After successful runs in New York City, Boston, Chicago, Atlanta, and Dallas, the wildly popular The FRIENDS Experience will open in Phoenix on Thursday, February 24, 2022. 

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. “The One in Phoenix” will be located at Paradise Valley Gateway at 10845 N. Tatum Blvd.

Voted a 10Best New Attraction by USA Today, The FRIENDS Experience features 12 nostalgia-packed rooms and activations including Monica’s kitchen and the iconic FRIENDS fountain. The interactive space provides opportunities to explore the show’s history and re-create your 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, the space will feature a re-created Central Perk with the legendary orange couch. An onsite FRIENDS retail store featuring exclusive products will also be open to both ticketed and non-ticketed guests. 

“We are thrilled to kick off The FRIENDS Experience’s 2022 North American tour in Phoenix,” said Stacy Moscatelli, Co-President and Chief Strategy Officer of Superfly X. “Phoenix FRIENDS fans will be able to step inside the world of the iconic series, relive their favorite moments and celebrate the show unlike ever before.”  

The FRIENDS Experience will be open in Phoenix from February 24 through May 8, 2022.  Timed entry tickets are available starting at $30.50 plus taxes and fees. Private access tickets are also available for groups of up to 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.  

To ensure a safe environment for all staff and guests, The FRIENDS Experience remains “Monica Clean” and plans to continue COVID-19 protocols throughout the space including, but not limited to social distancing, requiring masks, and thorough cleaning and sanitization measures.
