Always a fantastic venue to watch hockey. If your going to eat or enjoy a beverage come with plenty of money as it's a sport's venue that knows how to charge you. With that said there are lots of great choices.

I love the Ralph! Hockey games and concerts are always phenomenal! My friends and I always go to the home games and love that you have so much to offer such as food and drinks!

I went to school at UND years ago and finally made it back to bring my two kiddos to a game. Loved seeing how well everything is being taken care of, looked as new as the year it opened.

The Engelstad is amazing. Beautiful arena, not a bad seat in the house. It will always be the home of the Fighting Sioux!

The Ralph is a beautiful facility for all of their sports activities. The vendors have great food but the prices are not cheap. But that is to be expected at an arena event.

The seats are totally uncomfortable especially what you pay for a season ticket holder. Parking sucks, and taking a bus from a bar isn't great either because when it is 20 below and you have to wait outside to get on a bus you freeze. The food and beer is WAYYYY over priced.

Has aged well since our last visit. Tour is less inclusive as well. Our first time through, we were able to see more of the UND hockey team's facilities.
