Tourist Spot
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.

  • I caught a Devil's game here whilst in NY and was not disappointed. The vibe of the Prudential Center is great and crowd really gets into the game. Worth the detour.  more »

  • Beautiful arena. Very easy to get to and nice inside. Temperature was well controlled, was expecting it to be colder (went to devil's game). Food was also delicious and was surprised with prices. Although not cheap by any means could have been much worse.
  • Pru Center is a nice venue. Saw a hockey game here and I had a great time. I think for concerts it's great because it's not so huge that you'd feel your miles away from the artist.
  • I am a die hard New Jersey Devils fan and i love coming to games here. I have a flex plan which you can choose the games you want to go to, where you want to sit, and how many tickets you want. They call it the what you want when you want it plan. It is easy to get to from where i live. Any seat is great except for the first 15 rows on the turn because the glass gets blurry but on weekdays you can usually move back or to the side. Food is great and the clerks are very kind people. Also the people who sell candy and water are the nicest people in the world. Also mainly all the Devils fans are nice. Parking is right across the street it is awesome. I suggest if you want to go to a hockey game go here it is the greatest arena in the tri state area
  • The arena is nice I have been here a few times. The VIP is excellent and spacious. I must say the only annoying and outrageous draw back is the taking my bottle top off my bottle after I paid 40 US Dollars for 2 orders of chicken tenders, a Pepsi, a water and a Coors light. The food and drinks are overly expensive like who do they think they are expensive. $5.00 water bottle and they keep my cap so while I carry my expensive food all the liquids can spills.
  • Things to note: - The Parking Garage charges $30! - Public transportation is easy to access, the walk from the Path, NJ Transit, Amtrak is only a 5 minute walk to the center - The bathrooms are surprisingly clean - There's a decent amount of food options, not just pizza and hot dogs - They DO search through bags but they didn't pat me down.... so.... - Facilities are clean - Seating is crazy, if you get vertigo or if you're tall be prepared lol There's isn't a whole lot of leg room
