Any fans of Westworld out there? Sweetwater is finally here, exclusively brought to Asia by HBO, this event is only held in Malaysia and Singapore. Head out to Sunway Pyramid to participate in the Virtual Reality (VR) experience of Westworld.

Visitors will get the full Westworld vibe right after they put the VR gear on. The entire VR experience begins with an introduction by a white-suited host – just like any visitor would encounter as a guest starting their visit to Westworld at the Delos office, the corporation behind the futuristic Wild West themed park. Visitors would then be instructed to don the Virtual Reality goggles and headphones, entering an immersive and interactive experience!

Once in the Virtual Reality realm, guests are invited to select either a black or white hat, try on suitable outfits and pick their weapon of choice (in reality, a joystick with a trigger), before embarking on different virtual activities within Westworld such as practicing at a shooting range or getting involved in a shootout with Sheriff Pickett.

Date: 18th April to 29th April 2018

Venue: Blue Concourse, Sunway Pyramid

Westworld Virtual Reality Experience: Open to all visitors from Monday to Thursday, and exclusively to pre-registered Astro subscribers from Friday to Sunday.

This immersive Westworld experience event also features a range of Westworld-themed activities such as a Mechanical Bull, a Ring Toss Game, a video booth, and more!
