The Friends Experience to debut Las Vegas flagship later this year

The Friends Experience will make its West Coast flagship location debut in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand later this year.

The One in Vegas will transport guests into the world of Friends, allowing fans the chance to explore the show’s iconic moments, behind the scenes content and photo opportunities within life-sized set recreations.

Fans can become part of Ross and Rachel’s iconic Las Vegas wedding scene bursting out into the chapel’s lobby, kick back in Monica’s apartment, or even dance around the legendary fountain featured in the opening credits.

Following The Friends Experience’s successes in more than 24 global cities and eight international countries including active locations in Boston and the first-ever flagship in New York City, along with the recently announced London flagship opening later this summer, The One in Vegas will launch as a part of the show’s 30th anniversary year-long celebration.

“The global success of The Friends Experience has been nothing short of phenomenal,” said Peter van Roden, svp, Warner Bros. Discovery Global Themed Entertainment. “We’ve seen fans from all over the world embrace the chance to relive their favourite moments and connect with the show in a whole new way. With Las Vegas premiering as the West Coast flagship in our global line-up of destinations, there’s even more to look forward to as we continue celebrating the 30th anniversary of Friends.”

Stacy Moscatelli, ceo at Original X Productions – which created the experience along with Warner Bros. Discovery Global Themed Entertainment and Warner Bros. Television Group – continued: “Las Vegas is the perfect destination to debut The Friends Experience’s second US flagship location. Not only does the city attract millions of Friends fans every year, but Las Vegas plays an integral role in the series featuring some of the show’s most iconic and hilarious moments. Bringing The Friends Experience to the MGM Grand, two giants of the entertainment world, creates an enjoyable experience that we know fans will love.”

Michael Neubecker, president and coo at the MGM Grand, added: “Given Friends’ wide appeal domestically and internationally, we are excited to be the long-term West Coast home to this experience that will resonate with so many of our visitors, transporting them to the iconic settings inspired by the show.”
