From Fox News:


Watch out little, green pigs everywhere. Angry Birds theme parks could be migrating to a location near you.
The maker of Angry Birds has announced plans to open themed activity parks in the U.K., and hopes to expand into China in the near future This follows the expected opening of 'Angry Birds Land', a theme park located in Särkänniemi Adventure Park in Tampere, Finland set to open next month, Reuters reports.
The activity parks are just one way Rovio, makers of the world's most downloaded game, is expanding beyond its reach. Rovio says it has also signed up a top U.S. retailer to put its branded toys, books and T-shirts in stores nationwide, timed to coincide with the launch of its new Angry Birds Space game this week.
Last year an unlicensed “Angry Birds” attraction opened in a theme park in China that gives visitors the chance to use a real slingshot to knock pigs (not real) off of elaborate structures.
Rovio's parks will be built through a partnership with Finnish playground equipment manufacturer Lappset and will feature Angry Birds-styled swings, sandpits, climbing towers, slides and arcade games, says Reuters.

I thought China usually just would go ahead and do it, not worrying about being official. I saw an article last year of a park that had a bunch of stuff ripped off from World of Warcraft and Starcraft.
