Ever fancied standing on top of The Wall above Castle Black? If so, it’s time to dust off your Night’s Watch cloak and get ready: Westeros is coming. And it’s free!
HBO has announced that Game of Thrones: The Exhibition (#GOTExhibit) will be back for 2015 with even more fun stuff for fans to enjoy.
Right now, it’s been confirmed that the 2015 touring exhibition tour will stop off at seven cities — London, Stockholm, Tel Aviv, Madrid, Berlin, Amsterdam and Paris — but more cities may be added at a later date. Presented by HBO and its international partners, Game of Thrones: The Exhibition will feature all-new installations focusing on key places, characters and relationships from Season 4 of the worldwide hit.
New for 2015: fans can pledge their allegiance to their favourite Game of Thrones family by joining a House before entering the exhibition and having their photo taken on the Iron Throne.
Organisers promise an unprecedented, immersive Game of Thrones experience courtesy of the “Ascend the Wall” 4D Oculus Rift virtual reality experience. Back by popular demand this Night’s Watch experience allows fans to ascend the 700ft Wall by stepping into a physical recreation of the Castle Black winch elevator while wearing the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset and a pair of headphones. From that moment on, they’ll find themselves inside a virtual version of the elevator — one that looks, sounds and feels extremely real.
Let’s hope there aren’t any White Walkers waiting for them at the top.
In addition, a new integrated web-based companion and photo stations will provide exciting new ways for fans to interact within the exhibition, placing them inside some of Game of Thrones’ most shocking and talked-about moments.
Game of Thrones: The Exhibition will also display original artefacts used on set from Seasons 1-4 plus some never-before-seen pieces from Season 5, which premieres in April 2015. Created by artisans whose extraordinary craftsmanship has lent authenticity to the show since its inception, the collection includes costumes, model dragons, House banners, armour, weapons and costumes.
Excited much? The 2015 tour kicks off at the O2 in London on 9-12 and 15-17 February. Tickets are up for grabs on 26 January from Sky: www.sky.com/gameofthrones.
