We live in a quite a crazy world. Finland’s Särkänniemi Adventure Park has opened with a brand new attraction, the world’s first Angry Birds Land. The themed area of the park consists of 12 rides, an adventure course, games and food points, designed especially for families and young children.
Angry Birds Land was designed by Särkänniemi’s own staff and designers in collaboration with the game’s creator Rovio and BDR Design, an American design company specialised in theme parks. The team has made sure that everything from the smallest detail truly represents the popular game. A themed adventure course lies at the heart of the park and a multi-layered sound experience called “voice world” helps whisk visitors off to a virtual playground.
Later in the summer “Magic Place” will be added to the attraction where guests can upgrade the content of their own Angry Birds Game via mobile technology. The area will also feature interactive pods where visitors can play the game and meet characters from Angry Birds.
If you don’t find all of this quite shocking and a disturbing result of the monumental consumerism surrounding smart phones, then you’ll be happy to know that the area opens today, but finishing touches will continue until the beginning of June 2012. The official opening will be celebrated on 8 June.
