It’s a wrap on New York Comic Con! We hope you were able to check out Team FANDOM’s coverage: from a preview of the upcoming blockbuster Pacific Rim 2 to fan favorite panels like The Walking Dead and Star Trek Discovery. And of course, all the fantastic cosplay!

But NYCC also has fun experiences for the fans. We checked out some of the best activations at the Javits Center.

Jigsaw Escape Room

Tied to the release of the upcoming horror film Jigsaw, this escape room experience put fans face-to-face with actors dressed as Billy the Puppet (the creepy white-faced doll). The film — the latest in the Saw franchise — opens October 27.

FANDOM’s Sharon Kehoe screamed so much that she actually lost her voice!

War For the Planet of the Apes Motion Capture Simulation

In one of the more interesting activations at New York Comic Con, FOX paired up with special effects company WETA to recreate a chase scene from War For the Planet of the Apes, out on digital October 10 and Blu-ray/4K Ultra HD on October 24.

Fans got to don WETA’s motion-capture gear and transform into Caesar as he is chased by other apes on horseback.

FANDOM’s Lawrence Yee actually lasted on the horse gimble longer than most, but hit a branch and fell off.

Nissin Cup Noodles’ Noods Before Dark

The Highline Ballroom was transformed into an exclusive party hosted by Tyler Posey. The Teen Wolf heartthrob and guests were able to customize their Cup Noodles instant ramen cups (both original and Very Veggie versions) and get their #slurpface on.

Since we were in Manhattan, we had to ask Tyler about the 15th anniversary of the romcom Maid in Manhattan. Check out his favorite memory, below:

XBox One X’s Drop Zone

Joel McHale previewed Doritos and Mountain Dew’s upcoming XBox One X Drop Zone event, where fans can participate in an augmented reality capture-the-flag game to win their own XBox One X. The event will take place November 10 weekend in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and San Francisco. Fans can visit to learn more.

Check out the hilarious interview to see what type of gamer the comedian/actor is, and be sure to stick until the end.

Hang Like Spider-Man Activation

To celebrate the 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD release of Spider-Man Homecoming on October 17, fans were treated to a recreation of Peter Parker’s bedroom from the movie — with everything upside down.

FANDOM’s Jack DeVries got a chance to talk to Spidey’s bestie Ned to learn more about the inspiration behind the scene-stealing character.
