Falcon’s Beyond Global, LLC has revealed details of the first of its new signature destinations merging retail, dining, and entertainment.
The first Falcon’s Central located in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic will consist of four brick-and-mortar, location-based entertainment (LBE) venues featuring both iconic and original IPs from Falcon’s Beyond:
An experiential edutainment destination engaging guests with popular IPs in interactive environments, with seamlessly integrated media, and hands-on exploration for the entire family. Upon entering the venue, guests encounter four portals offering immersive experiences and attractions based on Falcon’s Curiosity Spectrum – science, technology, arts, and nature. Beyond each portal, guests begin a self-guided journey of exploration, interaction, and learning with beloved characters and enriching environments.
Curiosity Playground will feature several IPs that air on PBS KIDS, including Dinosaur Train, Odd Squad, Wild Kratts and Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum. Integration of IPs from other notable children’s brands will be announced soon.
Enter the world of popular video game properties in this immersive experience that includes a high-energy gastropub, an arcade of the future, multi-platform games and state-of-the-art gaming bays where visitors can eat, drink and play together. Guests will have the opportunity to enjoy these gaming IPs beyond their visit through availability of consumer products, including apparel, merchandise, electronics and NFTs.
Become fully immersed in the worlds of popular media properties in the StoryHub, featuring interactive media experiences, a multi-game platform, exclusive merchandise and apparel.
Discovery, edutainment and conservation come together through this original virtual adventure. With the assistance of an intelligent submersible, a team of young scientists is guided through learning about our planet in ways never thought possible. The experience expands across entertainment, educational and consumer products.
Cecil D. Magpuri, CEO of Falcon’s Beyond, said: “Falcon’s Central will be a unique entertainment destination in popular resort markets that enables guests – especially families — to connect with the brands they love while traveling.”
“In addition to location-based entertainment that brings to life countless beloved IPs through activities, merchandise and more, this new complex will offer a complete array of retail and dining, completely transforming the vacation experience.”
