PNC Arena reviews
I have been here for a hurricane game and a monster truck rally. Both were great experiences. Parking is $20 and it is a cashless arena.

The Loge Box at PNC Arena provides excellent customer service! My dad’s job provided us with tickets to an NC State game and the staff was extremely helpful in guiding us and making sure we were comfortable as that was our first time. The bartender in our box was very nice and made sure we had everything we needed. He made us feel like we were old friends. If anyone wants to have a perfect basketball viewing experience, the Loge Box at PNC Arena is a great choice! I’m looking forward to going back!
Access and Parking for the handicapped is excellent but if your going to a concert you better already have accessible seats if you need them. Our tickets were bought 2 years ago and at that time I didn't need them. They were willing to swap out the seat but it would have split our party up leaving me without assistance if I needed it. The show had been sold out for some time and they had sold most of the accessible seats to the general public by the time the Tour made it to Raleigh. The seating isles are tight and the stairs are steep making it impossible to get to my seat. Fortunately one of the ladies working the door made room for my wheel chair in the walkway next to other temporary seats and still stay fairly close to my party. In the end the show was incredible and a great time was had by all.
