The tour will kick off in Europe, with the first location to be announced soon. That's when you're reminded that Westeros isn't an ideal vacation spot for anyone who enjoys keeping their head attached.
Fans are transported to the center of the Seven Kingdoms for an up-close and personal look at authentic props, costumes and set decorations from the show.
You're about to get your chance. That thing's probably super uncomfortable anyway.
With Martin still toiling away on the latest book in the series, the show has sped past where the novels left off, leaving all fans-book readers and show watchers alike-completely in the dark about where the story will go. According to a press release, GES is building a 10,000-square-foot experience that will include immersive spaces and interactive elements to make visitors feel like they're walking through one of their favorite fictional worlds.
In addition to the Seven Kingdoms, the exhibition will feature settings from across the Narrow Sea in Essos, such as the House of Black and White where Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) trained to become a face-changing assassin, and the Targaryen-ruled city of Meereen. A partnership between HBO Global Licensing and GES Events, the upcoming Game of Thrones exhibition is being billed as "the largest public display" of the show's world and production realities to date, and the details certainly speak to that idea. Starting in fall 2017, an official Game of Thrones exhibition will be touring worldwide.
