“Great arena, but TOO LOUD!!!”
Review of PNC Arena

PNC Arena

Reviewed March 6, 2013

Excellent views from everywhere, very clean, modern, and spacious. But, the sound makes your ears hurt and is about twice as loud as necessary, and my hearing isn't young hearing. TURN IT DOWN!!! Please.

We attended a Hurricanes Game, and after a difficult, expensive parking process and long walk to the door, my wife was stopped at security because she had a nook and my son's kindle in her purse. She had to walk back to the car (about 10 minutes away) because these items were not allowed in the building. Later it was explained that NO tablet type computers were allowed in the building because of their ability to record in HD. (Neither the Kindle nor nook have cameras, but it is a blanket policy.) Phones are still allowed. Hopefully this review will keep it from happening to someone else. I also recommend arriving at least an hour early to an event to avoid the massive slow moving lines to park. The game itself was fun, but such a bad experience at the arena, we won't go again any time soon.

Followed this Carolina Hurricanes team from Boston, to Springfield MA to Hartford and now Raleigh. This wonderful NHL arena has great sight lines and there is not a bad seat in the house. Having been to nearly 20 hockey arenas, this is the best!

Been to several presentations in this facility. Saw a hockey game...watched acrobats defy all belief and still felt like apart of the action.

This is a great arena to catch a hockey game. The home crowd is enthusiastic and friendly. Tickets are very reasonable. Parking was quick, close and affordable. Exit after the game was also very quick.
