After successful runs in more than ten North American cities, it has been announced that “The Friends Experience” will open in the Long Beach, Calif., area on June 23. Originally created for the show’s 25th anniversary, fans can celebrate their favorite friends and revisit some of the series’ most-iconic moments with this interactive experience created by Warner Bros. Discovery Global Themed Entertainment, Original X Productions (OGX), and Warner Bros. Television Group.

“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 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. The space will also feature a re-created Central Perk coffee shop with the legendary orange couch. An on-site “Friends” retail store featuring exclusive products will also be open to both ticketed and non-ticketed guests.

“‘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,” says Stacy Moscatelli, co-president, chief strategy officer, OGX. “We are looking forward to bringing this one-of-a-kind experience to southern California.”

“The Friends Experience: The One Near Long Beach” will be open June 23 through Sept. 17. Tickets go on sale Thursday, May 25 at 10 a.m. PST exclusively at FriendsTheExperience.com/LongBeach.
