Comic-Con's outdoor events help to draw some of the more than 125,000 attendees away from the crowded exhibit hall.
Each year Comic-Con expands its footprint in downtown San Diego. These outdoor events — some requiring a badge, others open to the public — help to draw some of the more than 125,000 attendees away from the crowded exhibit hall.
On Thursday, some lines for these outdoor activities seemed to be generating more people and interest than the convention halls.
At the Assassin's Creed Experience, attendees could make a "leap of faith" off a small tower or run though an obstacle course inspired by the Ubisoft video game Assassin's Creed.
Fox set up a zip-line over a miniature Gotham City to promote its new series Gotham.
And over by Petco Park, visitors could get behind the wheel of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Pizza Thrower vehicle from Paramount Pictures and Pizza Hut.
There were also gaming lounges inside, away from the heat. But high temperatures didn't stop people from running around wearing layers of leather, latex and fur.
