College Football Hall of Fame for Families

If you are of the mindset that the College Football Hall of Fame is only for the die hard fan, you are so wrong!  It is for the every type of football fan and is VERY family friendly.  I honestly believe that it will soon become an attraction as exciting for the kids to go to as any other in downtown Atlanta. Here is a cheat sheet of what you need to know if you are going to the Hall of Fame with children.

THE ALL ACCESS PASS:

The All Access Pass is absolutely amazing. It truly is another reminder of how far technology has come. Your ticket comes equipped with an RFID, essentially a microchip that emits who you are and where you are in the Hall. When you purchase your ticket, you sign in with an email address and your favorite team. As you venture through the exhibits, many of them will customize to your team as you walk by.  For example, when you are in the Quad looking at the Helmet Wall, your team’s helmet lights up…and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. If you are a house divided, no problem. Each family member gets to choose their team! At the end of your visit, you can access all of your customized material from home and share it with your friends or on social media.

FUMBLES:

Fumbles is the big furry mascot of the College Football Hall of Fame. He has goal posts for his ears and is very friendly. When you see him, make sure you stop and get a picture taken!

INTERACTIVE EXHIBITS:

Get ready! This is where you will spend the majority of your visit.

First, you have the 52 ft. interactive board. When you walk by it, your team will pop up with plays, pictures and game highlights that are updated every week.

Next, make your way over to the interactive face painting area. When you arrive, your team colors and logos will pop up on the screen, as well as a picture of you. You can digitally paint your face as the ultimate fan!

Interactive Paint Your Face at College Football Hall of Fame

If you are daring, head on over to the area where you can sing your school’s fight song. It certainly is a different feel than singing with 100,000 of your closest friends at an actual game, but it’s a close second!

Who doesn’t love ESPN’s College Game Day?? Sit at the desk and broadcast about your favorite team. At the end, watch your mascot end up on your head!

As you head over to the interactive game that looks like an air hockey table, take a look at the cartoons on the wall that are of famous coaches and their favorite sayings.

There is an area where you can try to get your team to the National Championship by making them do drills, get enough rest, recruiting and several other activities. Young children might need a bit of help with this, but the older kids will LOVE it!

THE PLAYING FIELD:

The entire Hall is built around a 45 yard football field where you can interact and see yourself on the jumbotron. When you run through the tunnel to get on the field, be sure to check out some of the best traditions in all of college football like touching the rock at Clemson, patting the Play Like a Champion sign at Notre Dame or holding hands in brotherhood at Michigan. You can try kicking a field goal through the goal posts or attempt to throw a touchdown pass! The kids will really love getting a feel for what it might be like to play on a real football field!

GAME DAY THEATER:

Make sure you check the schedule to see when this 10 minute movie is playing in the Game Day Theatre. It will pump you and your family up for upcoming games. Even if your kids aren’t into football but they play team sports, they will appreciate this movie.

RESTROOMS:

There  are restrooms conveniently located on all floors throughout the building.
