Fans of HBO's "Game of Thrones" can step inside key moments of the beloved fantasy show in Astor Place this weekend.

An interactive, behind-the-scenes exhibition celebrating the release of the show's season 6 on DVD now surrounds the newly returned Alamo Cube in the plaza, and will be in place until 8 p.m. on Saturday, said HBO reps at the event's launch on Friday.

Aside from walking through a series of stations decked out with real props and costumes from the show, participants can stand in line to be photographed sitting on an iron throne and walk away with photos of themselves inserted in memorable scenes.

"It's really cool, and very well put together," marveled "Game of Thrones" fan Gabriella San Nicola. "I was walking by last night and there was nothing here, so they really threw it together in an incredible way."

San Nicola and fellow mega-fan Yuv Bharat Ram said they came from Murray Hill to check out the attraction, and got a photo together "holding the door" from one of season 6's most talked-about scenes.

"It was unexpected," said Ram of the scene, which led to the death of a beloved character. "That's what I like about the show — as soon as you fall in love with a character they kill them."

The attraction also includes Dothraki, Winterfell and Castle Black immersive exhibitions.

The event closes at 8 p.m. Friday night and will be open on Saturday from noon until 8 p.m. Participants should be in line no later than 7 p.m., said an HBO rep.
