Following the grand opening of Katmandu Park | Punta Cana, the Caribbean’s first world-class theme park, Falcon’s Beyond (“Falcon’s” or the “Company”), a leading fully integrated global entertainment development company specializing in intellectual property (IP) creation and expansion, has debuted its first e-commerce website, Shop Falcon’s Beyond (shop.falconsbeyond.com).
“Shop Falcon’s Beyond is the ultimate destination for the most extensive and compelling curated merchandise from our Katmandu Parks and the wider Katmandu franchise,” said Cecil D. Magpuri, CEO of Falcon’s. “We are giving our fans the opportunity to extend their in-park experiences by providing the very best merchandise, from apparel to homewares, collectibles to plush, Shop Falcon’s Beyond has something for everyone.”
The Falcon’s Beyond e-commerce shop is also the premier retailer for the company’s new two-player trading card game (TCG), Katmandu: Age of Artifacts. Age of Artifacts taps into the expansive Katmandu universe and its rich, immersive storylines, to create an unmatched player experience, featuring quick, competitive gameplay and hundreds of new Katmandu creatures and characters. Developed with Cryptozoic Entertainment, a leader in the trading cards industry, the game is designed to appeal to casual players, as well as TCG enthusiasts and card collectors. Available now, the “Boro vs. Eldred” starter kit includes two sets of starter decks, providing everything needed for players to duel against each other. New starter kits, decks, booster packs, and other expansion sets are planned to be released regularly.
Details of Falcon’s e-commerce launch follows other recent transformative news from Falcon’s Beyond, including the recent appointment of accomplished entertainment industry executive Simon Philips as the company’s president and the grand opening of Katmandu Park | Punta Cana last month. Conceived and built by Falcon’s, the park features cutting-edge, first-of-its-kind rides and attractions that immerse guests in the company’s original, proprietary Katmandu franchise.
The park complements the recently opened Falcon’s Resort by Meliá | All Suites Punta Cana, the first resort to open under the new leisure and entertainment-based brand, Falcon’s Resorts by Meliá, that offers a unique Resortainment™ hospitality experience.
Last year, Falcon’s Beyond announced plans to become a publicly listed company through a definitive merger agreement with FAST Acquisition Corp. II (“FAST II”) (NYSE: FZT), a special purpose acquisition company founded by Doug Jacob and headed by Sandy Beall. Upon the closing of the transaction, the new combined company will be named “Falcon’s Beyond Global, Inc.” and is expected to be listed on Nasdaq under the ticker symbol “FBYD.” More information about the transaction can be found in the Investor Relations section of Falcon’s website.
Headquartered in Orlando, Florida, Falcon’s Beyond is a fully integrated, top-tier experiential entertainment development enterprise focusing on a 360° IP Expander model.
