This should be one of your destinations if you come to Grand Forks. Just simply the view and dedication put into this building is a great look. The rich heritage of the University of North Dakota and its hockey program has been well preserved here. Not to mention the additional add on buildings and improvements over the years. A must...

Attended a hockey game over the weekend. As always parking, vendors, Sioux Hockey Shop, building and the game were outstanding! Everything about the building itself is impeccable. Certainly a tribute to the native Americans - especially the Sioux and their proud traditions. Too bad in America the many bow down to the few. We will certainly attend many more events... More

This is a great place to see a concert or go to a hockey game. The nosebleed seats were fabulous and I felt like I was close to the stage. Parking wasn't great and traffic was a nightmare but it was worth it to be in this arena!

I laughed when people said this is a must see, but it truely was. A very impressive arena that puts most NHL rinks to shame. The staff was so friendly and went out of their way to help during the recent synchronized skating competition.

We were able to explore the entire building except for locker rooms. This place looks and smells with hockey history. it is beautiful, seats are comfortable, they have 2 bars... More

This was the venue for the 2017 Midwestern regional synchronized skating competition and the Pacific coast synchronized skating competition. What a fantastic complex this was for this purpose. The facility is beautiful and comfortable and parking was plentiful. While the Olympic rink is adequate as a practice facility, there was not enough seating during the competitions. It would have been... More

We went to the arena for the Eric Church concert in January. It was spotless around the whole place and the amount of security and police there was unreal. Very well organized and professional arena.

This arena is something to see. It is the most impressive college facility I've ever seen for sports. Would love to go back just for the atmosphere.
