MAKE SOMETHING THAT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Ever had the feeling amazing places, people, and missions hide just beneath the surface… barely out of reach… right around the corner from our ordinary lives? Now these fantastical yet incredibly authentic worlds are opening – just for you.

Hidden Worlds Entertainment (HWE) is a new immersive experience-based venture brought to life by industry leaders from the fields of conservation, themed entertainment, and technology. We create attractions with purpose that supplement the traditional approaches of museums, science centers, aquariums, and zoos. While epic in imagination, every production is rooted in authenticity and inspiring messaging, generating world positive impact: Experiences that not only create awareness, but make a change for the better.

We create worlds and adventures where our guests can think big, have fun, and do good.

REMOVING THE GAP BETWEEN IMPACT AND ENTERTAINMENT

Audiences are savvy. While people still crave a carefree and pleasurable lifestyle, they have increasingly begun to seek out the meaning behind their activities. It’s time our leisure activities evolve to match this spirit.

HWE’s attractions are fun and entertaining, while infusing educational substance that resonates for all audiences, from large families to single adults. But informing can only go so far – we want to inspire our audiences to act. We utilize state of the art technology to optimize content for empathy, delivering on our promise of world positive impact. We call this Impactainment.

A FLEXIBLE PLATFORM WITH BROAD APPEAL

Independent of location, size, or project budget, no matter if indoor or outdoor, our platform is highly flexible and can accommodate a wide range of spatial requirements. HWE’s modular design enables easy transport and rapid installation to save costs while maximizing time onsite.

Translation: more time for guests young and old to be mesmerized by our nature-inspired wonderlands. From family-focused daytime programming to adult-centered immersive dining and cocktail experiences in the evening, our attractions engage a broad range of customers.

Our PARTNERS

Successful expeditions require teamwork — we are fortunate to have a solid base of pioneers in conservation, neuroscience, and more guiding our voyage from all over the globe.

MEET OUR CREW

To accomplish this ambitious mission, we rely on a group of extraordinary women and men from all around the world, uniting their talents and passion to build a common dream. Our crew is second to none, combining decades of knowledge in entertainment, conservation, and storytelling.

Founded by Daniel Hettwer, Hidden Worlds Entertainment is comprised of industry leaders such as Robert L. Ward, the founder of Universal’s theme park division, as well as Arnold van de Water, the key driver behind the award winning immersive experience “Meet Vincent.” Famed explorers Philippe and Ashlan Cousteau trade ideas with the likes of world renowned neuro-economist Dr. Paul Zak and Blake Vogt, the magician behind many of David Copperfield’s illusions. Our experiences are brought to life through the insight and innovation of marine scientists such as Dr. Austin Gallagher and a conceptual team led by creative director, David Ruzicka.
