A Must-See Attraction Outside Comic-Con: ‘The Experience' Near Petco Park

You don't need a Comic-Con badge to check out this new exhibit

If you cross the bridge from the San Diego Convention Center and head towards Petco Park, you are in for a treat this year during Comic-Con. 

"The Experience" is an interactive, 20-booth attraction featuring everything from Marvel and DC Comics to "Ghostbusters" and "Jurassic Park." 

The exhibit starts Thursday and will run until Sunday. It is put on by Granddesign Media with the help of the San Diego Padres. 

"We're transforming a three-acre blacktop lot at the Lexus Premier Lot," said Christie Decker of Granddesign Media. "We'll have food trucks, a beer garden and a lounge for VIPs along with activations." 

Guests will have the opportunity to go through a "Sacred Lies" themed escape room, or get a photo opportunity hooked up to harnesses in an activation for "Cloaks and Daggers." 

NBC 7 will also have a booth in the attraction, so stop by and say hello! Attendees can take photos with the popular "Jurassic Park" Jeep Wrangler.  

It's free to get in, and those with Comic-Con badges will get special VIP treatment. 

Downtown San Diego will be fully alive on the first day of Comic-Con Thursday. 

There are a lot of other exhibits outside the convention center all over the Gaslamp Quarter and downtown. Click here to see the full list.
