The "X" is without parallel for viewing a hockey game. We enjoyed the Wild store and all of the great easy to access concessions. I needed a handicapped seat due to surgery and the guest services people were helpful and knowledgeable.

The seats are very comfortable and the concessions are right behind you and there are ample well appointed restrooms.

The X hosts many events including concerts which also provide great site lines and accoustics.

Took our 3 year old to see Disney on Ice and she loved it. The arena is big and seating was easy to get to. There is tons of parking located near the arena with prices for a $5 fee. Great area and easy to get to from the highway.

We've sat in a variety of sections and levels - there really is not a bad seat in the stadium. Our favorite seats are on the Club level, but would not complain about any of them.

This is a great venue, we always love coming here. I would have liked more options for mobility impaired guests who don't necessarily need a wheelchair accessible location, but we worked with what you had. Thanks!

Elton John was FABULOUS!! Almost three hours of pure entertainment. We went early & ate at the restaurant (Bud Light fan zone) inside the Xcel, the food wasn't anything to write home about. The tomato soup was was packed with basil and cold. The french fries were cold, no cheese on the bacon cheeseburger. We just wanted something to warm us up on a cold night, didn't happen. I wouldn't reccommend eating here to anyone.
As far as the arena, we had front row seats from the floor, folding chairs, the space was so compact it was like sardines being packed in a can. The seating was terrible!!!!! Come on, people need there own personal space, it was okay when we were standing, but who wants to stand for almost three hours straight. I would have left an hour into it because we were so UNCOMFORTABLE, but it was Elton John ; ) Next time we take in an event we will eat at an outside venue and I guess put up with the seating.
