The game Angry Birds can be found on most smart phones and tablets these days, the famous birds can be found on merchandise, such as plush toys and t-shirts but this year Angry Birds will flock to Gran Canaria! Finnish construction and design company Lappset and Holiday Club are teaming up with Rovio Entertainment (the people behind the Angry Birds phenomenon) to bring us an Angry Birds Activity Park. The 3.5 million euro investment will be near to the Bus Station (previously a tennis court area) in the popular resort of Puerto Rico. The outdoor theme park will span 5,600-m2 and is expected to attract crowds of 100,000 people per year, including residents and tourists. “The Gran Canaria activity park will be the fourth Lappset activity park designed for Holiday Club Resorts Oy. The project also represents the biggest single sale in Lappset’s history. Activity-based tourism is on the rise, and our cooperation with Holiday Club and Rovio allows us to get involved in designing active holidays for people of all ages”, says Lappset Group Oy’s Deputy Managing Director and Director of Themed Activity Parks Tero Ylinenpää. As an Angry Birds fan, I thought this Activity Park is an exciting piece of news, plus it will create new jobs in the area. Here is an Area Plan of how the new Angry Birds Activity Park will look when finished, which is due to open October 2013: Just like in the game, there is classic and space sections of the park. Attractions will include: Terence's wheel, Curling, Air Somersault Track, Bag Jump a Pedal Car Track, Snack Bar, Learning Room, Arcade, Lazer Room and Party Room. There will also be an Adventure Golf Course and Gift Shop. This is great news for the resort and I'm already looking forward to taking my Angry Birds obsessed niece and nephew for a day out! As this is opening in a couple of months, I will keep you updated with any news related and possibly photographs as it progresses. Do you enjoy my blog posts?
