Fake Angry Birds Theme Park in China


An unlicensed Angry Birds theme park has just launched in Changsha, Hunan province in China. This theme park is built in a real and very huge size of authentic-looking Angry Birds game. Players use a gigantic slingshot which is loaded with plush Angry Birds in order to knock down the pigs which are sitting on a castle.

The theme park is currently facing all sorts of legal issues from the Finland-based company, Rovio for violating several issues of trademarks and copyrights. According to another source from Stomp Singapore, Rovio plans to open a big-budget theme park but has not finalized yet.

"This (Angry Birds park) serves as a method for people to purge themselves and to gain happiness," a park official told the Chinese site Gamersky.com.

According to CNNGO, The Angry Birds playground is located within the park’s American Zone, next to a scaled-down replica of Mount Rushmore. Entry fee for Window of the World is RMB 90 (US$14). No additional fee is required to use the Angry Birds theme park.
