Sept. 29 (UPI) -- Former New York Giants Rashad Jennings and Justin Tuck were in New York Thursday to unveil a 4D virtual reality display of U.S. Bank Stadium.

Courtyard displayed its Ultra High-Tech 4D Virtual Reality Dome in the city's Flatiron District. The display transformed fans into the site of Super Bowl LII in Minnesota.

"It was definitely a cool experience," Tuck told UPI Thursday. "Getting the opportunity to somewhat experience what they are going to experience on a Sunday morning when they wake up in a Courtyard suite in U.S. Bank Stadium, it was pretty neat. The 4k visual that we got the opportunity to experience was kind of trippy, but it was definitely a good experience."

Thursday's event was free fo fans all day in New York. They could walk in and experience the sights and sounds of the Super Bowl with the help of a 360-degree wrap-around screen.

Tuck would know what it's like to wake up at the Super Bowl. He was a two-time champion with the Giants.

"Obviously real life experience is the best, but as far as something I've seen from a projection-type opportunity, this is a 4k projection going up in a kind of makeshift dome setting, I thought it was really well done. I thought it captured...from the point of view of watching the game live at the field, as great as I've ever seen. It was definitely something where, as a player, you don't get the opportunity to go back behind the scenes type of stuff that goes on because we are in the locker room, etc."

"Getting the opportunity to wake up on the field in your own makeshift Courtyard suite, it looked really interesting."

The hotel is also doing a Super Bowl contest where it will award a fan with two tickets to the game, free airfare and a sleepover at the U.S. Bank Stadium in a redesigned luxury suite.

The Super Bowl is the most-watched event in the United States, with 11.2 million watching last year, according to Neilsen.

Super Bowl LII is set for Feb. 4, 2018 in Minneapolis.
