I've been to this arena for several types of events (arena football, college basketball, concerts, ice hockey) and the facilities are nice. Parking is available but you will most likely have to pay for it and walk a good ways. Lower level seating has its own concession areas. Boxes are also nice for hockey.

Most of my visits are for hockey games. It's a great arena for the sport whether behind the goalie or in the upper deck. Tix are pricey but it is pro hockey.

The place to go for hockey or basketball. Best to get seats in the lower section as the upper section is pretty far from the action

Great venue but the food is average at best, and both the food and drink prices are way too high. The establishment knows they "gotchya", and take full advantage of the situation. If level of quality of venues doesn't keep up with high prices of food and beverage, people are going to find other "value added" forms of entertainment.

We really enjoy attending many different events at the PNC arena in Raleigh! You are warmly welcomed upon arrival and the seats are comfortable with a nice view, food service areas are very good with a nice variety to choose from, and a nice bar area with special food by invitation only. We have season tickets for basketball, so we... More

Very Nice facility but because of weather we did not get to see outside very much. Beautiful shot of Wolf Pac Stadium. We had dinner in the restaurant at the PNC Centre, Buffet Style $32.00 each but the food was excellent. Let us in at 5:00pm for dinner than off to our seats in section 126

Great venue for Ice Hockey, College hoops and Concerts / shows. Attended Stanley final and definetely one of loudest venues in league. Additionally, nice location for big company meetings as F@B options are very good.

We've attended a number of events here from hockey games to concerts. The arena is well kept and clean. The food is pretty good, albeit expensive like most arenas. Be prepared with cash for parking. It's always painful to dish out $15-20 when you've already paid so much for tickets.
