Angry Birds slideYou suddenly feel the urge to book a one-way flight to Finland. Why? Well, it's a land where birds don't fly, but use an intricate system of giant slingshots to travel--it's quite fascinating. OK, we made that up, but hopefully that's what Rovio and Särkänniemi Adventure Park are getting at with Angry Birds Land. It's exactly what it sounds like: an Angry Birds theme park.

Angry Birds Land is currently under construction as an addition to Särkänniemi Adventure Park in Tampere, Finland. According to TravelBite, the Angry Birds wonderland of sorts will be crafted with the world's best amusement parks in mind. You're looking at the Disney World of Angry Birds. "Our goal is to motivate the fans, both adults and children, to exercise and enjoy the outdoors," Rovio EVP Licensing and Merchandising Harri Koponen told TravelBite.

The travel website reports that Angry Birds Land will have the usual rides and attractions--whatever that means--but also a "Magic Places" area in which the real and game worlds collide. Särkänniemi Adventure Park opens for the summer on April 28. While it's uncertain whether Angry Birds Land will be ready by then, the Finnish theme park will post sneak peeks of its progress online. (We're sure it'll be more impressive than swing sets.) So, where are you going on vacation this summer?
