If you have a chance to see an event here, do so. Beautiful facility!! Marble inlays, leather seating. TV's everywhere, never miss anything going on. Come just for the tour. Parties, weddings, etc. can be catered here as well.

Incredible facility. If not attending a Fighting Sioux hockey game, take the tour or at least visit the Sioux Shop. Has to be the best facility of its kind in the US.

Went to the Ralph Friday at 13:30 hrs for the daily tour. A lady who could be your grandma gave us a great tour of this marvelous facility. We were very interested in how Mr. Englestad built this building and all of the quality materials that went into making it, what a great place for hockey.

you have to go see something here. The marble is absolutely phenomenal. The building, as you approach, is a beautiful brick structure that cost a lot of money to build. Take some time to see the inside.

I have been going to games at the Ralph since I was a toddler. The new rink is first class. Always clean, easy to navigate and so fun to experience!
