The end of the first season of west world opened up the possibilities for the series to explore the world beyond the Old West. After Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) kills Ford (Sir Anthony Hopkins) and initiates a revolution among the hosts, chaos wipes all Delos Destinations properties. so far, west world has provided details on seven different parks that exist within the show’s canon. The fourth season recently introduced a mysterious new location known as the “Golden Age” park.
The multiple parks inside west world are inspired by the original source material. The original 1973 film based on Michael Crichton‘s novel introduces both “Medievalworld” and “Romanworld.” The 1976 sequel Future world added a futuristic park to the equation, as well as a more relaxing ‘Spaworld’.
While each of the parks poses different dangers to potential guests, longtime players in the game may have been able to pick up on the recurring archetypes, storylines, and survival solutions. west world takes pleasure in satirizing the unoriginality of the Delos writers. In the second season, Maeve (Dear Newton,) even the writer Lee Sizemore (Simon Quarterman) for reusing her story. This comes in favor of Maeve in the fourth season. She and Caleb (Aaron Paul) can survive the Golden Age because they already know most of the storylines.
Each park presents its own unique set of challenges. Here are all Delos Parks in west worldclassified according to the hazards they pose.
7. Fantasy world
HBOs west world didn’t introduce ‘Medievalworld’, but it did reveal a medieval location in the season episode ‘The Winter Line’. Game of Thrones show runners David Benioff and DB Weiss appear in a funny cameo as two of the technicians working in the park. They seem to be working on a version of Drogon. although west world‘s showrunners Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy had previously ruled out Game of Thrones parks, Benioff and Weiss said George RR Martin gave them his blessing. There are no specific Game of Thrones elements that are canon. If we learned anything from the last two seasons of Game of Thrones, it is that Benioff and Weiss will undoubtedly introduce deus ex machina moments. Despite the presence of Drogon, FantasyWorld is probably the easiest to survive in.
6. The Raj
Willems (Ed Harris) daughter, Grace (Katja Herbers), is introduced in the show during her stay at Delos’ sixth park, “The Raj.” The Raj is inspired by the European rule of India and seems to take place during the rule of the English Crown between 1858 and 1947. While this seems to be one of Delos’ more relaxing parks, Grace learns that anything can happen when the hosts are released. She fights for her survival when she is nearly beaten to death by a hungry Bengal tiger. While the tigers certainly add a sense of danger, there don’t seem to be any human hosts that are particularly dangerous. Emily and her treacherous guide, Ganju (Sean Mann).
5. Golden Age
If there is a recurring theme in the work of Michael CrichtonIt’s that people don’t seem to learn from their mistakes. In the fourth season of west worldDelos Destinations is still open another new park. The new venue is modeled after the Prohibition era in 1920s Chicago, complete with jazz clubs, early cars, and petty mobsters. HBO is always excited to honor their other legacy shows; if we have a Game of Thrones-like park, then we deserved a Boardwalk Empire also a? However, the Golden Age is not all it seems; it’s apparently the first step in Dolores/Charlotte Hale’s (Tessa Thompson) plan for world domination.
The Golden Age has a secret level below the main park, where the events of the Dolores Revolution inspired their own level of the game. However, the rest of the park doesn’t even try to reinvent the outdated original patterns, allowing Maeve and Caleb to easily escape potentially dangerous mobsters. Perhaps the Golden Age will eventually end higher based on what’s revealed about Hale’s plot in the rest of the new season.
4. Shgun World
The second park is certainly one of the most action-packed destinations among the Delos properties, and it’s not just dangerous for the guests. Maeve, Sizemore and Hector (Rodrigo Santoro) are barely able to survive their encounter with the ruthless shoguns who roam the recreation of feudal Japan. It’s a nice tribute to the history of similarities between classic samurai and western movies; Akira Kurosowa‘s seven samurai inspired The beautiful sevenand Kurosowas jojimbo inspired Sergio Leone‘s A handful of dollars.
Apparently these similarities are something that Lee Sizemore was very well aware of, as he shamelessly reuses the Westworld stories in the Edo period. All guests who have visited the Westworld park should be able to find their way around Shōgunworld and see all the traps coming. Maeve happens to be in danger because she thinks of her own daughter when she sees a similar relationship between Akane (Rinko Kikuchi) and Sakura (Kiki Sukezane).
3. World of War
Of all the attractions in Delos, “Warworld” seems to be the least enjoyable as a real holiday destination. Sure, you can find adventure in the Old West or learn chivalry from the world of feudal Japan, but who wants to place themselves in Italy’s fascist occupation during the end of World War II? The imitation of 1940s battles is particularly brutal, and the Nazi officer Sauer (Christian Stamm) seems to be one of the most dangerous hosts in the park. It’s unclear why anyone would want to visit Warworld in the first place, and the more advanced weapons only make it more dangerous. According to Lee, Warworld is also close to both the original Westworld and the Forge, so it’s definitely the site of major activity within the west world canon.
2. Western World
While Warworld may be inherently more dangerous, the original Westworld is where Dolores’ first revolution began. As a result, the Westworld hosts are the most adept at killing people and have learned the most about human behavior. Westworld was the first park to be built and has evolved over time to become even more dangerous. Westworld attendees won’t be able to call for help either; the control room was taken over several times throughout the show.
1. Park Five (Military Contractors)
The mysterious “Park Five” is shrouded in secrecy, and apparently it’s so dangerous it’s not even designed for guests. As part of Delos’ military contracts, the fifth park is used as a combat simulation training facility. There are no known hosts designed specifically for the park, but Dolores reveals that some hosts from other parks have been brought in as potential “target audiences.” Based on Caleb’s flashbacks, it’s clear that the simulated combat isn’t a bull’s eye. Anyone trapped in Delos’s properties would be wise to avoid them altogether.
