I am lucky to have gotten corp seating, otherwise we would not have been able to go - decent seats are ridiculous, no wonder the average family can't enjoy sport events - just ridiculous. Food was really good, and getting in & out of the arena was easier then I anticipated. If I get corp tickets again, I will go... More

Great concert venue! Good variety of food choices, plenty of rest rooms. Best seats in the house are the VIP boxes. They have servers who bring food & beverages to you . If you prefer liquor, it's the only way to go, as this venue has a special area where you can buy mixed drinks & they have to be... More

Beautiful, well maintained building with good food -- pricey of course. Parking is expensive -- $8-$20 depending on the event but parking is well orchestrated by the Raleigh Police Dept on the streets and PNC inside the gates. Easy in and out. Been there for hockey, basketball and concerts. Never disappointed. Alcohol at some events -- not NCAA basketball.

Always love watching hockey here. Had a great time. Went to the New Years eve game and enjoyed the atmosphere. Parking could have been easier.

Saw NCSU play Basketball there last season. Clean, plenty of room and clearly a big step up from the old stadium on campus ... We had cheaper tickets and the view was fine !

I've been going to this arena for the past 15 years or so that it's been open and I've never had a bad experience here before. Parking is obviously dodgy and you should expect to pay about $10 or so to park close by.

A nice arena for watching NHL hockey ( GO CANES!), college basketball and concerts. Fairly good selection of local beers and typical selection of arena style foods. A little more expensive than it should be but no more than most arenas. Parking is a bit expensive, $15-20 for most events, especially since the arena is not in downtown. Not much... More

I've been here several times for concerts and sporting events. Concert sound/quality is pretty descent for an indoor arena although I have normally been pretty centrally located to the stage to try and get the best sound quality possible. Food/Drink prices are about what you would expect at an arena of this size. I would suggest eating before you go... More
