[UPDATE 2] Wondering just what a Meatwad Full Dome looks like? Our own Shawn “The Con Fluence” Marshall is on the ground in San Diego to offer you a first look:

[UPDATE 1] Adult Swim has announced some additional details about the “Meatwad Full Dome Experience” at Petco’s Interactive Zone:

Nestled next to the Fun House, the Meatwad Full Dome Experience will be making its debut at this year’s convention.  This familiar fast-food friend will guide guests on a journey through a mind-fudging interdimensional-space-coaster-love-canal. We are breaking theoretical physics here. Once attendees successfully escape the Dome or Fun House, they will be treated to free, live screen printed t-shirts, photo opportunities, and get to watch as others attempt to break free of the castle.  Free for all fans aged 18 and up, tickets will be distributed at the Fun House and the Dome daily starting at 12:00 p.m. and will be open Thursday, July 24 – Saturday, July 26 from 3:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m. each night. First Come, First Served. Savvy social fans who use Adult Swim’s official convention hashtag #adultswimSDCC will see their posts and their photos from the Fun House on AdultSwimPresents.com.

Additionally, it has released panel descriptions for all of its panels, including panelists:

[PREVIOUS] Adult Swim is back at Comic-Con with a jam-packed schedule of panels, signings, parties, and offsite experiences. The animation network revealed its Comic-Con plans on its website,which includes two offsite installations in the Interactive Zone at Petco Park, as well as talent and panel presentations from its series Children’s Hospital, The Venture Bros., Mike Tyson Mysteries, Robot Chicken, Rick and Morty, Black Jesus, and more.

The 5th Annual Adult Swim Panel Block continues on Friday, July 26, as the network takes over the Hilton Bayfront’s Indigo Ballroom for back-to-back panels. The only outlier in its offerings inside the convention center is Children’s Hospital, which will head to Room 25ABC a day earlier, on Thursday.

Here are the panels inside the convention center:

  • Children’s Hospital – Room 25ABC, Thursday 6PM-7PM
  • The Venture Bros – Indigo Ballroom, Friday 12:15PM-1PM
  • The Triumph/McBrayer Panel – Indigo Ballroom, Friday 1PM-1:45PM
  • Rick and Morty – Indigo Ballroom, Friday 1:45PM-2:30PM
  • Mike Tyson Mysteries – Indigo Ballroom, Friday 2:30PM-3:15PM
  • Robot Chicken – Indigo Ballroom, Friday 3:15PM-4PM

Fans can also find Adult Swim at their Booth #3721, where they will be giving out “mystery prizes”. Two of its series’ stars will be doing autograph signings at the Warner Bros. Booth (#4545), with Children’s Hospital set for Thursday at 4:45PM and Mike Tyson Mysteries holding its autograph session at 5PM on Friday. Tickets are required, and random drawings will be held in the Sails Pavilion each morning. Wondering how to gain access? Check out our guide.

Additionally, Adult Swim will be holding panels at the Interactive Zone at Petco Park. On Saturday, July 27, starting at 8PM, Adult Swim will offer offsite panels for Black Jesus, followed by an animation panel featuring upcoming series Superjail!, King Star King, and Mr. Pickles at 9. The event is 18+ and first-come, first-served, but a Comic-Con badge isn’t required to attend.

The network is also bringing back its popular Fun House offsite to the Interactive Zone, where attendees can run around an adult-only fun house. Tickets for the event are free, but distributed daily Thursday-Saturday beginning at 12PM, though the operating hours are from 3PM-10PM. Only those over the age of 18 can join in the fun.

New this year at the Interactive Zone, though, is the Meatwad Full Dome Experience. According to Adult Swim’s site, attendees are invited to “nestle into Meatwad’s vessel and allow him to tenderize your brain holes”. Sounds both painful, and exciting. Just as with the Fun House, the event is 18+, and requires a ticket distributed at 12PM to attend. It has the same operating hours as the Fun House.

Finally, attendees interested in partying it up with Adult Swim can RSVP, beginning July 16th, for Tim & Eric’s Bedtime Stories Jammy Party. The party will take place in, you guessed you, the Interactive Zone, on Friday evening from 11PM-12PM, but an RSVP and “PJ attire” is required for entry. Once inside, fans will get a first look at the new series, Tim & Eric’s Bedtime Stories.
