  • Hockey is my sport of choice and PNC arena is a great place to see a hockey game, especially when it is near capacity, which, sadly it has not been in a while. The new owner seems intent on filling se...  more »
  • First time at this arena today for Marvel Live. Very nice arena..lots of food and merchandise available. Easy to get to off I40. Parking $20 was a bit much for a 2 hour event. Walkways were cluttered ...  more »
  • We've been going to shows (TSO primarily) at the PNC since it opened. The venue is really nice, well run, the staff is friendly, and they do a great job getting you into the place (even with security ...  more »

  • Pretty nice arena that is home to Carolina Hurricanes in hockey and NC State basketball. Hosts concerts and other events outside of those. Becoming a little dated at this point but still nice facilities. I think it works better for hockey than basketball. Concessions are pretty good with a good number of options including some smaller stands that have some really good stuff. Parking is usually not to bad, but I always feel like egress could be done better.
  • Really fun time to see professional hockey at a great price. Good accommodation for handicapped parking. Confessions varied, with gluten free options and tasting local brews. Easy access from the highway. Friendly staff!
  • Love it!!! Went to see the Monster Jam Monster Truck event. My nephew loved it and he already looking forward to next year event. He also wants to go back to see Journey and Eagles concert. Some way some how he is a 80's music lover. So, I'm sure we will be back pretty soon.
  • Save money on parking. Instead of paying the $20 per car to park in the arena's parking..park across the street by the horse arena for free. Takes about 6-7 minutes to walk to the entrance of the arena. Must quicker to drive there and walk versus taking forever to get parked in the regular areas. Get back in your car and u are immediately heading home. No long lines trying to just get out of the arena's parking lot...
  • First time here and was really surprised at how well it was put together. Very nice place to watch a NHL game. Was in town for the holidays and happened that the Hurricanes had a home game. Was able to get seats at a very reasonable price compared to other stadiums we have visited, and on game day also. Very helpful staff led us to our seats. Nice selection from the concession stands. Really recommend a visit if you are in town. I will be back again when I visit next time.
