Welcome to 'Experience Imagination', a Themed Entertainment Podcast presented by Falcon's Creative Group. On this show, artists, engineers, filmmakers, and other creative professionals from in and around our design studio come together to tackle a new discussion topic every episode. When it comes to the latest trends, theories, and technologies, we’re diving into the deep end of the pool to shine a light on the modern revolution of themed attractions and entertainment experiences.
#045 - Entertainment That Gives Back
Welcome to our final episode of the year! Because it’s the holiday season, we wanted to do something special for this podcast and focus on entertainment that gives back. We all know how lucky we are to work in themed entertainment. I mean, this job is about making people happy. That’s really the goal. What we create at Falcon’s is definitely a form of escapism, but it goes beyond that.
#044 - Falcon's IAAPA Special
As you probably know, the annual IAAPA expo took place in Orlando from November 16th to the 19th. In addition to hosting guests at our own booth, something we love doing every year, we brought a recording kit with us so we could interview a few attendees on the floor and get their takes on the big convention, where the industry is headed, and how they feel about gathering in person again at the industry’s largest event.
#043 - The Impact of VES in Themed Entertainment
In this episode, we are talking about the Visual Effects Society, otherwise known as VES, a non-profit, professional, honorary society, dedicated to advancing the arts, sciences, and applications of visual effects and to improving the welfare of its members by providing professional enrichment and education, fostering community, and promoting industry recognition.
#042 - Year-Round Attractions That Scare
With Halloween just around the corner, this "spooky" episode focuses on year-round scary attractions. Discover with us some of the techniques that are used to create an attraction's fear-factor, and learn about Falcon's own process in creating those kinds of experiences.
#041 - UCF Students Want To Know
For the first time in our podcasting history, we are getting students involved in the show! We invited UCF Themed Experience graduate students to call in and ask a question about the themed entertainment industry, and members of the Falcon’s team answer those questions.
#040 - On Board with Oceaneering
In this episode, we’re joined by members of the Oceaneering Entertainment Systems (OES) team to discuss our recently announced partnership, what goes into making ride systems, who gets to test them out, and a whole lot of other fun things.

Amazing Industry Insight
Great podcast for anyone interested in creating theme parks and attractions. Each episode is from a totally different viewpoint and offers unique perspectives.
Great podcast for themed entertainment fans!
The first few episodes have been awesome to hear a cool fresh perspective on the industry and to learn more about the side you don't hear a ton about. Love it!
I really enjoy the theme park industry, and to finally have insight on what the professionals are doing to make it even better is such a cool experience to listen to. Can’t wait to listen to more.
