The Vegas Golden Knights have reached the playoffs for the second season in a row! Whether you have tickets to attend the playoffs or just want to be in the middle of the action, you can join in the celebration before and after the game. Here are some important details to make sure you have an enjoyable playoffs experience.
Know Before You Go
Event pricing for parking will be enforced 4 hours prior to puck drop. We strongly encourage you to prepay for parking to guarantee your spot. The official parking garages for VGK games are at New York-New York, Park MGM, Excalibur, Aria, and MGM Grand. The option to buy prepaid parking cuts off 7 hours before puck drop. M life members with Pearl status and above will have parking subject to availability on playoff game days. Beat the traffic by arriving early. Stay late and allow roads to clear after the game before getting on the road. Consider alternative modes of transportation- RTC bus, rideshare, taxis or Las Vegas monorail.
Golden Knights Express
The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) operates four Golden Knights Express routes on home games that provide non-stop service to the T-Mobile Arena from the Summerlin, Henderson, Centennial and Southwest areas. Exact cash fare of $2 each is needed or tickets can be purchased via the rideRTC app. All routes pick and drop off on Frank Sinatra Drive. From there, it is a short walk to the arena. After the game, each route departs the arena approximately 20 minutes and 30 minutes after the game ends.
MGM Resorts and Uber have teamed up to help you get the most of your day with designated pick-up and drop-off locations at MGM Resorts destinations. Simply open the app, request, and meet the driver. On game days, picks ups are located at the northwest Excalibur® Hotel & Casino lot. Fans will be able to walk under the Tropicana bridge on Frank Sinatra to the designated lot. The walk is about 4.5 minutes long. If it is the first time using Uber, the first ride is free up to $20 with code MLIFE. * US only. Valid for new Uber users only. Up to $20 USD off your first trip. Expires 12/31/2019. Additional information on the promo offer terms and condition can be viewed here. **

Beerhaus in the Park is the official pre-game destination and it is where the party is at before, during, and after the game. Watch the game while enjoying cold brews and classic beer hall bites, play hockey themed games and enjoy Vegas Golden Knights specialty drinks. You can also catch the hockey action at New York-New York Hotel and at Park MGM Las Vegas.
