I have been in quite a few sport events and this arena blows your mind away. Every bit is thought of and technically it represents the very high end of any sports. But that hasn't killed the atmosphere. On the contrary, the hockey event with Minnesota Wild game was amazing. Obviously good hockey, but the whole event was just so... More

I recently took my adult daughter to her first MN WILD Hockey game. It was her first experience at the Excel center. I like it because it's always clean. The people that work their are friendly. We found a parking lot just a block or so away from the center, parked for $10 and walked. Super easy location to find.... More

Great venue for hockey but plan on eating before you arrive. The food choices in the arena are poor and expensive and the service in the only restaurant on the main level is not consistent and choices are limited. We waited 30 minutes for service on Thursday, switched to another table and server and things improved. There are no drinking... More

I have been to this arena many times. The acoustics are the best big venue in the five state area. Its why Prince did his last MN tour stop here in 2004. I would say the only downside is convent on street parking. There is nothing close. Mass transit is recommended. The building is large yet intimate at the same... More

I attended a Minnesota Wild game it was a great experience. From finding parking (which) there was a ton of to choose from, to getting through security was easy. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The arena itself was easy to navigate through to find my seat. It's one of those arenas that I don't think there's a bad... More

Stopped in to see the Xcel Energy Center while visiting downtown St. Paul. The Wild were playing that night and hence the team was warming up on ice.It is a nice arena and has plenty of parking right across the street from the arena.

Attended a Minnesota WILD hockey game! It was fantastic! The seats were good, as was the food from arena. We've been there before and will definitely come again!
