I just saw my first NHL game in 33 years and what a wonderful experience it was! The trip in and out were facilitated by the easy highway access, and inside the arena itself the views of the action were great and the seating comfortable. If you are lucky enough to call Raleigh home - set yourself up with season... More

Fun family night watching the Hurricanes. Easy in and out from the parking lot. Fun games for the kids between periods.

Most of the events I have been to are NC State or the Hurricanes so I have to say they do a really great job to create a fun, family and nice atmosphere inside and outside the stadium. It is one of the few venues in hockey that has such a nice and open way for you to tailgate during... More

I got to catch the Carolina Hurricanes play the Sabres the other night , and I had a blast. The Sound system sounded great , the place wasn't too overly crowded. Beers and food weren't cheap but thats expected when going to sporting events. You know you're going to have to spend an arm and a leg if you want... More

We went to see the Bruins play the tropical storms while in town. The arena is nice with easy parking and decent food. Our seats were up in the 300 level. We went up there to our seats and there was no food vendors open on that level. They had signs that said because of the low attendance they weren't... More

So what if the Hurricanes aren't the best, because they are rocking it at home! Sight lines are great from just about anywhere. Audio-visual is major league. Concessions are a tad high, but not too bad. Parking for $15 though? Pretty confident my taxpayer dollars helped fund the place...

Leg room is so bad it's like you are in a old theater somewhere. If Yitzhak are over 6 feet tall it is still horrible experience.

Easy parking, we'll lit. $15 Parking fee. A lot of concession booths selling mostly the same things. Very expensive. Bottled water: $5, Pretzel $5, small square pizza $7 (looks like a poptart), cup of fries $5, cold Nacho chips with fake cheese $7. Eat before you go. Cannot bring in outside food and drinks. Bag checks & metal detectors before... More

We are season ticket holders to NC State basketball, so we visit the PNC regularly. Thanks to the Carolina Hurricanes, the PNC has great AV with nice audio and an impressive center court/ice HD scoreboard. The arena now host two ribbon boards that are used for ads and provide valuable data during games. The PNC offers a good variety of... More

Went to see an NC State basketball game at PNC. The arena is amazing, very clean and modern. For a college basketball arena is has a pro arena feel. I hope to get to a game next year as well.
