Dominican Republic to get first theme park

The Orlando Sentinel reports that two Orlando companies will be partnering to build a series of attractions that will eventually form the first theme park in the Dominican Republic.

The first park to be built by Katmandu Group and Falcon’s Creative Group will be in Punta Cana and will feature the debut of Falcon’s Suspended Theater.

Katmandu, Punta Cana is set to open late next year. The investment cost was not shared.

Falcon’s Creative Group is known for building immersive experiences for theme parks, the Sun Sentinel said.

The company helped design Kennedy Space Center’s Heroes and Legends exhibit and helped build a huge National Geographic installation in New York’s Times Square.

The theme Park in Punta Cana will also include a 36-hole golf course designed by Katmandu and Falcon.

Falcon’s, also located in southwest Orlando, has previously worked with SeaWorld, Universal Studios and Walt Disney Co.

The Sun Sentinel said the new park will also feature a dark ride created by Falcon’s that will take riders through the legend of Katmandu.

Katmandu is creator of the Katmandu Park in Majorca Spain. The park includes ten attractions.

Falcon’s Creative Group, as it’s known today, began as Falcon’s Treehouse in 2000. The company’s website outlines that it has completed projects for companies that include Chimelong Group, Evergrande Group, Hard Rock, Lotte Group, National Geographic, SeaWorld Parks and Entertainment, Universal Studios, and Walt Disney Company.
