Have you ever wanted to go to South Park? Were you disappointed when you got to the real South Park, Colorado and realized the town wasn't inhabited by transgendered school teachers, bloodthirsty mutant turkeys, and Tina Yothers? This year's Comic-Con may be able to make up for having to voluntarily visit rural Colorado.
The "South Park Ultimate Fan Experience" has recreated the iconic downtown square from the long-running animated Comedy Central show in a vacant parking lot just outside the convention center's building. The event is free and open to the public and doesn't require any passes to experience it.
The 15,000 square foot experience also features a museum of South Park-inspired artwork and memorabilia from the show's history including the original construction paper cutouts from the original season's episodes and the Gwenth Paltrow dress that Matt Stone wore to the Oscars in 2000. Fans can also pick up their own bag of Cheesy Poofs from the cafeteria, take part in a Cheesy Poof theme song singing contest, and check out an unedited screening of South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut.
