Called The Office Experience, the set recreations, presented by Superfly X in partnership with Universal Live Entertainment, allow visitors an immersive experience heightened by the use of original show props.  

Did you know this hugely popular American sitcom, which was originally aired between 2005 and 2013, resurfaced as one of the most watched television series last year as people sought comfort in familiar forms of entertainment during the pandemic induced lockdown? Based on the 2001–2003 BBC series of the same name created by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, the drama was adapted for American television by Greg Daniels.

Go back in time as you follow the romance between Pam and Jim, right from the Niagra Falls to the wedding chapel.
