It started as a game. Then came the merchandise including candy, clothes and cups before it was turned in to not just one, but two movies. So far.

Now, the world gets the first ever Angry Birds Splash Water World in celebration of the birds’ 10th birthday. And you will have to go to Malaysia to be bathed by the grumpy animals.

The Angry Birds video game was developed in 2009 by the Finnish company Rovio Entertainment. In collaboration with Malaysia’s One Universal Production, the company has now turned the water park in to reality for the next two months at Setia Ecohill in Semenyih, Selangor, near Kuala Lumpur.

Starting from 22 November 2019 guests can slide their way through the school holidays and hang out with the familiar, angry characters. On 5 January 2020, the water park moves on to other Asian destinations.

At the grand opening ceremony, Mohd Akbal Setia, director of the Malaysia Tourism Promotion Board, expressed his hopes for the affect the theme park will have on tourism.

“We believe that this family attraction water park, strategically built and premiered in Malaysia, is the right direction forward in achieving our Visit Malaysia 2020 goal of 30 million tourists,” he said, according to The Malaysian Reserve.

Only 1,500 tickets will be available each day, so make sure to lock in your day of wet fun here.
