Created in 2019 by Rovio Entertainment Corp, 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.

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 featuring Red, Chuck, Bomb, Mighty Eagle and Terence. Among them is the tallest water slide standing at 12 meters 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. Combined, we bring on the largest theme mobile water inflatables in the world to Malaysia.
