“Awesome Venue”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

We recently had the opportunity to attend a Pittsburgh Penguins game at the Consol Energy Center and it was amazing. The building is bright, clean and well organized. The staff is excellent - friendly and helpful. The crowd was well behaved and also very friendly. One of the best facilities I have ever visited!

“Awesome!”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

Very easy to get to. They have a wonderfully efficient process for getting folks out of the center quickly once the event is over. Go Pens!

“Great arena for hockey”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

Visiting Pittsburgh for two Penguins games, we had the opportunity to take in one game from upstairs and one game from 6 rows off the ice. Sight lines in both cases were great. The arena is clean, the staff helpful. Plenty of food and rink choices. ?The lines for the bathrooms upstairs can get overwhelming, not as bad in the lower bowl. Prices for food and beer are pretty standard for an arena, nothing cheap but nothing outrageously expensive. It's also great when the Pens win both games by shut-outs, leaving is always more enjoyable!

“Great View”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

Great venue for any event- hockey, circus, or Elmo. Every seat in the house seems to have a good view and parking is directly across the street. Food is okay- smaller events only have certain venders open with your basic junk food- chicken fingers, pizza, popcorn, etc.

“Beautiful arena and entertainment facility!”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

I have been to several concerts and hockey games at the Consol Energy Center. The amenities are beautiful and staff very helpful! The seats are very comfortable. I am 5'11" and most seats make you feel really cramped. These do not. The fun activities (mock player's bench, Kid's Corner, and giant goalie mask, etc.) are beyond any other arena that I have been to - my family and I love the arena!
