Right on time to recreate iconic Thanksgiving episode moments, The Friends Experience has arrived at The Shops at Willow Bend in Plano. Superfans of Friends can celebrate the show by taking photos in 12 different rooms, and purchasing Hi Brew coffee from the Central Perk set-up.
The Friends Experience, created by Superfly X, Warner Bros. Themed Entertainment and Warner Bros. Television Group., comes to Dallas by way of a nationwide tour, after the installations proved to be a hit in Los Angeles and New York. The Dallas installation, appropriately titled “The One in Dallas,” will reside in The Shops at Willow Bend until January 17, 2022.
“Dallas fans have been asking for us to bring The Friends Experience there and we can’t wait to open doors later this fall,” said Stacy Moscatelli, Co-President and Chief Strategy Officer of Superfly X in a press release. “The Friends Experience will give fans the unique
opportunity to step inside the world of Friends and bring their favorite moments from the iconic series to life.”
Throughout the 12 rooms, which take about 30 to 45 minutes to walk through, fans can see recreations of the characters’ apartments, original scripts and set-ups of memorable moments on the show, including a lopsided couch built onto a staircase from the famous “pivot” scene. The self-guided tour opens with an installation of a couch in front of a fountain from the show’s theme sequence.
Fans can also take pictures behind mannequins wearing some of the show’s most memorable outfits, including Joey’s “Could I be wearing any more clothes?!” ensemble.
Tickets for The Friends Experience begin at $32.50, or private groups passes begin at $384.00.
For those who don’t want to drop a pretty penny for the ‘gram, The Friends Experience also has a merchandise store out front, offering Friends memorabilia like mugs, t-shirts, shot glasses and “crapsacks.”
