Together, the teams will be able to fund initiatives, conceptualize new ideas, develop technology, and efficiently build and operate cross-cultural, innovative experiences around the world.

We have every confidence that together we can create and realize the next generation of experiential entertainment and education attractions.”
“We are combining forces with Harves Entertainment to bring more profound concepts to life,” said Cecil D. Magpuri, President/Chief Creative Officer of Falcon’s Creative Group. “There is a great demand for immersive entertainment experiences across the spectrum and we want to create the next dimension of imaginative and transformative cross-cultural attractions together.”

They will execute projects with both recognized intellectual property assets and proprietary concepts.
