They were “on a break,” but now… they’re back!

Tickets are now ON SALE for the wildly popular “Friends” experience in Chicago. Fans can once again explore FRIENDS like never before with set re creations, original props and costumes, photo ops and more. To tell us more, here’s Annessa, as she chats with Steve Feener, Chief Projects Officer for Superfly X.

About the “Friends” Experience:
Created by Superfly X, Warner Bros. Consumer Products and Warner Bros. Television Group– tickets are on sale at, FriendstheExperience.com/Chicago. “The One in Chicago” is located at The Shops at North Bridge on the Magnificent Mile at 540 N. Michigan Ave. (the corner of N. Michigan Ave. and E. Ohio St.). The interactive, two-story experience features 12 nostalgia-packed rooms and activations including Monica’s kitchen and balcony and the iconic Friends fountain. The space provides opportunities to explore the show’s history and re-create some favorite moments including peaking around Rachel and Monica’s purple door, relaxing in Chandler and Joey’s recliner, or helping Ross with the infamous sofa pivot. And of course, the space features a re-created Central Perk with the legendary orange couch where fans can be like Phoebe and serenade their friends with “Smelly Cat.” The experience also includes a Friends retail store featuring several exclusive products that is also open to non-ticketed guests. Guests can reserve a timed entry to visit with a ticket priced at $35.00 plus taxes and fees. Private access tickets are also available for groups of six or 10 guests. These tickets allow fans to visit the space in the morning before general ticketholders arrive as well as ensure maximum social distancing between groups for a more private experience.

Accredited as a STAR facility by the Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC), safety protocols and procedures at the Experience include but are not limited to social distancing, requiring masks, non-invasive temperature checks and thorough cleaning and sanitization measures.
