since I was staying at the... More

Nice atmosphere to watch a hockey game. Set up of the arena is great, and appeared to be lots of parking surrounding the arena, plus Penn Station is just 2 blocks away. Nice sight lines and in game entertainment. Overall a very nice place to watch a game.

My favorite arena in the area, followed closely by Barclays. The layout is nice and no matter where you sit you don't seem too far away. I've seen all kinds of events here and sat in all different areas and have always been happy. The food is average arena food and nothing really stands out but the Fire & Ice... More

Good for ice shows with young children, but very short on bathroom facilities and long on lines for food and souvenirs which are very very expensive.

Visited for basketball game. Very expensive, low quality food offering yet getting slowly better with more choice. QPR is bad. Parking is expensive but convenient from adjacent ramp. Higher level seating is average.

I revisited the Prudential Center last winter for an ice show. I sat in the first row on the ice. Unfortunately, an usher with a smile on his face walked in front of us several times. It seemed very unnecessary and disruptive to me watching the show. I have no idea what he was doing. When I used to go... More
