Published Jun 27, 2019We've all watched Seinfeld so much that we can likely close our eyes and picture ourselves in the show. That fantasy will be one step closer to reality when The Seinfeld Experience opens in New York next year.
The project is the closest possible thing to an official Seinfeld amusement park, as the ticketed attraction in the Gramercy neighbourhood will include immersive set pieces and a merch shop.
According to Deadline, the experience, which is being produced by Superfly (the same company behind the comedy event Clusterfest), will include interactive exhibits, set recreations, props from the show and brand-new content. Further, the merch shop will include limited and exclusive Seinfeld gear.
"We're thrilled to bring The Seinfeld Experience to life in an innovative way, combining nostalgia with immersive entertainment, and getting fans closer than ever before to the show and its beloved characters," Superfly co-founder Jonathan Mayers said. "A show as iconic as Seinfeld should be celebrated with an experience that truly matches its legacy and enduring influence."
Jerry Seinfeld added: "Because I am Seinfeld, for a long time I was the only person to actually have the Seinfeld experience. Now, these crazy Superfly people are going to make it so lots of people can interact with our silly '90s TV show. All I can say is, in the general context of the world we live in, this now seems completely normal."
The Seinfeld Experience will launch in February 2020, with tickets expected to go on sale in the coming months.
