This is such a fun place to watch a hockey game! Great food and beverage options that aren't super expensive.

Events are typically expensive - but the cost of parking is a form of robbery in my opinion. Parking in Saint Paul is a nightmare to begin with and I do my best to not have to do anything in Saint Paul any longer. I live in the suburbs - I'm NOT a native to Minnesota, and I honestly hope... More

The arena is a great place to see an NHL game at. This is he home arena for the Minnesota Wild. The sight lines are good and atmosphere for hockey is very good and fans are kind. For concerts, the acoustics are good and sight lines are good.

Great venue, would have rated this the top rating; except, we went to a hockey game and 19,507 were in attendance and the rest rooms seemed sized for a small house party. The beer sales compared to restroom ratio is off, as it is in most stadiums.

The schedule of events here is varied and busy. The home ice of the Minnesota Wild NHL team can be loud with such a competitive team. The concerts include many popular artists like Adele and Blake Shelton. Parking is easy to find both in garages and on street lots.

The Excel is a convenient and accessible venue. You can save a bundle by purchasing your tickets at their box office and skip the ticket master fees. You can pull up to the box office and run in to get your tickets quickly. If a show or event is not sold out, you can buy tickets the same day and... More
