    Whether you are "living a teenage dream" with Katy Perry or cheering on the Wild the X is what every arena hopes to become. Acoustics are great, atmosphere is great, size is great. Read more

    Beautiful-looking and clean arena. Lots of food choice too. Over-priced, but aren't all arenas?

    It's so incredibly expensive to eat or drink here- like all sports stadiums. Gets to be a little too much if you're money-conscious. Pregame and drink after. :)

    Head down to the Club Grill near the main doors on the first level for a nacho helmet. Five different kinds, most with chicken. Delicious!

    Minnesota is hockey heaven. If you’re not convinced of this fact, check out the jerseys from every single high school in Minnesota hanging on the concourse walls.

    Take a few minutes to walk around the arena to view the high school hockey jerseys that are proudly displayed on the suite level. These can also be viewed from the 100 level concourse.

    When you can, get Club Level seats. Better/healthier dining options, can run a tab at the bar and less crowded.

    The hot chocolate is really great. Brings me back to being a squirt and getting it out of an automatic vending machine at various hockey arenas around the state. Ah memories ...

    Check out the Xcel Energy Puck Wall near Section 124. You can still add your name to the wall if you would like! Stop by the Community Relations booth near that section for more information.

    For Wild games, the United Hospital lot parking is only $10 and you can sneak away from exit traffic jam by heading west on Grand up to Crocus Hill.
