Away from the hustle and bustle of the show floor, you’ll approach a mysterious overgrown facade before entering the expansive pathways of Summoner’s Rift itself. The Riftwalk will take you on an immersive, interactive journey and showcase some of the brightest moments and personalities from League’s rich community history. You’ll enjoy photo ops astride legendary locations from the Rift itself, as well as busts, concept art, and cinematics highlighting League's evolution. Finally, amidst celebrations of seminal community content, you’ll have the chance to meet some of the contributors themselves!

We’ve also teamed up with the folks at Stoopid Buddy Stoodios and 4 itchy Tasty! Cosplay to build what’s quite simply the most badass Thresh experience ever conceived. You’ll have the dubious privilege of meeting the Chain Warden in full 12-foot ghostly form and, should you master your fear, taking a photo that places you inside his lantern!

Speaking of badass, it wouldn’t be PAX without the reveal of a new, larger-than-life statue produced by master creature artist Steve Wang, the guy behind previous Ryze, Katarina, and Ziggs statues, as well as the Annie & Tibbers who command the lobby here at Riot Games. His latest creation will feature Lucian in the midst of an epic duel as he continues his quest to purify Runeterra of the undead and cleanse the souls of the Shadow Isles.


The Riftwalk will feature work by:

You’ll also have the chance to get to personally get to know Rioters involved in all sorts of League development:

  • Mike Maurino (Champion Update) | Sunny Pandita (Skins) | Brian Feeney (Game Designer) | August Browning (Champion Designer) | Colt Hallam (Champion Lead) | Brad Wenban (Sr. Game Designer) | Jess Frucht (Creator Support Program) | Matt Dunn (Narrative)

And if you’re not headed to Boston, fear not! We’re so excited about this experience that we couldn’t possibly keep it to just one city - stay tuned for details later in the year as the Riftwalk experience travels to further events around North America.
