Many negative comments about the security. Unfortunately, this is only reflective of our lamentable times. We are sadly not going back to simpler days folks. Guarda did a respectable job of getting the cattle through the gates. Took the tub of beer and that came in at a cool $17, my spouse took the sink and that was $12. Nachos + Popcorn and there goes $45. The tickets were given to me and I would never actually purchase any myself to go to a game. Simply find that kids skating around does not warrant that much salary. Great steep rake seating which almost guarantees unobstructed views regardless of height. Base of seat to knee clearance a little on the tight side. Egress from venue quite good, can't concur same for parking or exodus from downtown. Conclusively no particular yearning to go back for awhile. 20190123: Was invited to a loge. Thankfully we had a wonderful group of chatty people in a posh loge. Never sat for a minute to watch the game. Saw bits and parts on the screen since the conversation with guests in the loge area was far more interesting than the kids in the rink. Hellish getting to downtown, $25 for exterior parking during an ice storm. Hell to get out. Why in God's name would anyone pay to put themselves through such a mockery is beyond me. Viva Laval and the West Island.

Great venue for both sport and concerts seat are roomy and some what comfortable. But very crowded when you leave. Also very accessible by public transport. With the food was better priced

As a hockey game first timer I had a lot of fun at Centre Bell. The place is huge and we stayed in one of the loges. The indications to get to the loges could be better, but nothing that make me feel lost or something. There where a lot of interactions with the cloud and multiple gift giving. It is indeed a show to be watched. Also, Montreal won!
