To celebrate the announcement of more real life Friends experiences lets have a look at the just five of the iconic story lines you could recreate in these interactive areas
1 The one with all the fussball
If you are visiting joey and Chandlers appartment then there is only one thing you acn do – which doesn’t involve a duck and a chicken- and that is playing fussball. Re-live all the competition moments – just don’t get a Monica type person – or she will beat you all
2 The one with all the singing
Why not try you lungs out and be the next Phoebe in Central Perk and sing her classic hits such as Smelly Cat, Two of Them Kissed Last Night, The Cow in the Meadow and Sticky Shoes. Sing in tune or out of tune – no-one will judge you…maybe…
3 The one with all your friends clothes
Want to re-live the moment that Chandler and Joey have their big fight? Well that is easy, just raid your friends closet before you arrive at the event, put them on in the toilet and then walk into Monica’s apartment doing lunges and announcing could you ‘be anymore’ like them.
4 The one where Rachel finds out
Are you a fan of the episode when Rachel and Ross argue about the fact that they were on ‘ a break’ and Ross slept with someone? Well now you can re-live it! just get two friends to argue whilst the rest of you stand on the other side of the door.
5 The one where you bring along the Happy Days Game
When they were at the beach they played strip Happy Days as there was no cards and it ended up in some hilarious outcomes. So bring along the game and that Joey like friend that you want to put inside the mermaid…just exclude the whole stripping thing… that will most likely lead to you being kicked out.
