One of the most fun parts of visiting San Diego Comic Con is attending the increasingly impressive activations that studios bring out to the show for their most passionate fans. This year, Paramount+ decided to pull out all of the stops with interactive experiences featuring many of their hit shows and movies including Spongebob Squarepants, Transformers: Rise of the Beasts, Pet Semetary: Bloodlines, 1923, Yellowjackets, Ink Master and more.

Each show (or movie) had an activity section or bar, and it took the good part of half an hour to just take in each section, let alone participate in the activities available. Some of the activities included a photo opp at the Krusty Krab and with Pet Semetary: Bloodlines, a Tranformers-themed bar as well as a 1923 speakeasy, caricature drawing from the Star Trek section and temporary tattoos at the Ink Master area.

The Lodge is located at the Happy Does Bar at 340 Fifth Ave. It runs from Wednesday July 19, 6-10pm, Thursday July 20- Saturday July 22 12 noon - 10pm, Sunday July 23 10am- 7pm. The activity is free and you don't need a badge to participate, but you need a reservation. There will be a stand-by line daily if there are no reservations available.

Popverse saw it and did most of it, and you can find all about our guide to All the big news, magic, and moments from San Diego Comic-Con. And if you want to go to SDCC next year, we have the San Diego Comic-Con 2024 dates as well.
