The Saved By The Bell Pop-Up Is Closing -- And We're So Excited, We're So... Scared
Saved By The Max, the Saved By The Bell pop-up that recreated the Max hangout from the classic teen sitcom announced that it's entering its final semester. It will close at the end of April.
But before that happens, they've remodeled to add two new experiences first: Zack Morris' bedroom and the Malibu Sands Beach Club from the season that took place at a beach club instead of the high school for some reason.
The main dining room bar has been redesigned to create the Malibu Sands. They're also promising tropical cocktails, giant shareable drinks, and more new food items. You'll find some brand new tiki mugs and more beach-themed delights.
Unlike many pop-ups, the food here's actually good -- they've got their own Michelin-starred executive chef, Brian Fisher. We've been, and their food delivered.
Whether you think that Zack Morris Is Trash or not, you also have the chance to visit the late '80s/early '90s bad boy's bedroom, brought to life in all its pastel glory. A press release promises "the ultimate chance to scheme and dream like Zack." His room includes cassette tapes, Dodgers and Lakers merch, and rad posters featuring Janet Jackson, UB40, a cool car, and extreme sports.
It even comes with... a Kelly Kapowski cutout. Not sure if that's cool or creepy in 2019, but sure. His bedside features photos of Zack with Kelly -- and a photo of his mom. (Awwwwww -- maybe he's not trash after all.) They even got the actual Melanie Morris (OK, fine, actress Melody Rogers) to promote the new attraction:
It comes after eight months in L.A., though the traveling pop-up plans to hit its third city soon. One of the partners behind the pop-up, Derek Berry, noted in a press release that they're closing earlier than they'd anticipated thanks to an opportunity coming up in another city.
Beyond the Max itself, they also still have Mr. Belding's Office, a Bayside High hallway, and more attractions to give you the full experience, so take a Time Out and pay your respects.
Reservations for the Final Semester at Saved By The Max are on sale now. You can visit the revamped Saved By The Max starting today.
