  • 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 »
  • 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.
  • PNC Arena is perfect! Well, close. Clean! Security was everywhere but not imposing on the excitement. The staff!! Any business should take note....the staff were all well informed and knew answers to questions. I don't go to events often so $ for concessions was a surprise. Bottle water $5!? I made do with wine. Keep up the outstanding job!
  • As arenas go it good. The food, facilities and staff are great. The leg room is a deal breaker. I'm not freakish tall, only 6'4", but the leg room means my knees jam against the chair and person in front.
  • Great venue. Parking is expensive, but finally this year they can take cards instead of just cash! Just be aware that a water bottle will run you $5.50 and the food prices just go up from there. The ushers are helpful and kind and even my ticket checker was friendly.
  • Me , my son and his friend was there to watch Disney on ice: dare to dream. It was amazing though only a two hour show. But you have to remember to carry plenty of money with you. The parking was $20 and to get food was as high as another $20 per person with also toys you can buy. This is something we will do again
