Tickets go on sale Tuesday for the NFL’s Super Bowl Experience, which allows fans and future superstars to virtually “get under the helmet” and sample the sensation of gridiron greatness at the Minneapolis Convention Center.

The event is the NFL’s interactive theme park that dates back 25 years to the modest punt-pass-kick activity on Nicollet Mall during the Super Bowl in 1992 at the Metrodome.

Activities range from posing with the Lombardi Trophy to running routes and catching passes, plus youth clinics, autograph signings and celebrity appearances. The NFL’s massive Super Bowl shop selling game and team merchandise will be attached to the event.

NFL Senior Vice President of Events Peter O’Reilly calls the event “a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for fans to experience the unparalleled energy of Super Bowl Week.””

Tickets to the event, which runs from Jan. 27 to Feb. 3, go on sale at 10 a.m. Tuesday through Ticketmaster. Tickets are $35 for adults and $25 for children 12 and under. Tickets come with a designated entry time and date. Helpful hint to locals: Go earlier in the week because the event gets jammed in its final days.
