Winter is coming, or should we say, it’s here! In the lead up to the massively anticipated eighth and final season of Game of Thrones (which premieres on the morning of April 15 in Hong Kong), Now E and HBO Go have joined forces to bring fans the first-ever GoT themed exhibition in Hong Kong. Staged at Cityplaza’s second-floor atrium and centre bridge between now and April 23, the exhibition features some exciting showcases including a life-sized replica of the Iron Throne and a six-metre-long installation of the ice dragon (or Viserion to you die-hard fans).
Once you’re done impersonating Joffrey on the Iron Throne or Daenerys Stormborn (First of Her Name, the Unburnt, Queen of the Andals and the First Men, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Breaker of Chains and Mother of Dragons) next to the 3,000-pound dragon installation, there are eight interactive zones worth checking out. There’s the AR White Walker photo booth, where visitors can take a pic in front of a green screen and see themselves turn into a freakishly blue-eyed White Walker, a photo-op wall with 13 of the most popular characters (see how much taller The Mountain is in real life), as well as tons of awesome GoT merch to shop for. We’re talking mugs with your favourite house sigil printed (Stark, Targaryen, Lannister or Greyjoy), character folders, sticks and even cushions. You can even take home a personalised Game of Thrones leather coster simply by Instagramming the exhibition with the required hashtags.
Who knows who will survive (if any) in the battle for the seven kingdoms and the White Walkers, so here’s something to Hodor to in the meantime.
