Mostly all of the game day festivities were great. All the pregame entertainment, and intermissions were very cool. Unfortunately, the long lines at the concessions and the restrooms were a complete downer. In addition, the major flaw of the event was when tickets became available the layout of where the rink was going to be located, was not the final location. I chose my tickets the day they were available to have a great view down low at the rink based on the location from the previous hockey game at Fenway Park. They decided to move the rink completely in the outfield parallel along the green monster. Now my seats were further away than even thought of. It would’ve been better to buy lesser tickets up higher up in the park for a better view. That major flaw in addition to the bathroom and concession problems, I mentioned earlier kept this from being a great experience. This was my sixth outdoor game and my third winter classic that I attended. With that in mind, I am quite aware of an outdoor games, capabilities and drawbacks.

The Seattle Kraken will host the 2024 Discover NHL Winter Classic at T-Mobile Park on Jan. 1, 2024, against the Vegas Golden Knights.
The first NHL outdoor game in Seattle will pit the two most recent NHL additions against each other at the home of Major League Baseball's Seattle Mariners. T-Mobile Park will be the 14th venue and eighth baseball stadium to host the NHL's premier regular-season event since it started in 2008.
The Kraken are in their second season since joining the NHL as its 32nd team for the 2021-22 season. The Golden Knights are in their sixth season, having joined the League for 2017-18.
The Kraken will become the 29th NHL team to participate in a regular-season outdoor game and the first Pacific Division team to host the Winter Classic, which has never been played west of the Central time zone. It will be the second for the Golden Knights, who played the Colorado Avalanche in the 2021 NHL Outdoors at Lake Tahoe on Feb. 20, 2021.
This was our “big” family Christmas present this year and it did not disappoint. The whole event on the field was exceptional, and our seats in the upper level of Fenway Park gave us a great view of everything. The only draw back was the concessions. It seemed like the planners were poorly prepared for the size of the crowd. The lines were insanely long, and the food was mediocre at best and grossly overpriced. While we did not allow this to ruin our day by any means, that aspect of it was a definite disappointment. Overall it was a great experience.
Such an amazing experience, probably the coolest event I’ve been to thus far! Hope to go again some day!!
The winter classic was amazing! Tons of people and hard to get around but one of the best experiences we’ve had!
The venue was outstanding and the event was very well organized. So grateful being able to attend this game, and what a finish!!

The venue was amazing, the seats were perfect, the weather was perfect; but the score was not LOL 😂. The event was magnificent and worth every penny spent. Thank you to the NHL, Pittsburgh and Boston for a spectacular event! The only complaints were the bathrooms being shut down on the first floor and the vendors were very slow in serving food in the concourse; plus they ran out of food. Bostonians were complaining more than Pens fans LOL 😂
Apart from the score it was an awesome experience! Weather great. Bought a hot dog beer and peanuts and just soaked up Fenway. Puck drop with Bobbie Orr. Flyover. Boston Pops playing Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody and Pens playing their hearts out. All that and we found the entrance the Pens were using so we were able to see the Pens go in and out.
Was truly an amazing time!! Fenway Park, the Bruins, all that!! Amazing time!! Once in a life time experience!!
Boston is a phenomenal town, and the people were welcoming and fun. Fenway park is robust with classic beauty and rich history, for baseball. That being said, the stadium was not conducive to watch a hockey game. My seats were in F22 and you couldn’t see the ice or puck movent. If anything could have been different, those seats shouldn’t have been sold. Otherwise, the game was exciting and something that will always be remembered.
