HBO’s “Westworld” arrived in Austin, Texas, for the SXSW film festival over the weekend and fans were delighted to see their very own park.   Yes, as we reported, HBO created an entire theme park set in the American frontier, where “Westworld” fans can experience what it’s like to be a guest of the sci-fi show’s park. Local actors playing the town’s residents live out elaborate storylines, and visitors interact with them like they’re AI hosts from the show.5aa53524c2320d1b008b47bf-750-500

It’s like Disney World’s Frontierland with gunslingers, prostitutes, and booze — lots of it.

A recreation of the sci-fi town of Sweetwater for the “‘Westworld’ Live Without Limits” experience at SXSW is the most sophisticated stunt that HBO has created since White Walkers arriving in the streets of London.

The network spent the last four months refurbishing a real-life ghost town in Austin into the sci-fi Western park.
