Chertsey, UK — An new Angry Birds themed land is preparing to nest this Spring at THORPE PARK Resort, promising a world first must see experience for families, and fans of all ages of the feathered flocks and piggy characters made famous by Rovio Entertainment Ltd, creators of one of the world’s most exciting and iconic digital games’ franchises.
Bringing the Angry Birds world alive, THORPE PARK Resort will premiere the world’s first Angry Birds 4D animation experience. This will form the unique centerpiece of a totally new fully themed land at the Surrey based theme park and only 10 miles from Greater London. The new land also features the much loved Angry Birds characters coming home to roost on Detonator – the Resort’s 100ft rapid drop tower ride – while ‘Red Bird’ and the ‘Bad Piggies’ go bump to bump on a brand new dodgems attraction, alongside themed retail and catering outlets.
The all-new 10 minute animated film Angry Birds 4D experience – jointly developed by Rovio and top 4D animators 3DBA – will be a fully immersive attraction, capturing the fun, colourful and delightful world of the birds and pigs incorporating high impact special effects in movie theatre surroundings.
Jason Wills, THORPE PARK Resort Marketing Director, commented, “We are hugely excited about bringing Angry Birds to THORPE PARK Resort. It has fast established itself as a modern day icon of our times, and we can’t wait to see the reaction of families up and down the country. We hope this new collaboration will surprise and delight our visitors as much as any of our world-class coasters.”
Rovio’s Director of Location Based Entertainment Dan Mitchell said, “It’s great to be teaming up with THORPE PARK Resort, and we hope this will be just the first of many projects together. We are continuously looking to create amazing experiences for our fans by finding new ways to bring our characters from the digital world to the physical world. Having the game jump out of the screen and come to life around you is going to be incredible and we’re confident that this partnership will bring that amazing experience to life.”
With over 25 rides and attractions to enjoy, families and friends can also laugh louder, scream longer and experience THORPE PARK Resort’s world-class coasters* including THE SWARM, the UK’s first winged rollercoaster, which guests can now brave backwards, Stealth, one of Europe’s fastest and tallest rollercoasters, Colossus, a ten loop rollercoaster and Nemesis Inferno, a feet-free, legs-dangling coaster experience, as well as SAW – The Ride.
