If you live in the Dallas area (and are a Cowboys Fan), you might want to check out the NFL Experience in the Dallas Convention Center before the crowds descend for the Super Bowl XLV.
According to the organizers, this upcoming weekend is for the locals to go and enjoy the 850,000 square feet of NFL exhibits and interactive games. Among all sorts of exhibits (including castings of NFL players’ arms), the Vince Lombardi Trophy itself will be on display, for the entire duration of the NFL Experience.
The trophy is brought into the Lombardi Lobby upon the opening of the event and it will stay there for fans to take pictures with until the event wraps up. Despite all the other attractions, the trophy is likely to garner more attention than anything else. Fans are expected to line up for an opportunity to have their pictures taken with the legendary and coveted symbol.
The interactive games and challenges are in the NFL Play 60 Game Zone, where fans will have the opportunity to attempt a field goal kick with regulation-sized goal posts, to throw and to tackle dummies among other things. Autograph sessions will be held each day too and it goes without saying that exclusive Super Bowl and NFL merchandize will be available every step of the way. If you’re on the hunt for an autograph, all you have to do is to stand in line for it.
There are no additional costs involved, although when the Super Bowl crowds arrive, you may find yourself willing to cough up a few bucks rather than to brave the queues that develop. Fans have probably gotten used to the fact that each year, something new pops up at the NFL Experience. This year, there will be a special memorabilia appraisal session on Saturday.
Another major attraction will be the display of the 44 Super Bowl rings. A huge crew of nearly 4,000 volunteers will be on hand to make sure everything runs smoothly.
