I recently attended a New Jersey Devils game. There must have been only 7000 people there. I was on my own and things were so bad that a scalper gave me a free ticket. Take transit as parking is $20. Tallboy beers were a little pricey at 12 bucks. It was a nice arena though and even the seats up... More

Once you are inside the arena, it's very nice and well done. But getting here is horrible. There are no highways that have direct access to the arena. Parking is terrible, and expensive.

The 22nd NHL arena I've visited, the Prudential Center is a pretty good one. Good sightlines, modern facilities, the staff members I met were pretty friendly and it feels pretty clean and comfortable. It would have been nice had there been some historical displays, but all in all it's a good arena.

Best way to get there is take the train into Newark station then walk through the building in between the station and the stadium. You'll get there faster, don't have to deal with the weather much...

We visited Prudential Center a few times recently, once to see the Siberian Orchestra and last week to see a Devils hockey game which they unfortunately lost. We had a great time though because our grandkids got to play an exhibition game for five minutes during intermission. It was very exciting for them and for us. The arena is beautiful... More
