Angry Birds Land is headed to a theme park relatively near you [Video]
Remember that Angry Birds theme park that's about to land in Finland? According to Mashable, we could get in on that fun, too. On the heels of the massive Angry Birds Space launch, Rovio is in talks to open Angry Birds theme parks in the U.K, the U.S. and parts of China at a later date. The move would all but solidify Rovio as more than a game company, which the Finnish game maker has looked to make clear for some time.
"Zynga is a game company. We stopped looking at ourselves as a game company," Rovio CMO Peter Vesterbacka told SFGate.com. "We sold 25 million plush toys last year. For us, it's about making Angry Birds available everywhere."
These Angry Birds attractions will follow the example of the first-ever Angry Birds Land, an addition to Särkänniemi Adventure Park in Tampere, Finland, meaning that they'll be additions to existing Western and Eastern theme parks. Lappset, the company designing the playground equipment for Angry Birds Lands, looks to blur the lines between the physical and digital worlds with Angry Birds-esque sandpits, arcade games, slides and more. Angry Birds Disney, here we come?
