Angry Birds World set to land in Qatar mall
POSTED 20 Feb 2018 . BY Alice Davis
Location-based entertainment company Trimoo is bringing an Angry Birds World theme park to a shopping mall in Qatar.

The popular Rovio IP has been translated into a 17,000sq m (183,000sq ft) indoor/outdoor attraction with over 20 rides and Angry Birds-themed activities and a variety of dining outlets and shops. Funded by Talal bin Mohamed Trading, it will open at Doha Festival City, Qatar’s largest shopping centre.

“Our objective has always been to deliver more than just entertainment,” said Trimoo CEO Riad Makdessi. “We believe that with creativity, innovation, game and design thinking we can revolutionise the way people experience the world. While our range of attractions is inherently thrilling, we are also focusing on educational activities that will help nourish the curious minds of children.”

Simo Hamalainen, senior vice president of brand licensing at Rovio, added: “We are thrilled to offer the Angry Birds universe experience in its physical form to millions of Angry Birds fans.”

The Angry Birds Movie 2 is set to hit cinemas next year.
