15 Free Off-site Events at Comic-Con 2014


Godzilla Interactive

Godzilla 2014 - Godzilla in San Francisco

Where: Lawn Behind Hall H

When: 7/23 - 7/27

At last year's Comic-Con, Legendary brought out a very cool exhibit called the Godzilla Experience to promote Gareth Edwards' monstrous reboot of the classic Japanese kaiju. It was slick, entertaining and gave visitors a brief glimpse of Godzilla. Even though the film has already left theaters, there's no reason to think the interactive display this year will be any different - it'll just be on a slightly smaller scale.

To promote the upcoming Blu-ray release of Godzilla, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will have a 24-foot-tall sculpture of the beast on display during the entire Con, along with a graffiti wall where people can draw their favorite Godzilla-inspired moments (there's no way THAT could turn inappropriate, right?).


Adult Swim - Fun House

Adult Swim Fun House

Where: Petco Park Interactive Zone

When: 7/24 - 7/26: 3 PM- 10 PM

The "animation after dark" portion of Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, is bringing back it's very popular Fun House to Comic-Con for a second year. It's essentially an inflatable bounce house/maze for adults with often inappropriate themes for children (much like the shows  aired on the network).

Because of its adult themes, the Fun House is only accessible to people over 18 in the evenings, and while it's free, a ticket is required to go inside. Those tickets can be picked up at noon in front of the castle each day, and are first come, first serve - so get in line early if you want to bounce around like an adult.

Once you clear the maze, you'll be given a free t-shirt and other Adult Swim branded goodies.


Adult Swim - Meatwad Dome

Adult Swim Meatwad Dome

Where: Petco Park Interactive Zone

When: 7/24 - 7/26: 3 PM - 10 PM

Making his inaugural appearance at Comic-Con this year is Meatwad from Aqua Teen Hunger Force in his very own interactive dome, setup directly next to the Adult Swim Fun House.

Just like the Fun House, you have to be over 18 to enter the Dome to allow Meatwad to "tenderize your brain holes." It's only open in the evenings and requires a ticket to enter, which are given out at noon.

The same t-shirt/prize packs given out at the Fun House await those lucky enough to survive all that brain hole manipulation.


The Blacklist Experience

The Blacklist - Red Reddington, Donald Ressler

Where: Tin Fish Restaurant

When: 7/24 - 7/27 (Unofficial)

The Blacklist presence at the 2013 Comic-Con was in the form of the big glass cube jail cell used to hold "Red" Reddington (James Spader) on display across from the Convention Center. After its highly successful freshman season, The Blacklist returns to the Con and is taking over a local restaurant (a common occurrence during the week).

Much like the actual Blacklist, not many details have been released, but patrons of the Tin Fish can take a photo of themselves (presumably with cardboard cast members or props from the show), collect various Blacklist promotional items and get the opportunity to get their names on the Blacklist as well.


Gotham Zipline and Police Car "Taxis"

Gotham - Title Card

Where: Between the Convention Center and Hilton Bay Front

When: 7/24 - 7/27 (Times Unknown)

It's safe to say that at one time or another just about every kid has daydreamed that they were Batman - fighting Joker, Catwoman and various other criminals while roaring around Gotham in the Batmobile and using all of the cool gadgets stored in the famous utility belt.

To promote their upcoming Gotham TV series, Fox is giving fans a chance to act like Batman - even if it's just for a few seconds. During the Con, head over to the space between the Convention Center and the Hilton Bay Front hotel to take a thrilling ride on a zipline through the city of Gotham.

And the end of their journey, participants will receive a commemorative SDCC Gotham badge and a photo to remind them of the day they were Batman (or at least pretended to be).

If ziplines aren't your thing, then be on the lookout for special taxis painted like Gotham City police cars. These "taxis" will take riders anywhere the Con is happening for free while they watch the Gotham trailer on special iPads.
