This year’s Super Bowl Experience, based in the Tampa Bay area, will be a little different. The week, often one of the most interactive and social in the NFL calendar might be downsized, but the league is still working hard to provide attractions and events for fans, including the support of the NFL OnePass app.
As the first team to ever earn the right to play the game in their home stadium, the Super Bowl experience for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will undoubtedly be one to remember. Despite fan restrictions, Tom Brady and company will be surrounded by Buccaneers fans and the city is sure to be in a party atmosphere.
The NFL Super Bowl Experience Theme Park
The Super Bowl Experience, the NFL’s interactive football theme park, will be returning for Super Bowl LV. The park aims to provide fans with free entertainment away from Raymond James Stadium. Thus, it will be the central hub for fan events around the big game.
Unfortunately, all reservations for the park have been filled and there are no plans to increase the number of places.
Fans who have secured a spot will have plenty of activities to choose from, including:
- Virtual meet and greet with NFL players and legends
- Photos with the Vince Lombardi Trophy
- NFL Shop with merchandise
- Super Bowl rings from all 54 previous games
- Opportunity to compete with players in a virtual 40-yard dash and vertical jump
The NFL is keen to encourage fans unable to secure a reservation to head down to the Tampa Riverwalk. As a result, there will be additional events for those looking to soak up the Super Bowl Experience atmosphere.
The park is open Jan 29 – Jan 31 and Feb 3 – Feb 6. More information, including opening times, can be found on the NFL website.
How to register for the NFL OnePass app
Fans who are attending the Super Bowl Experience at Julian B. Lane Park in Tampa will need to register for NFL OnePass app.
