I went to school at UND years ago and finally made it back to bring my two kiddos to a game. Loved seeing how well everything is being taken care of, looked as new as the year it opened.

The Engelstad is amazing. Beautiful arena, not a bad seat in the house. It will always be the home of the Fighting Sioux!

The Ralph is a beautiful facility for all of their sports activities. The vendors have great food but the prices are not cheap. But that is to be expected at an arena event.

The seats are totally uncomfortable especially what you pay for a season ticket holder. Parking sucks, and taking a bus from a bar isn't great either because when it is 20 below and you have to wait outside to get on a bus you freeze. The food and beer is WAYYYY over priced.

Has aged well since our last visit. Tour is less inclusive as well. Our first time through, we were able to see more of the UND hockey team's facilities.

If you get the chance, come see the "Ralph". The Sioux Indian head painted or etched in marble is cool, Also the bronze statue of an Indian on a horse is very interesting. The Fighting Hawks Hockey is also fun to watch.

We lucked into some weekend tickets. Everything was great! Security getting in was very nice and friendly. The band before the game was excellent. The Sioux Shop had many goodies we had to take home. We found the 'good' beer vendor and it was great!! Everyone had wonderful seats. I love the Ralph, plenty of bathrooms and plenty of vendors... More
