The John F. Kennedy Space Center in Florida will open an attraction based on the Angry Birds puzzle game franchise this spring, the center announced today.
In collaboration with developer Rovio Entertainment, the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Center will install an interactive exhibit centered around the series, the Angry Birds Space Encounter. The Center states the attraction will bring the franchise's iconic characters to life and has been designed specifically for participation by children.
The Center states that Angry Birds Space Encounter will be the first exhibit of its kind in the United States, a "comprehensive, interactive Angry Birds attraction." Last fall, Rovio announced it would open an Angry Birds Land theme park near Shanghai, and has already opened Angry Birds-themed playgrounds across Europe, the U.K. and China.
The Kennedy Space Center and its Visitor Complex are located on Merritt Island, Fla. provide visitors with tours of the spaceport as well as exhibits, attractions and displays dedicated to the history of U.S. space exploration.
The Center has not shared additional details on what the Angry Birds attraction might be, and we have reached out to them as well as developer Rovio for more information. We will update this story with details as we receive them.
