Warning: Minor spoilers ahead for "Westworld" season two.

"Westworld" fans got a chance to explore the dusty streets of Sweetwater at the SXSW festival.

HBO created an entire theme park set in the American frontier, where "Westworld" fans could experience what it's like to be a guest of the show's park. Actors playing the townspeople lived out elaborate storylines, and visitors interacted with them.

The network spent the last four months refurbishing a real-life ghost town in Austin, Texas, into the sci-fi Western park, complete with gunslingers, fake prostitutes, and booze - lots of it.

Guests who paid close attention may have uncovered several Easter eggs in the experience.
