If you have ever wondered what it is like to play in the National Football League, The Packers Experience gives you that chance.

Located in the concourse area of Lambeau Field, the event has 12 activities, which simulates NFL football drills.

"All the games are pretty sweet," said Seth Wooll, 18, of St. Louis, Mo. "It's a cool thing for the little kids to have something to do during training camp."

Children and adults of all ages can bounce on a moonwalk inside of a large Packers helmet, kick footballs through an inflatable upright, wear the shoulder pads and helmet of an official uniform and juke inflatable defenders before scoring touchdowns. Other games include a passing challenge and an obstacle course.

The Packers Experience is free and will be open from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. Monday-Saturday and 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m on Sundays until Wednesday, Aug. 24.

To accommodate Family Night, preseason home games and other Lambeau Field activities, the area will be closed on Aug. 5-6, 11-12, and 21.

The NFL holds a similar event at the Super Bowl each year, but the Packers are one of the select teams to host a free event at their training camp.

An adult or guardian must accompany all children 17-years-old and under.

The Packers marketing staff has received positive feedback from parents, who enjoy the benefits of a family-friendly activity while the Packers practice.

"It's entertainment we've created to add more value to training camp," said Packers marketing assistant Dave Westphal. "The kids love it."
