Unique Experience for Friends Fans Is Short Drive From New Jersey
"How you doin?" When you love 'Friends', you know "I'll be there for you." If you, too, love Rachel, Monica, Phoebe, Joey, Chandler, Ross, and all the characters that came through the tv show 'Friends', there's a quick trip you need to make this spring. And bring some FRIENDS.
"Hey, Pheebs. Check it out." After 10 seasons and 236 episodes, 'Friends' disappeared from prime-time television in the spring of 2004. However, our love affair with the show, characters, and situations has only grown. In fact, so much so that the show's made several "top tv shows of all-time" type lists and it's been one of the most streamed shows on Netflix and now HBO Max. Now, you can have 'The FRIENDS™ Experience.'
What is it? Well, bring a camera and some FRIENDS because the general admission experience includes you re-living some of your favorite scenes or visuals from the show. For example, their website shares that you can "hang out in Monica and Rachel’s apartment, poke Ugly Naked Guy on the balcony and kick back and relax in Joey and Chandler’s comfy chairs. Now that’s what I call kick-you-in-the-crotch, spit-on-your-neck fantastic!" Tickets for that experience start at $45 and the pre-sale ends at midnight tonight (February 11th, 2021) here.
Add to that, you can check out the chapel where Ross and Rachael said "I do" and even "take a victory lap on Pat the Dog." Of course, there are cool photo-friendly opportunities and plenty of merch to be had.
The experience lasts about an hour, officially opens on March 17th, 2021, and is located at 130 East 23rd Street in Manhattan. I found a cool video of the Chicago Experience and posted it below. First enjoy, The Cast of 'Friends': Then and Now!
