Saw Disney on Ice at the Prudential Center. Nice building, people working there were extremely nice. Having this building in the center of a city, not so nice.. Traffic, one way streets and streets blocked off were a hassle..

Attended Seton Hall commencement 2015 Graduation. Well organized, police presence made us feel comfortable. We don't take public transportation, plenty of parking, however, charging New York City prices for parking.

Went to a Disney on Ice event at the Pru Center. Disney was great. Pru should be ashamed of themselves! Where is the money going when parking is 30.00 dollars, 4 waters 20.00, 4 pretzels 20.00 and children's souvenir 18.00-25.00. Your kidding me.....at a children's event! In sure the city is taking a piece of the action and one can... More

Visited the Prudential on nov 14th for Devils v penguins. An excellent arena,staff very helpful,fans friendly and arena itself modern and clean. Transport from Manhatten to newark good too,10 minute walk through busy but safe roads. My only criticism is the price of the food/drinks.

Attended Penguins vs Devils game of 11/15/15. This was the night after the terror attack in Paris. They did not open the doors to the arena until 30 minutes before the puck drop. I have never been to this arena before, so I cannot say if that is normal or because of the heightened security. During the moment of silence,... More

Great and modern facilities, clean. Box and VIP seating is great and service is the best. For concerts mostly all seats have clear views. Don't really recommend seats in the 200s, although, unless you have 20/20 vision.

I enjoyed a pleasant experience and evening with business associates. We talked,ate and finally met face to face after years of phone calls, never having seen each other. The ambience VIP suite, private and memorable. There was plenty of room to move around and the food quality and tasty. I look forward to my next visit.

I recently attended a conference here and I enjoyed everything about the venue.Regardless of where you were sitting, the views were great, which was a plus. At times I wondered if the acoustics were a little off, but overall I felt it was a very good venue.

Venue is fine, it's an arena. I liked IZOD better because of its location, parking, and overall cozy feel. What I will say is Prudential has horrible customer service. Never call you back or answer emails to simple questions. Says a lot about the people working there. Call your customers back! They spend good money there and deserve at least... More

I have been here 2 times for concerts in the past few years. This is a nice newer arena located in Downtown Newark. Parking lots surround the arena but unfortunately charge crazy amounts of money. The night I was there for the Judas Priest concert I was charged $35. I guess that's the price you pay for wanting to go... More
