American Dream iannounce that Angry Birds Mini Golf, the first Angry Birds mini-golf attraction in North America, will open at Meadowlands supermall this year.
The 18-hole indoor course will be inspired by The Angry Birds Movie 2, out in the US on August 14, 2019. The course takes visitors on an adventure through Bird Island, Pig Island and Eagle Island, with twists and challenges along the way.
Fan favorite characters such as Red, Chuck, Bomb and The Pigs will be fully rendered in 3D form, mirroring their on-screen personas. Golf balls will be designed to look like the birds, while putters will be shaped like the iconic slingshot from the games. The internationally popular entertainment franchise celebrates its 10th anniversary this year.
“As Bomb says in The Angry Birds Movie, ‘This is incredible, we’re witnessing history right now,’” said Don Ghermezian, president, American Dream. “Together with Rovio Entertainment, we will offer families a ‘lights-out’, interactive experience that they cannot find anywhere else. Angry Birds Mini Golf at American Dream will be completely unique and the first of its kind in North America.”
“Partnering with American Dream for our first ever location-based entertainment offering in the U.S. is a perfect hole in one. Mini golf is a lot like playing Angry Birds 2. You need just the right angle, the proper trajectory and a deft touch to sink your birdie. And you get really mad when you miss. There’s no better way to let your anger fly than through a fully immersive, one-of-a-kind Angry Birds mini golf experience and we’re thrilled be in such great company at American Dream,” said Joe Lawson, SVP of Content Licensing and U.S. Brand Development, Rovio Entertainment
