Prudential Center, Newark

4.2
#1 of 8 in Things to do in Newark
When in Newark, Prudential Center is the place to go for a game of hockey or college basketball. Known as The Rock, the arena is home to the NHL's New Jersey Devils and the NCAA's Seton Hall Pirates. From the jerseys of high school teams to the Devils store and the outdoor plaza, you'll be constantly reminded that this is the hockey epicenter of New Jersey. The arena combines state-of-the art broadcasting technology and amenities, such as bars and restaurants, to give the fans a pleasurable game experience. In addition to sports, the center often hosts concerts and other live events. Depending on the event, the arena's capacity shifts between 16,500 and 19,500; the surrounding area provides enough parking spaces regardless.

  • Second time here to see the Devils {though not Devils fans} and the place is impressive with a good range of food inside and everything seems well organised. Picked up tickets with ease at the Will Ca...  more »
  • From Manhattan to the PATH train arrived at Penn Station in Newark then after a short walk we arrived at the Arena; already you could hear Pink Floyd in outdoor spaces. Always excellent organization of events and then without much code we witnessed a legendary concert by Roger Waters. Great day.

  • It's a great venue. I have been there three times. My only complaint is the lack of leg room for six footers 😣 The line of sight views are excellent. I just have to make sure going forward that I choose seating in the first row of a section or an aisle seat for more comfortable leg room!! The latest event was the Trans Siberian Orchestra...it was fabulous!😁
  • I've been here to see sports and concerts. It isn't a bad venue, just a typical one. The seats are good but the aisles are somewhat narrow. We have sat in all different sections, and I think that the views are good all around (even standing room areas). They have a nice selection of food and beer. Parking lots right outside are pricey, so try a lot two blocks away and pay half of what the close lots cost. Also, the train comes close so it is a great way to get there...
  • My wife and I went to see Trans-Siberian Orchestra. It was a great show with great site lines and sound system. But what really made it great was the light show and story line. The staff at the Prudential Center was very helpful and courteous to everyone. I can't wait to go back for more shows.
  • The Rock is a great place to watch a game or a concert. Also, the staff is exceedingly courteous, which is especially unique for a venue like this. My favorite story is when I took my 2 year old daughter to her first Devils game, and she was miserable because it was too loud. A Prudential Center Staff member asked how she was doing, and produced a pair of ear plugs when she heard my little girl wasn't enjoying herself. After that, my daughter had a great time!
  • Seton Hall University v Indiana to see my old coach Archie Miller. Go Hall! Great great venue! The beer is pricey at $11 per draft. Already prepared food tastes okay, but expensive at $15 for burger/fries. There are a whole row of restaurants outside this venue, so may be best to eat in advance. Sight lines are great from all seats. SHU has a great team this year 2017 - top24 in the early polls. Fun atmosphere, student band was on their game. Parking is $17 right next door. Kinda pricey. Downtown Newark is a pleasant surprise. Safe, cool architecture, nice boutique bars, history and accessible by 20 min train from NYC. Take a trip out!
