The ever growing popularity of the Angry Birds game that started off as an iPhone app has become a global favorite among people of all ages and this explains the soon-to-be opened Angry Birds Land. China was the first country to turn this animated obsession into a reality with an unofficial Angry Birds theme park. Finland has now followed suit, by opening the first official Särkänniemi Adventure Park based on the game.
Visitors can enjoy twelve rides, as well as an entirely themed park, equipped with a food area and screens throughout the park to play the game on. The Särkänniemi Adventure Park will be up and running starting on June 8th, 2012.
This concept is a great example of turning fantasy into reality. As users immerse themselves into virtual gaming, they still crave those tangible experiences that amplify our desire for excitement.
