What Visiting Hockey Fans Can Expect on Game Day in Las Vegas
Las Vegas is quickly becoming a hockey haven, pulling out all the stops to celebrate the home team. Guests visiting to watch the Knights take on their home team can enjoy unparalleled game-day experiences throughout the season. Here’s the ultimate play-by-play on how to do hockey on The Strip.
- Fan Frenzy - For three hours before each home game, an all-out fan-fest transforms The Park – the immersive, outdoor dining destination adjacent to T-Mobile Arena – into a hockey fanatic paradise with live music, hockey-themed interactive game play, pop-up bars, sign-making stations and more.
- Pre-Gaming Done Right - At every home game, The Park’s Beerhaus is giving visitors a little taste of home thanks to their themed specialty hot dogs, aptly named the “Underdog Special.” Beerhaus is also serving up a bit of Vegas’s best, hosting local breweries who offer hockey fans free samples of their craft brews.
- Before the Puck Drops - With one hour until face-off, fans can head to Toshiba Plaza – the large, outdoor space connecting The Park and T-Mobile Arena – to continue the fun with interactive experiences including puck shots and photo ops with Chance, Vegas Golden Knights’ Gila-monster mascot – all set to the tune of a live DJ.
- Get Hyped - Leading up to a Vegas Golden Knights’ home game, get in the zone thanks to the boombing beats of the “Knight Line” – a drum line leading the game-opening march from the neighboring New York-New York resort into the Arena, electrifying the night with a party procession. Throughout the game, fans can partake in activities and giveaways.
- Party Don’t Stop - The game might be over, but the fun doesn’t stop with the final buzzer. Fans can head back to The Park for the post-party – indulging in great brews and bites on the patios of Beerhaus, California Pizza Kitchen and sushi hotspot Sake Rok. With the presentation of a game ticket at Coyote Ugly at New York-New York, guests get a free shot, happy hour prices and game-day drink specials. And at Nine Fine Irishmen, guests can enjoy a variety of drink specials after the game both in the pub and at their Virtual Pub, located just steps away on Brooklyn Bridge. At Five50, the NYC-meets-Neapolitan pizza bar at ARIA, fans can chow down on pizza and beer specials during home and away games with buckets of beer for $25 and a slice-and-beer special for $10 at the counter.
- Relax Like a Pro - Guests can recover from the game-night celebrations by booking a relaxing spa experience at ESPA by Vdara. Designed with the Golden Knights in mind, the Vegas Knights Treatment combines a full-body salt scrub and a full-body hot-stone massage for a rejuvenating 110 minutes. Fans also can opt for the Power Play Massage, which uses special techniques to mobilize joints. They can even upgrade to the “Power Play Advantage,” which enhances the experience with selections like hot stones, reflex zones, muscle balm or a gold-collagen under-eye treatment.
