Angry Birds Theme Park to Open in Finland

Since the Finnish game company first released Angry Birds in December 2009, Rovio has received worldwide attention and praise for its unbelievably addictive mobile game. One of the game's biggest fans would probably have to be UK Prime Minister David Cameron, who himself has already completed all of the game's levels. Apparently Rovio's wide fan base also includes the Finnish Särkänniemi Adventure Park.

With Särkänniemi's summer season beginning on April 28th, the company is set to begin construction on Angry Birds Land, an Angry Birds themed area of the park. Although an unlicensed Angry Birds themed attraction was opened in China last year, this one will have the official support of Rovio. Angry Birds fans will be able to see sneak previews of construction and attractions on Särkänniemi's website and the Angry Birds Facebook page after the summer season begins.

    This game is highly overrated. there's been many similar games to angry bird before it even came out.

    So? There were a great many tower defense games before Kingdom Rush and Plants vs Zombies but that doesn't make them any less awesome.

    Angry Birds is great not because it is an original game but because they took a common game style and made it much more fun than usual.

    A great portion of game developers should take note of that.

  • I don't know anything about this angry bird thing, but how can the prime minister of the UK have time to play such a game? Might as well see him play CoD MW3 with Obama and Putin in the Lincoln Bedroom.

    My issue is that these small project games are that they are becoming more and more popular because they're extremely easy to start up and have the potential for gargantuan profits. So I hope that people don't start solely focusing on these types of games because it might mean less high production games.

    Playing a game like Mass Effect 3 feels like a worthwhile experience. Angry Birds and such games just feel like a waste of time.

    I only played it once and on a plane ride on my brothers phone to kill the time I don't even know why that game is popular defender is leaps and bounds better for android.
    It's all a matter of taste. Lots of Toms readers dislike Angry Birds I see. I didn't like it either and was surprised of success. But when I got my hands on it.. Me and my other half couldn't wait to play the game. We were playing on iPod touch one level after another while sharing the device. Just got addicted until finished all levels with 3 stars :) Waste of time? Maybe.. Still, quite a fun game. I know there were similar ones before, but this one was finished all the way from simple story to sounds and gameplay.

    This theme park is going to ROCK!! Just imagine! You take your whiny toddler, plop them into a slingshot and launch the little bugger into a pile or wooden crates, or sheets of glass! Winner gets a stuffed pigs head with a crown on it LOL

    Could 'Angry Birds' be the 'pet rock' of this decade?

    I mean where we, 20 year later, in the world could it become THIS successful?

    and while I never played it myself (seems to be a variation of the Tower Defense type games) I don't see anything wrong with 'wasting' a little time on something like it.
    The brain needs junk food too :-)
