They call it the NFL Experience. From catching passes to fielding punts, visitors get a taste of what it's like to be in the big game.

"It's pretty awesome. I mean, it's geared toward kids, but there's a lot of fun stuff for everybody," Charlie Scott said.

Scott and his son are Ravens fans from Salisbury, Md. They drove to New Orleans, arriving Thursday morning.

"For the experience, you know, being around Ravens for the Super Bowl," Scott said.

Jennifer Shepherd is a longtime Ravens fan. Now, she's passing the tradition along to her son, Tyler.

"This is awesome. This is amazing. It's actually his birthday today. This is his birthday present," Jennifer said.

The massive New Orleans Convention Center is filled with displays and games. Fans can pose with the Super Bowl trophy and gawk at Super Bowl rings.

They can be timed in the 40 or even pretend to be a Raven.
