NFL Experience Times Square

NFL Experience Times Square

When you’re a fan of American Football, like the New York teams the New York Jets and New York Giants, you should definitely visit the NFL Experience. The NFL Experience on Times Square, an attraction entirely dedicated to American Football. The aim of the experience is to ensure you “enter as a fan, become a player and leave a champion”. In conclusion, it’s an interactive attraction where visitors can experience American Football in a variety of hands-on ways.

The NFL Experience has closed. I recommend you to visit the Madison Square Garden All Access Tour instead.

American Football attraction

A visit to the four-storey NFL Experience begins as you take the escalator up to the top floor. Here, in the theatre, with images projected in front of and next to you, while you sit on moving chairs you can follow the players throughout the season and experience other surprises along the way. Continuing on and down through the other floors, there are a number of activities. Put your own football skills to the test, see how high you can jump, compare the size of your hands to those of a player, and test your talent for throwing a football. In addition, through the use of the latest technology, you can try on the player’s kits and much more!

The NFL Experience is a truly hands-on experience for football fans. Immerse yourself in the game, its players and the competition. Do you have the potential to develop from a player at the beginning of the season, to the winner of the Super Bowl? Here’s your chance. If your visit has given you an appetite, you can finish it with a bite to eat at the in-house café, NFLX Eats. Try some ‘stadium inspired cuisine’ to the round-up your experience! If you want to complete the journey, you should definitely buy tickets to a real game. See the schedule of sports games in New York for available games.

Eric’s Tip: The NFL Experience is a nice attraction for everyone that wants to know more about American Football. In addition, the interactive elements make it a fun place for children, even if they (or you) don’t know anything about the sport. It’s generally quieter before noon, so, to avoid the crowds, I recommend planning your visit during the morning.
