Oct 10, 2014  •  Post A Comment

The fantasy continent Westeros, which is known to fans of the HBO series “Game of Thrones,” is the subject of an immersive museum experience that allows visitors to scale the Wall in a 4-D virtual reality experience, reports the Los Angeles Times’ Show Tracker.

“Game of Thrones: Ascend the Wall” is at the EMP Museum in Seattle, which describes itself as a museum “dedicated to the ideas and risk-taking that fuel contemporary popular culture.”

The exhibit places visitors at Castle Black, the headquarters for the Night’s Watch, and takes them on the elevator to the top of the Wall. The experience uses the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset and headphones, and it’s part of the museum’s “Fantasy: Worlds of Myth and Magic” exhibit. Other props and costumes from the HBO series are on display in the exhibit, which runs until January.
