"Angry Birds" has already taken over our iPhones. Does it have to conquer our playgrounds, too? "Angry Bird" creator Rovio has reportedly signed a "global deal" with Lappset, a playground equipment manufacturer, to build playgrounds that emulate the "Angry Birds" set-up. Finland just opened two of them after witnessing the success of a similar idea in China.

The game has players launch birds at structures, in an attempt to topple the structures onto enemy pigs. The playgrounds offer similar activities involving slingshots, in addition to your typical playground toys modeled to resemble the game. Rovio marketing chief Peter Vesterbacka said in a statement, "The playgrounds fit perfectly into the Angry Birds world and our way of thinking."

    This fad is going to die out fast.

    interesting, but more like a circus that needs to keep traveling, then it will be successful

    It will take off but this is so overrated beyond belief. Why isn't there a Nintendo based playground and/or a theme park? Why isn't there a Mario-game based one as well.

    You know when a company is desperately trying to overcome other bigger corporates when they come out with ideas like these and they've only been around for less than 2 years.

    They should have just stopped with the games. No need for any of this other crap

    I thought it was an amusement park, not a playground. I would love to see a rollercoaster set on angry birds. They put you in a ball and launch you at a building. Hillarious to watch, not so fun to be in the middle of.

    It's a great idea but a whole park?? I'd just think one or two rides would be good enough.

    Why is this game so popular? Angry birds is just little birds hitting brick walls.

    Make it stop. I'm sick of hearing about Angry Birds.

    Do people not care about good, thought out games anymore? All people seem to talk about these days are Call of Duty like games and as just said, Angry Birds. Whatever happened to Mario, Zelda, Final Fantasy? Those were all good games, and still are.

    Where did that fan-base go. What has really caused it to deplete in such terms as something of the like of Birds, that are Angry? Shame, really.

    All of them. An ultimate gamer does not play Angry Birds, they shoot their hearts out on multiplayer Battlefield 3. Angry Birds= casual, cheap app Battlefield, Halo, Kingdom Hearts= hardcore gaming

    Angry birds, really? This is absurd butt it probably will take off. Promoting negativity by using semi - animated birds, then building a theme park around them for the herds of mindless fad followers usually dose. What's next, psychotic in a bell tower w/ a high powered riffle? Actually that might be fun, never mind.

    I don't have this phone or game, but I think it will be popular, because people are bored, and relate to their electronics and themes from those, very strongly. I expect it to be a cross between cosplay and frisbee golf, something only for a niche market.
