Love coming to the Prudential Center. It's pretty easy to get to, and convienently located from the highway. I always get VIP parking in the garage if it's available because it's just easier than parking somewhere else in Newark. Parking can be kind of expensive, but again, I don't mind paying for the convenience and the safety. Good section of... More

I've enjoyed every concert I attended at the Rock. Most recently Imagine Dragons. The grounds and facility are clean, decent food, somewhat more intimate feeling than some other arenas. Staff were pleasant and entry was reasonable. Parking and exiting after the show can be a bit of a grind. My highly recommended helpful tip is to take the train to... More

We were in section 22 which is elevated above the sections to the left making it very easy to see the stage. There was an entire vacant row in front of us which was weird, then 2 rows where out of the only 6 people that could block our view by standing up, did that for much of the show.... More

The seats in our area were very loose or so it seemed, every time the girl next to me moved the whole row of seats rocked and the floor bounced when she danced. Overall the building was nice the restrooms were clean... More

We enjoyed attending the concert. All employees we came into contact with were friendly. We watched the show from the floor and I felt they were a little understaffed. They only had one person in our area to keep people from sneaking up to steal a better seat. The poor girl had her hands full but she did very well... More

I was attending an event, and as time was late figured I'd grab a quick something at the venue. They were offering a chicken tender and french fries combo, and I have to say that they were probably one of the most delicious ones I've ever had! Crispy, moist, piping hot tenders; perfectly salted fries, yum! For a quick, grab... More

Bought tickets to see The Princess Bride: An Inconceivable Evening with Cary Ewles. We were on the fourth level. Having never visited this venue before did not know how high or how steep this section was. I had a panic attack as I'm scared of heights. Although I know that is not the fault of the venue, they would not... More

Seen a show with a group of friends and kids had fun enjoying Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey. Parking is rough to find you forced to pay in Newark. Traffic is horrible but that's city life.
