DIRECTOR of Malaysia Tourism Promotion Board Mohd Akbal Setia, on behalf of its DG Datuk Musa Yusof, officiated the grand opening ceremony of the world’s first Angry Birds Splash Water World, a collaboration between Finland’s Rovio Entertainment Corp and Malaysia’s One Universal Production Sdn Bhd, in conjunction with the 10th anniversary of the Angry Birds at Setia Ecohill in Semenyih, Selangor.
The largest themed mobile inflatable water park in the world was officially opened to the public last Friday for two months before continuing its journey across Asia. The exciting newly expanded Angry Birds concept is a good and timely initiative for Malaysia as part and parcel of the Visit Truly Asia Malaysia 2020 campaign.
Also present at the ceremony was honorary secretary of Malaysian Association of Amusement Themepark and Family Attractions Magendaran Marimuthu.
Mohd Akbal said: “I am delighted to witness this exciting collaboration between Rovio Entertainment and One Universal Production.
I am honoured to officiate the grand opening ceremony of the world’s first Angry Birds Splash Water World in conjunction with Visit Truly Asia Malaysia 2020 campaign.
“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.”
Created in 2019 by Rovio Entertainment, Angry Birds started as a popular mobile game and has since evolved from games to various entertainment and consumer products in brand licensing. Following on from the recent global release of The Angry Birds Movie 2, the Angry Birds Splash Water World will be a collection of big and small activities taking place under the sun at the wide-open space @Setia Ecohill Welcome Centre for two months during Malaysia’s school holiday 2019.
Rovio Entertainment is pleased to have a great cooperation with their Malaysian partners, One Universal Production, to deliver joy to Malaysian fans of the Angry Birds Splash Water World, as seen through the high demands for the tickets. Rovio Entertainment is delighted that the newly expanded Angry Birds concept is well received and strives to make the 2019 Malaysian school holiday a memorable holiday for the entire family.
Loveable characters in the franchise including Red, Chuck, Bomb, Terrence, Mighty Eagle and, of course, the lovely Hatchlings will be featured across the Angry Splash Water World. The highlights will be the inflatable Angry Birds water slides and obstacles. Among them is the tallest water slide standing at 12m in height and is sure to give visitors the thrill.
Joining the huge inflatable slides, there will also be characters parade, characters meet-and-greet and non-scripted dance activities to entertain the crowd.
The Angry Birds Splash Water World will be running on specific dates for two months, starting from Nov 22 and ending on the day schools resume, Jan 5, 2020. Only 1,500 tickets will be available to the public per day, to ensure smooth operation and a great experience for all.
One Universal Production CEO Alvin Lee said: “We are committed to bringing great services and different event experience by delivering innovative ideas such as the world’s first Angry Birds Splash Water World.
“We believe in providing unique and exciting products and services that are great fun for families. We hope your bonds with your family, especially with your children, become closer as you spend your school holidays with us.
“I would also like to take this opportunity to thank our partners, members of the press and media and our audience for making this new expanded Angry Birds concept a success.”
Along with dozens of other Angry Birds elements, there will be the Angry Birds Pop-Up store, which will feature a wide range of exclusive Angry Birds merchandise and memorabilia.
