  • I recently attended a Wild game with a good friend of mine who's in a wheelchair. I have to say that the accessibility services at the X were outstanding. It was a relative breeze getting through security, staff were super helpful in aiding us to find what we were looking for, and the wait staff on the club level at our handicap-accessible seating were world class. They greeted us right away after we got situated, took our food and drink order right then and there, and delivered our food to us. Fantastic service!
  • Just Saw Tool. Great venue for a concert. Excellent acoustics. Great for hockey games. Facilities are clean. Service is fast. A bit on the expensive side but that's expected at a concert or game.
  • Brought my parents to Game 5 of the 2017 Playoff Series with St. Louis. Sat them in the Audi on the Glass seats and let them hit the souvenir shop. Every staff member we encountered was helpful and courteous. The fans we sat near were awesome. The game...well we lost...however the experience wasn't wasted. In my opinion, the best place to take in an NHL game anywhere in the world.
  • Outstanding customer service. Always willing to assist the guest. If you have an issue, go to Guest Services and talk with a supervisor. They want to make your experience a good one.
  • Haven't been to the X for a while. Just saw Maiden. Awesome concert, great venue. You have plenty of options for bars and restaurants before the event. Great experience.
