* PopCulturalOsmosis: The ''[[Series/TheSimpsons Simpsons]]'' episode "Itchy & Scratchy Land" is far more well-known by young people than this film, which it parodies. That is, when they don't assume it's a parody of Crichton's ''other'' story [[Literature/JurassicPark about a theme park breaking down]], only with robots instead of dinosaurs.

Added DiffLines:

* ComputerVirus: Present in UnbuiltTrope form--or alluded to, at least. The film never explains ''why'' the robots are malfunctioning, but the head programmer notes that that malfunctions are increasing in frequency and spreading throughout the three parks. After he uses the word "contagious", a more skeptical programmer shoots back "I must confess I find it difficult to believe in a disease of machinery."

* [[ImplacableMan Implacable Robot]]: The Gunslinger is more-or-less the predecessor to Film/TheTerminator in all but name.

Added DiffLines:

* RevealingHug: The eyes of the SexBot prostitute Peter's humping fly open in a creepy way when he's on top of her. It's the first sign that all is not well at the park.

* NaiveNewcomer: It's Peter's first visit to the park, and John winds up explaining a lot about the rules of Westworld to him and to the audience.

** Even more flagrant in ''Futureworld'', in which the simulated "space mission" looks cheesy ''even by 1976 standards'', despite being staged by androids more human-like than anything we have in the 2010s.

* MalevolentArchitecture / NoOshaCompliance: The main control room has no emergency exit, and shutting down the power means they can't open the doors at all. The room is also airtight for some reason, with air being pumped in through vents. This essentially turns the function of shutting down power from that room into a suicide button.

** The rest of the park isn't any better. There don't seem to be any fire alarms, emergency escapes, evacuation routes, emergency evacuation vehicles, or speakers to relay information.
