Toronto's 'The Office' Experience Takes You Straight To Dunder Mifflin & Here's A First Look
It opens this week.
"Okay, it's happening! Everybody stay calm!" Toronto's The Office Experience is opening this week and it will whisk you away to Scranton, Pennsylvania. The attraction lets you spend the day like your favourite characters from the show and while "identity theft is not a joke" it sure seems fun.
The experience is making its international debut at Toronto's Yorkdale Shopping Centre on March 3, 2023 and was brought to life by Original X Productions (the same team behind The FRIENDS Experience) and Universal Live Entertainment alongside The Office U.S. co-creator Greg Daniels.
Calling all fans of The Office! The Office Experience is open in Toronto so you can hang out on realistic and interactive sets at the Dunder Mifflin Paper Company. The Office Experience opens March 3 at the Yorkdale Shopping Centre in Toronto and ends June 4. #theofficeexperience #theoffice #toronto #torontonews #yorkdaleshoppingcentre #torontolife
Get ready to "dance down the aisle at Jim and Pam's wedding, spill Kevin’s famous chili, visit Michael Scott Paper Company, and much more."
Boasting 15 rooms of Office-themed fun, the attraction takes you to the Scranton Business Park and beyond and here's a first look.

Before you head into the exhibition you can get your own personal Dunder Mifflin Employee Badge for an extra cost (luckily Jim is not assisting with these).
You'll be welcomed into Scranton with a large sign and wall featuring some major locations around the city. There's a replica of the Scranton Business Park featuring logos like Vance Refrigeration and Michael Scott's parking spot.

A long corridor takes you past real props and costumes from the show including Dundie Awards, the Princess Unicorn Doll, the Prison Mike bandana, and Michael Scott's suit and jacket. The walls are plastered with photos and information about all of the characters.

Office fans may gasp as they round the corner and catch a first glimpse of the Dunder Mifflin office, which looks exactly like it did in the show. You can sit at all of the character's desks including reception.

No details were missed in the rendition of the office space. You'll find hidden gems like Dwight's bobblehead and the stapler-in-jello. The computers have documents open with character-inspired information and references to the show. Some phones even have conversations with the character's voices.

You can be the "World's Best Boss" by sitting at Michael Scott's desk and holding his iconic mug or head to the conference room (complete with an "IT IS YOUR BIRTHDAY" sign) and act out a scene in front of the blinds where the characters were often interviewed.

The kitchen offers more hidden gems (take a peek in the freezer) and, of course, Ryan's "closet" office.

Head to the break room for a chance to take part in the Finer Things Club and then head over to Michael's least favourite spot, the Annex, to see what's going on at Toby's desk. Here, you can take part in activities like the Office Olympics closing ceremony and "Flonkerton."

Other not-to-miss sites include Pam and Jim's wedding venue (look for Kevin's tissue box shoes) and a photo op with Kevin's chilli spill.

The "That's what she said" wall is filled with iconic show moments and you can even test your knowledge on a giant Stanley-esque crossword puzzle.
