Those long escalators to the upper level program rooms in the Convention Center lobby are not the only way to get upstairs! If you walk out the back of the Exhibit Hall in Hall B2 (see map below), you’ll find escalators, stairs, and an elevator that takes you up to the Mezzanine level of the center (and from there, to the top level with the programming rooms and the Sails Pavilion). The Mezzanine level features 5 different game rooms (check your onsite Events Guide—and our Games page here on the website, as we get closer to the event—for the complete schedule), plus an assortment of Fan Group tables. In addition, there are concession stands up there for food and beverages, and a nifty little seating area that looks out over Halls A through C of the Convention Center! This awe-inspiring overview of just half of the Comic-Con Exhibit Hall is a good place to relax and take (most!) of it all in. Make sure you visit the Mezzanine level while at Comic-Con 2013!
