Are you a die-hard Friends fan? Did you get the Rachel, a ubiquitous hair cut that defined the 90’s? If you’ve always dreamt of singing “Smelly Cat” at the Central Perk, reading Rachel’s letter to Ross (“18 pages, front and back!”), or wearing all of Chandler’s clothes, you’re in luck.
The FRIENDS™ Experience, an interactive pop-up originally created for the show’s 25th anniversary in New York has arrived at Aventura Mall. Voted as one of USA Today’s Readers’ Choice 10 Best New Attractions and included in CNN’s 12 Best Immersive Experiences around the world, The FRIENDS™ Experience features several nostalgia-packed rooms, activations and re-created sets including Monica’s kitchen and the iconic FRIENDS™ fountain. The interactive space provides opportunities to explore the show’s history and revisit your favorite moments including posing in front of Rachel and Monica’s purple door, relaxing in Chandler and Joey’s recliners, and helping Ross with the famous sofa pivot. And of course, the space will feature a re-created Central Perk with the legendary orange couch.
“The FRIENDS™ Experience invites fans to step inside the world of the iconic series, relive their favorite moments and celebrate the show unlike ever before,” said Stacy Moscatelli, Chief Executive Officer of OGX the co-producer. “We are looking forward to bringing this one-of-a-kind experience to Aventura Mall and welcoming fans across Florida.” An onsite FRIENDS™ retail store featuring exclusive products will also be open to both ticketed and non-ticketed guests.
The FRIENDS™ Experience is held in Treats Food Hall, located on the Third Level of Aventura Mall now through Spring 2024. To book your tickets and learn more about the experience visit www.FriendsTheExperience.com/
