The Meatwad Full Dome Experience offers surreal visual ride for fans; Adult Swim Fun House returns with puzzling new rooms; Series Panels for fan favorite shows and new series.
This year at San Diego Comic-Con, Adult Swim will once again amaze and inspire fans inside and outside the convention center with an all new Adult Swim booth, unique fan experiences and celebrity filled signings and panels featuring series stars, creators and producers from the network’s most popular shows such as Robot Chicken, The Venture Bros., Childrens Hospital, and Rick and Morty. Adult Swim will also offer fans a first -look at their highly anticipated new series Mike Tyson Mysteries and the live-action series starring Triumph the Insult Comic Dog and Jack McBrayer. Adult Swim stars and creators on hand will include Mike Tyson, Aaron McGruder, Seth Green, Dan Harmon, Rob Corddry, Jackson Publick, Doc Hammer, Christy Karacas, and many more. Fans can also stop by the Adult Swim booth #3721 where they can dare to pay tribute to the Goddess of Luck and beg her to deliver a gift of unforeseeable importance. The King awaits to knight the true of heart while Jokers and Fools entertain their most ravenous fans. Come one, come all. Come wait in a line that may very well change your life (for better or worse).
Adult Swim will also have a major presence at the Petco Park parking lot across from the convention center starting at 3pm Thursday, July 24 through Saturday, July 26th. Named the #1 brand activation at last year’s convention by AdWeek, the Adult Swim Fun House will return for a second year of Robot Pumps and Spasm Chasms. Multiple challenges will force guests to crawl, slide, and sing their way to get through this giant castle. Don’t miss your chance to get publicly dumped.
Nestled next to the Fun House, the Meatwad Full Dome Experience will be making its debut at this year’s convention. This familiar fast-food friend will guide guests on a journey through a mind-fudging interdimensional-space-coaster-love-canal. We are breaking theoretical physics here. Once attendees successfully escape the Dome or Fun House, they will be treated to free, live screen printed t-shirts, photo opportunities, and get to watch as others attempt to break free of the castle. Free for all fans aged 18 and up, tickets will be distributed at the Fun House and the Dome daily starting at 12:00 p.m. and will be open Thursday, July 24 – Saturday, July 26 from 3:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m. each night. First Come, First Served. Savvy social fans who use Adult Swim’s official convention hashtag #adultswimSDCC will see their posts and their photos from the Fun House on AdultSwimPresents.com.
Adult Swim fan favorites Tim and Eric invite fans to their exclusive Jammy Party on Friday, July 25 for the world premiere of their new live action show Tim & Eric’s Bedtime Stories. PJ attire and RSVP required for entry. Adult Swim will also be hosting panels and events near the Fun House on Saturday, July 26.
