Where was Westworld filmed? Guide to ALL the Filming Locations

Posted by Ra Moon

The Westworld series is packed with spectacular filming locations, a great cast, and a good, sometimes confusing story, in which Westerns meets sci-fi.

The show stars Evan Rachel Wood, Ed Harris, James Marsden, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, Tessa Thompson, Anthony Hopkins, and in the third season introduced Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul.

Aaron Paul as Caleb Nichols

The plot is inspired by the 1973 film by Michael -Jurassic- Crichton of the same name, taking place in a near-future where robotics have developed to the point of reaching the borders where life begins.

In this context, a mysterious corporation offers holidays in an adult theme park where guests can be whomever they want, and take their darkest fantasies beyond limits.

Westworld Filming Locations

Westworld's first and second seasons were primarily filmed on a movie ranch in Santa Clarita, California. The Warner Bros Studios in Burbank were used for shooting interior scenes.

The vast beautiful landscapes that give the feeling of the classic Westerns are located in Utah and Arizona.

Season 3 expanded the universe of the series into the real world, incorporating new locations in Catalonia, Valencia, and Singapore.

Stay tuned for season 4 filming locations updates on this page!

The Westworld town of Las Mudas was filmed in the Mexican Village set of Veluzat Motion Picture Ranch in Santa Clarita. The Mexican and European Street of the Backlot of Universal Studios in California were also used for a few scenes.

Monument Valley railroad
Some riding scenes have background views from the world-famous Monument Valley on the Arizona-Utah border.

Shots of the great American outdoors, including the Colorado River, were filmed in Castle Valley and Fisher Valley near Moab (Utah).

Also, it is very peculiar the way that the team created some of the scenes of the train interior: The entire coach was mounted on the back of the trailer. Instead of using the old classic technique of filming moving vehicles by projecting the exterior in screens, the truck was driven back and forth on State Route 128 in Utah.


Delos Arrival Terminal and escalators
The Delos Arrival Terminal was filmed on the interior escalators of the Los Angeles Convention Center.

Also, some of the Delos Labs interior halls were shot in the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood.

  15. Valencia is not Catalonia, Valencia is the capital of another autonomous region. The exteriors of the third season were filmed in the city of science, to be exact, the office is inside the palace of music, and the outside is between the palace, L'emisferic (imax cinema) and the "humbracle".
