I drove into The Rock in Newark which only took me about an hour from Basking Ridge. It was a pretty straight shot and very easy to find. Newark did not look like a very nice place as I was driving in so I just kept driving to get as close to the arena as I could (I didn’t want... More

Went to the Villanova vs Seton Hall basketball game. 12 noon start time. The place didn't open until 11am with dozens of people waiting in the box office vestibule for over a half hour. Doesn't the operations team realize they are missing out on all those concession sales? Finally, they open the doors and have the metal scanner wand and... More

My first visit to this facility while visiting the area was to the Devils/Penguins game. Site lines are terrific and seats are comfortable. Nice and bright. Concourse areas are wide open and bright. Food is expensive as expected. Disappointing that they don't let you bring in water (even the Steinbrenners let you bring food & drink into their stadium) and... More

Devils!! Easy trip by the PATH system. Need more restaurants closer to the arena. Food inside is good.

They are very good at getting you into your seat quickly and the staff is very friendly. But the Prices for food and drink are out of this world. $5.00 for a bottle of water. But I guess they gotcha there with no other options for food or drinks. The bathroom are OK. and the arena is very clean.

While the venue is new, the management is slowly but surely running it into the ground. No clue how to market, never mind listen to people that use it. My good friend is a 30 year season ticket holder of the NJ Devils, the front office has meetings to ask for feedback then disagrees and / or argues with the... More

First time seeing the Devils play at home. The place seems small. Maybe it's the way they compacted it? Not sure. Very quiet building for a hockey game.

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
