FX Networks held one of our favorite offsites last year, with cool activations for their series – and this year is no different, with the network returning again to the Hilton Bayfront Park, where they’ll have groundbreaking activations and installations of fan-favorite shows Archer, American Horror Story, The Strain, It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, and Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll.
Although American Horror Story won’t be holding a panel at the convention, you can still feel like you’re part of the series with a special American Horror Story Fearless VR Experience, which lets fans become a part of their favorite show and test the boundaries of their own fear. To avoid waiting in long lines, fans can reserve a spot at AHSReservations.com, beginning July 19th.
In addition, there will be activations for The Strain, featuring a 25-foot “infected” Lady Liberty statue, a larger-than-life installation for Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll featuring smashed guitar with broken pieces several feet in size, and an FX Sculpture Garden, where fans can take advantage of social media worthy photo opportunities with iconic characters sculpted as busts including, Archer’s “Pam Poovey,” American Horror Story: Asylum’s White Nun, Man Seeking Woman’s Troll, The Strain’s “Quinlan,” Baskets’ Clown and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’s “Frank Reynolds” as the “troll” character from The Nightman Cometh.
It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia’s Paddy’s Pub will offer an escape from the heat providing water on tap for fans to stay cool throughout the day. A real bar will house the water taps and consumers will receive a branded collapsible cup to enjoy their drink. The FX Lounge will also be available throughout the day to provide shade and entertainment, where guests can rest their feet in seating inspired by some of the world’s most iconic chairs re-interpreted as notable props from various FX series, including the American Horror Story: Hotel Mattress as a Barcelona Bench and Archer’s Martini Olive as an Oliva Chair.
Then, on Saturday, July 23, FX will host a broadcast of Archer Live! at the FXHibition space as part of a special “silent disco” featuring light up headphones, setting the park aglow for a late night screening. The first 300 people who arrive will receive an Archer 4-in-1 blanket.
