    NBC 7's Danielle Radin shows you all the fun and free events you can go to outside the convention center if you don't have a ticket to Comic-Con this year. (Published Thursday, July 20, 2017)

    If you didn't get a ticket to the convention center at Comic-Con 2017, don't worry. There are plenty of things to do in the Gaslamp District outside.

    NBC has a special automation booth based on a new show premiering Monday called Midnight Texas.

    The booth is free to enter and is located next to the Tin Fish restaurant on Sixth Avenue.

    Inside the exhibit, witches, werewolves and other supernatural beings come to life as holograms, thanks to augmented reality. The spooky feature might have a long line, but it's worth the wait.

    There is also a pinball lounge in the Marriott Hotel, where anyone can come and play Star Wars themed pinball games for free.

    At the Omni Hotel, virtual reality has taken over. There are plenty of booths on the second floor of the hotel featuring virtual reality headsets, virtual driving courses, and a green screen with a trampoline, where programmers can turn you into a video game character.   

    And then of course, there is people watching. Wonder Woman is a popular costume this year after the popular movie recently released.
