Get a Chicago-style Italian Beef ready for sandwich-loving Joey because the wildly popular FRIENDS Experience is coming to Chicago. Originally created for the 25th anniversary, fans can celebrate their favorite friends and revisit some of the series' most iconic moments with this two-story, enhanced experience.
The interactive space features 12 nostalgia-packed rooms and activations plus several all-new experiences including Monica's kitchen and balcony and the iconic FRIENDS fountain. Visitors can explore the show's history and re-create favorite moments including peeking 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, hang with friends at Central Perk with the legendary orange sofa.
Hours: Runs Mar. 17-May 31; Thurs., noon-9 p.m.; Fri., noon-10 p.m.; Sat., 10 a.m.-10 p.m.; Sun., 10 a.m.-9 p.m.
Note: The Friends Experience has earned the Certified Autism Center designation. Guests with sensory needs can request a sensory guide which outlines the degree in which the Experience may impact particular senses. There is also a private on-site quiet room available to allow for quiet breaks, if needed.
