As well as blood-sucking footage, attendees will also be able to sample The Strain Transformation Station - which sounds like the coolest thing ever conceived. Basically, if all the vampy action gets a bit much, you can relax by taking 20-minute power naps inside custom-built Rejuvenation Pods which show footage of the show.

Here are the details:

“The Strain” Transformation Station

- Appointments may also be booked ahead of time through this custom mobile site
