Winter is here. Well, not really. Spring is here, and so is the “Game of Thrones” premiere. Fans have been waiting in anticipation for the eighth and final season of HBO’s epic series.

To celebrate, AT&T has launched an activation in Chicago at its flagship store. If you are a “Game of Thrones” fan, you will be excited to know that you will be able to fight White Walkers; see Arya Stark’s sword, Needle; sit on the Iron Throne; and have an opportunity to defeat the Night King. The original costumes and props from the show are on full display and will have any fan geeking out with pure joy.

Rolling out asked fan Sarah Gericke what she thought about the display at the AT&T store, her favorite character and her favorite part of the experience. “This experience has been super cool. Any fan of ‘Game of Thrones’ must come and see this,” she said. “My favorite part was being able to fight the White Walkers and my favorite character is Tyrion.”

The “Game of Thrones” display will be at the AT&T flagship store at 600 N. Michigan Ave. through the month of May. The season 8 premiere of “Game of Thrones” will air on HBO Sunday, April 14, 2019, at 9 p.m. Eastern/8 p.m. Central.
