Vikings fans, here's your chance to experience the new $1 billion stadium experience.

The team and Van Wagner Sports & Entertainment have completed the Stadium Preview Center adjacent to the stadium’s construction site in downtown Minneapolis (now home to the hulk that was once the Metrodome). The space will be open to the public -- by appointment -- later this week.

The 7,500-square-foot Preview Center is located on the fifth floor of the 1010 Metrodome Square Building, 1010 South 7th St.

The interactive space is the largest ever built by an NFL team, according to the Vikings. It overlooks the stadium construction site and includes a "custom-filmed experiential player tunnel and Vikings locker room experience, two authentic suite build outs, a 24-seat Club seating section, 37 high-definition televisions and seven interactive kiosks," the team said in a news release.

The center also contains a 100:1 scale city-scape model and a 25:1 scale detailed architectural stadium model. Visitors will have the opportunity to see 360-degree panaromic views from 275 vantage points within the stadium.

“We believe the new stadium will provide the premier game-day experience in the NFL, and this Preview Center will help bring that into focus for Vikings fans,” said Vikings Vice President of Sales and Marketing and Chief Marketing Officer Steve LaCroix, in a statement.

The Vikings are currently contacting season ticket holders to arrange appointments, followed by those who are on the team's waiting list. Non-season ticket holders can sign up for the wait list or track developments on the stadium webside. For more information, look here.

The new stadium is slated to open July 2016.
