Game of Thrones fans got their closest—and most intimate—look at the upcoming seventh season yet as part of an interactive pop-up display in Madrid.

HBO España—which airs Game of Thrones in Spain—set up the display, which included photo ops with the Iron Throne and a chance to “find winter” by stepping into an enclosed area. Participants who entered the room faced tough questions from Arya Stark.

“Do you want to see something you’ve never seen before?” Arya, dressed in winter clothes, asks the participants.

After making them promise not to tell, she shows them video that’s a mix of behind-the-scenes footage and scenes from Game of Thrones’ seventh season. Hidden cameras capture the audience’s reactions before Arya kicks them out.

While everything goes by quickly, we’re able to spot a few things. We appear to get our first glimpse at Jim Broadbent’s character, while Jon Snow, who is seen in much warmer attire, calls for the North to unite. Plenty of familiar faces resurface, and although the visual effects aren’t quite done, the battles are already looking epic.

Game of Thrones season 7 premieres July 16.
