HBO appears to be plotting a lifetime of profits from “Game Of Thrones.” Not only is a spin-off in the works, but now several attractions in Northern Ireland where the show was filmed will be available to fans. These locations will provide gorgeous sights that will allow fans to get close to the sets where the show was shot, featuring iconic spots such as Castle Black, Winterfell, and Kings Landing.
Page Six reports that HBO plans on having these parks ready by 2019. Referred to as “Game Of Thrones Legacy,” these attractions will feature visits to different sets and tours through Linen Mill Studios, where guests will see important pieces from the show such as wardrobe, art files, models, and other production materials, while also learning more about the behind the scenes process.
“HBO is thrilled to celebrate the work of the ‘Game of Thrones’ creative team and crew by preserving these locations and inviting fans to visit Northern Ireland and explore Westeros in person,” said Jeff Peters, HBO’s VP of licensing and retail. “The opportunity to celebrate Northern Ireland’s pivotal role in the life and legacy of the show and share its culture, beauty and warmth is also a huge inspiration behind these Legacy projects.”
HBO has already made several attractions for “Game Of Thrones,” including the Game Of Thrones Live Concert Experience and the Game Of Thrones Touring Exhibition. A spot with attractions and the official locations of the show will surely prove to be very profitable and could even become a long term theme park.
