“Steep Stairs!”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

Quick access to the parkway after the game, but inside the arena be aware that the high seats have wickedly steep stairs.

“It's nice”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

My Penguins play there, other than that it's just like every other arena I have ever been to. The concessions are overpriced. Parking can be a pain, but if you know where to park and get there a little early it's not too bad.

Cleaner than the Civic Arena but it doesn't have the character that building had.

“Great place to see a show.”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

My wife and I came up for the night to see Dennis Miller. It was our first time to the new place. It is so much more beautiful than the Igloo ever was, and convenient to hotels. What I really liked was how easy it was to get back on the Parkway from here.

Consol is a very good venue to see a hockey game. Great sight lines and good concession selection. Last 2 times were in a luxury box, but general admission if very good as well.
