It is absolutely impossible to see all of San Diego Comic-Con. The Exhibit Hall alone offers thousands of things to see and do and that’s in addition to all the panels. Once you venture OUTSIDE of the Convention Center there’s even more to take in from free experiences, swag, activations, and so much more. We can’t possibly cover it all but here’s a look at some of the interesting sights and sounds that we encountered for the 2018 event!

Adult Swim State Park

Hot Dog Rides, Live Streams, Canoe Go Kart Races, Mini Golf, and Free Stuff were on tap at the always highly-anticipated activation for Adult Swim.
