Super Bowl Boulevard is opening up to fans from around the world Wednesday in Times Square.

Broadway between 34th and 47th Streets is shut down through Saturday thanks to endless activities including a Super Bowl Toboggan run.

The toboggan run is 60 feet high, 180 feet long and you can try it when it opens at noon.

We spoke with some of the stage hands who helped put this all together:

"Yesterday we lifted up the toboggan run and now we're just prepping it for everyone to jump on it. So we're just waxing it as we're going along so that it goes at the right speed for people to come down and have a good time,” said Daniel McManus, Local 1 stagehand.

“Yea it was fun. Everybody who comes here is going to have a great time using it,” said Sal Gaglio, Local 1 stagehand.

Most activities on Super Bowl Boulevard are free, but the toboggan will cost you $5 for a ride.

Super Bowl Boulevard is open from noon to 10 p.m. through Saturday.
