One of the National Football League's all-time-great brain children, the NFL Experience is like a humongous punt, pass, and kick competition for kids of all ages. This year marks the 17th annual presentation of "pro football's interactive theme park" and it will feature participatory games, displays, various clinics, free autograph sessions with NFL stars of the past and present and what's deemed as the largest football card show ever.
Football fans can measure themselves against the game's professionals in passing, field goal kicking and sprinting skill tests and wannabe broadcasters are invited to have a go at "Can You Call the Play-by-Play of some of the Most Exciting Moments in NFL History?"
Fans can test their mettle against the likes of this season's NFL MVP, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, in various skill challenges at the NFL Experience.
On the night of January 31 from 9pm to midnight, the event will transform itself into NFLX After Dark, an exclusively-for-adults opportunity to enjoy the theme park's attractions.
Proceeds from gate admissions will be donated toward the NFL's charitable efforts in Arizona, the Youth Education Town (YET Center).
