Adult Swim panels and activities at San Diego Comic-Con 2018

adult swim on the greek state park

Adult Swim is stepping it up this year at San Diego Comic-Con with panels and crazier fan events. How crazy are we talking about? Well, you will have to be 18 or older to enter Adult Swim on the Green, aka Adult Swim State Park. There will be night events, signings and panels featuring talent from your favorite shows like Robot Chicken, The Venture Bros. FLCL and Dream Cor LLC. The park entrance is free for fans 18+ and is located behind the convention center at 5th Avenue Landing and Convention Way from Thursday to Sunday. Night programming goes from Thursday to Saturday.

Fans will get to check out games like canoe races and archery contests, chainsaw-wielding wood carvers, merit badges, and food from the hot dog roaster. To get the collectible merit badges, campers will need to make the most of their park experience. Simply keep an out for Badge Badger and Star Farm brand ambassadors, who will be awarding badges for campers who are prepared. For example, if you have sunscreen or are hydrated.

There’s also the Camp Store for exclusive Adult Swim merchandise, but you must have an SDCC badge to purchase.

 

At night, the Nighttime on the Green will be the place to watch the latest episodes and pilots from Adult Swim, eat at the S’mores Station, and get access to special talent.

The Rickmobile will also make an appearance all week long.

Also, check out the Adult Swim panels and signings. You can see the schedule below.
