In a true testament to the power of the app, Finland has become the second country (behind China) to open an Angry Birds theme park.
Last September, an unauthorized attraction in China opened allowing visitors to use the game's famous slingshot to knock off pigs in an elaborate structure. In December, it was announced that Finland would open at least two playgrounds for children based on the game.
The new park, called Särkänniemi Adventure Park, is the first official park based on the game. There are twelve rides at the park, including a roller coaster, a lighthouse and an adventure course, along with themed food areas, the Daily News reports.
Visitors can also play the game on screens throughout the park, the official opening of which is slated for June 8.
Park manager Miikka Seppälä told the Asian Correspondent, “The opening of Angry Birds Land in Särkänniemi is a really big deal for us. The theme and design of Angry Birds is internationally renowned, so we are delighted to welcome visitors from around the globe to experience the product for themselves. The area is definitely a must see destination for millions of Angry Birds players, but also a great experience for those who are not yet familiar with the game.”
