Are you a Game of Thrones fan? Game of Thrones® The Exhibition, presented by HBO Canada, is a free, five-day, ticket event from May 14–18, 2014 at TIFF Bell Lightbox in Toronto. The exhibition will feature original artifacts from the series and the new Oculus Rift virtual experience entitled “Ascend the Wall.”
The Oculus Rift interactive experience entitled “Ascend the Wall” will allow fans to get inside a replica of the Night’s Watch elevator while using the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset, headphones, and 4D elements. Fans will then be transported to the Northern border of the Seven Kingdoms, offering a glimpse into Westeros.
In addition, visitors will be able to see costumes, crowns, jewellery, props, armour, and weapons from the series, artifacts such as model dragons and eggs; and books, letters, maps, house banners and storyboards.
Fans will also have an opportunity to have their photo taken on the Iron Throne.
