COULD WE BE ANYMORE EXCITED? BOOKING.COM INVITES AMERICANS TO BOOK THE ULTIMATE SLEEPOVER AT THE FRIENDS EXPERIENCE™ IN NEW YORK CITY
With 70% of Americans Looking To Travel and Meet Friends* Once Restrictions Are Lifted, Travel Friends Are The Best Friends
New York, NY - May 12, 2021 – Booking.com, the global travel leader, and Superfly X are celebrating friendship with two officially sponsored stays at this once-in-a-lifetime experience turned overnight stay at THE FRIENDS EXPERIENCE™ in NYC. Booking.com and Superfly X will help a few lucky fans celebrate with an iconic experience in place of all those special occasions they may have missed out on during the pandemic, which prevented us from coming together with our friends. Booking.com together with Superfly X is making THE FRIENDS EXPERIENCE™ in NYC, an immersive two-story space filled with interactive experiences that celebrate the classic FRIENDS™ television series–from set recreations with original props and costumes to limited-edition merchandise and more–bookable for two overnight stays, exclusively on Booking.com. Even if you are like Joey and do not like to share, you will make an exception for this nostalgia-packed space where you and a friend can explore the beloved show for an epic sleepover.
You’re about to gasp OH. MY. GAWD. And it is for real: you’ll be able to capture photos with set re-creations, props, and costumes that have defined more than 25 years of the famed television show. Relive the famous Thanksgiving turkey scene, peek through Rachel and Monica’s purple door, and relax on Chandler and Joey’s recliner after playing some foosball. Help with the infamously doomed sofa pivot, explore newly added original props and costumes from the show like Chandler's bunny suit and Rachel's famous cow jacket, or sit in Monica & Rachel's living room before heading to the fully re-created Central Perk to pose on the iconic orange couch. I KNOW! Most importantly, you’ll be able to have your very own sleepover in THE FRIENDS EXPERIENCE™ with one of your best friends for only $19.94 per night in honor of the year the show premiered.
To be one of the two guests sleeping over in THE FRIENDS EXPERIENCE™’s homage to the remarkable cast of characters, iconic sets, and instantly quotable moments, visit Booking.com on Friday, May 21st, 2021 at 10:00AM ET for a chance to book one of the overnight stays on Sunday May 23rd, 2021 or Monday May 24th, 2021. The lucky bookers will get to shack up inside all the memorable moments, memorabilia, and laugh-a-minute lines, with a full custom designed tour and safety-first itinerary provided with the experience. Now, after all that, how YOU doin’?
It's true the two coveted apartments of the gang are completely unmistakable, which might be a ‘moo point,’ but in a new Booking.com survey more than a quarter (26%) of Americans want to book independently owned accommodations* just like the fictional pads of the famed show. With an array of incredible places to stay – from homes to hotels and much more in between – Booking.com is making this once-in-a-lifetime chance to stay over in the ultimate accommodation a reality.
