For those living in Singapore, lucky you, because HBO Asia is giving fans a chance to delve into the world of the Seven Kingdoms when the “Game of Thrones” exhibition kicks off this weekend.
“The Game of Thrones Experience: Worlds of Westeros” event is set to take place at Basement 4 of ION Orchard, starting from 2nd April (Saturday) to 7th April (Thursday) 2016, between 10am to 10pm daily. And best of all? The admission is free!
Fans and followers of the “Game of Thrones” series will get the chance to relish their fandom with various interactive activities and displays including:
- Actual weapon prop displays from the “Game of Thrones” set, including Brienne’s sword Oathkeeper, Arya Stark’s sword Needle, Ned Stark’s Ice and the sword of a White Walker.
- Photo opportunities with the life-size Iron Throne replica and Daenerys Targaryen’s dragon, Drogon, against a green screen.
- An exhibit of the series’ original storyboards and concept art.
- “Game of Thrones: Ascend the Wall” an Oculus Rift powered virtual reality experience that will bring you 700-foot up the icy wall of Castle Black.
For the very first time in Asia, visitors will get a first-hand experience of virtual reality through the “Game of Thrones: Ascend the Wall” activity. It’s a 4D immersive entertainment experience powered by Oculus Rift, where “Ascend the Wall” takes the visitors into the show and on a journey to the top of the 700-foot ice Wall as seen in the HBO series.
