AceShowbiz - Fans are given a special chance to visit the iconic town on "Westworld", quite literally. HBO is building a version of the town outside Austin, Texas, during the upcoming South by Southwest festival for three days in March.
The network announces the theme park through a 30-second promotional video. "No guidebook, no orientation, no regrets," the video teases.
The network has rented two acres of land outside Austin to build what is billed as a "Live Without Limits Weekend" experience. The "Westworld"-themed park features recreations of locations and elements from the hit HBO drama series, including The Coronado hotel and the Mariposa Saloon.
The guests will be taken to the location via a "Delos shuttle" after checking in. They later will be interviewed and evaluated to determine whether they will receive a black or white hat. After receiving the hat, the guests will be allowed to explore the recreated town of Sweetwater.
There will also be dozens of actors playing "hosts" a.k.a. the show's androids. While the androids won't be able to shoot and have sex with the guests, fans will be treated to various hints and Easter eggs about the upcoming sophomore season of "Westworld" throughout the theme park.
The rare experience will run from March 9 to March 11 and is said to last approximately two hours. To be able to visit the recreated town, attendees must be 21 years old or older and have a valid ID. As spots are limited, fans need to pre-register at DiscoverWestworld.com to get on the list.
As for the upcoming SXSW, series creators Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan are set to join the show's panel alongside a slew of cast members, including Evan Rachel Wood, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright and James Marsden, on March 10.
Season 2 of "Westworld" will arrive on April 22 on HBO.
