The Pro Bowl Experience is an interactive outdoor area where you can test your football skills and see how you stack up against your favorite players in activities such as the 40-yard dash, passing, catching, kicking and the vertical jump. Other immersive exhibits will take you straight into all of the Pro Bowl action and, throughout the week, catch your favorite players preparing for the big game during NFC and AFC practices.

Tickets for the Skills Showdown are available now.
