HBO has announced that they will be building a “fully immersive, functional version” of the town of Sweetwater from their series Westworld for the 2018 South by Southwest Festival in Austin, Texas.
The re-production will include locations from the show like the Coronado hotel and the Mariposa Saloon. Those who register to check it out will be transported from downtown Austin to a location just outside the city where Westworld has been brought to life. From there they’ll be set free to explore, search for clues about the upcoming season two of the series, and even enjoy some food and drink fitting to the theme.
You can find all the information below, along with a teaser video for the SXSW experience, which may just be teasing a Roman World.

The South by Southwest Film Festival (SXSW) is just weeks away, and this will be my first year in attendance. I’ve heard the stories. It takes careful, strategic planning, patience, and above all fastidious punctuality to make it into the screenings you want to see. So, after pouring over the SXSW 2015 film lineup, I’ve zeroed in on 5 films I will see, coming hell or hipster stampede.
Here are my 5 Anticipated Movies of SXSW Film Festival 2015.
A new horror movie is set to make its world premiere at the South by Southwest film festival titled Honeymoon, and a teaser trailer for it has been released online.
