A real life Angry Birds? It's a hit in China


Odds are you haven’t been living under a rock for the past two years. So it’s likely then that you or someone you know has been affected by a severe addiction to Angry Birds, the drag-and-shoot smart phone sensation that has led to 300 million downloads and an incalculable amount of wasted time.


If you are my grandmother (or part of the other half-percent of the population unfamiliar with Angry Birds), allow me to explain the premise of the game. You are in control of Angry Birds, a group of multi-colored mavens hell-bent on re-gaining stolen eggs from a group of evil green pigs. Utilizing a slingshot, you use said birds to take out the evil green pigs in increasingly difficult stages. That’s it.


And apparently the simplistically addictive gameplay translates into the real world. The internet is abuzz over reports of a new Angry Birds theme park in China. We can now confirm that the game has in fact been replicated in real-world scale at the Window of the World theme park in Changsha, China.


The problem? The park didn’t consult with Angry Birds creator Rovio before constructing the park, which is usually a big no-no. Fans looking to play the real-life game shouldn’t fret just yet, however.


Rovio, which is looking to expand into China, is apparently impressed with the park and looking to work out a deal to keep it open.
