We could see everything but didn't feel like we were so far away we couldn't enjoy ourselves. The second night a friend... More

If you are a hockey fan and do not visit this place when you visit Grand Forks, you are missing out! I have never been on the tour, but as a current student at UND I have gone to many, many hockey games here. Hockey night is sacred to the student body. The arena lights up in full glory, students...

Great state of the art facility for hockey and basketball. Comfortable leather seating with individual cup holders. Lots of amenities. Acoustics for concerts not ideal but you can't beat the atmosphere. Good parking and always shuttles available.

Grand Forks is a Hockey Town and The Fighting Sioux are one of the best teams in the Nation. Plan a night or two and watch the finest hockey. Excitement throughout the evening.
