Warner Bros. Television Group has teamed up with AT&T and MGM Resorts International to offer Friends fans a 25th anniversary celebration spectacular, in the entertainment capital of the world.
Fly, drive, take a train or set off on a cross-country road trip via taxi with your besties to the bright lights of Las Vegas to honor the best TV series of all time!
Remember in seasons five and six, when the Friends gang headed west to Las Vegas to visit Joey on the set of his movie? What happened there 10 years ago, however, did not stay there and visitors to Las Vegas can relive some of those hilarious moments –– minus any last-minute weddings –– in a weekend celebration of all things Friends…
The Fountains of Bellagio
“I’ll be there for you, when the rain starts to pour…”
The iconic Fountains of Bellagio will unveil a brand-new show set to the catchy Friends theme song, “I’ll Be There For You” by The Rembrandts. Created by WET Design, the show will debut at sunset on Friday 18 October and run on rotation throughout the weekend and beyond.
There will also be exclusive photo ops with the Central Perk couch, which will be in front of the Fountains. (And a shot worthy of the gram!)
Phoebe’s Yellow Cab Escape Room
“It’s like you’re always stuck in second gear…”
But for Friends fans, this will not only be their day, their week, their month but also their year! Located outside New York-New York Hotel & Casino, Phoebe’s Yellow Cab Escape Room offers the challenge of an escape room with the fun of a Friends trivia game, in a fully operational taxicab.
Which of the following is not true?
A. Phoebe inherited the cab from her grandmother.
B. Ross named it the “Death Cab” because of Phoebe’s driving abilities.
C. Princess Consuela Banana-Hammock also owns the vehicle.
D. None of the above.
If you guessed D, you’re a natural. Head to Vegas to try your luck!
Central Perk LEGO®
At nearly 700 square feet, this re-creation of one of the series’ signature sets will be on display exclusively at New York-New York. Built out of 900,000 LEGO bricks over a period of four months, this life-sized re-creation from acclaimed artist Nathan Sawaya features everything from the iconic sofa to the latest menu board.
Performance by The Rembrandts
“I’ll be there for you, like I’ve been there before…”
The Rembrandts will perform an exclusive live set at The Park, the immersive outdoor dining and entertainment district located adjacent to New York-New York. Famous for their iconic theme song, the musical duo will be on hand to perform their hits and other Friends-related songs.
Blue Man Group – Blue Friends Couch
The world-famous Blue Man Group may not be able to pivot a couch, but they sure can paint one. From their home at Luxor Hotel and Casino, the enigmatic Blue Men will transform the iconic orange Central Perk sofa in a way that only this bald and blue trio could. Their newly painted creation will be on display inside Luxor on Saturday 19 Oct.
