The Angry Birds could be coming to a Theme Park near you!
When do you know you’ve truly arrived? For Peter Vesterbacka and the team over at Rovio, they’re about to see their work with Angry Birds be turned into theme parks–a pretty good sign that they were on to something when they came up with that quirky little physics game.
… Of course, Rovio wasn’t in any need of encouragement at this point, after cementing their place in the top paid charts for what seems like an eternity. But none the less, it appears that a number of theme parks across the world are poised to incorporate the Angry Birds into sections of their grounds. The “Angry Birds Land” promises to indulge your imagination and bring the birds and pigs to real life. You can just imagine the sort of sling shot challenges and stuffed building blocks that are going to be strewn all over these places. It should be a dream for any kid who has spent time on their parents’ iPhones playing with the birds… But who are we kidding, adults will probably get a kick out of it too.
Currently, Angry Birds Lands are lined up for parks in the U.K., China, and the U.S. If you don’t find yourself within a reasonable distance of one of the parks, you’ll have to fill your time with Angry Birds Space for the time being. Speaking of that latest installment to the franchise, how do you think Rovio will work the zero-gravity aspect into these new theme parks?! This could be more interesting than we first thought…
