With the only Division I hockey team in the state, the University of North Dakota boasts a magnificent $100+ million arena. The 400,000-square-foot, five-story arena with seating for 11,406 is truly the envy of the NCAA. The main lobby area has ticket sales, a pro shop and complete "Sioux Tradition" museum. The arena hosts family shows, concerts, ice events and Fighting Hawks Hockey. The Betty Engelstad Sioux Center, a 50,000-square-foot expansion to Ralph Engelstad Arena, houses four regulation-size practice volleyball and basketball courts, which can be converted into one main game court. Tours are available Monday through Friday at 1:30 p.m. Please call for reservations, 701-777-6636. The fee is $7/adult and $5/senior.
