To this point I dont think that I have ever been to a nicer more well taken care of sports facility. The place is immaculate, a shrine for hockey and a place where you don;t ever want to leave. Great food, great viewing, great aesthetics.

UND fan or not, everyone needs to experience at least one hockey game at the Ralph Englestad Arena. This place is like no other. Don't forget to take the tour too!

Went to see a game for the first time since moving here a few weeks ago. Great place and atmosphere. Granite floors welcome guests in the front entrance. Seats were amazing and overall great experience. Can;t wait to go back.

We have actually attended a UND hockey game, which was fun, but we've also taken the tour of the rink - twice. It's a fascinating building, especially when you see the "behind the scenes" sections. Certainly no other hockey arena like this one!

My parents graduated from UND and recently went back to visit. They wanted to see the new arena. It was a beautiful building! We didn't see a live hockey game, but know it would be fantastic!
