The Lexus lot across the street from Petco Park is getting transformed into the Comic-Con Interactive Zone, slated to hold up to 20 activations centered around different shows and games.
Preview night for the Lexus lot is set for Wednesday. The best part is visitors won't need to pay or have a Comic-Con badge to get inside.
“What’s nice about this parking lot is that people will be able to do large activations, kind of like what’s behind us -- it's 46 feet and you wouldn’t be able to do it on the showroom floor,” said Jaclyn Lash, senior manager for special events with the Padres.
One of the largest activations is a nearly 50-foot blow-up Snoopy Doghouse, which will allow visitors to tour an interactive zone inside, as well as take a ride down a massive slide.
Across the lot, crews are installing an outdoor ride for the new FOX show, “Scream Queen.”
“Its 120 feet. You go up the ride and you drop down, so we will be hearing a lot of screams coming out of here,” said Lash.
Visitors can also look out for various food trucks and an Alienware video gaming zone.
