Situated near the Angry Birds Land, the Doghill theme area opened Saturday was named after the fairy tale figures created by the Finnish cartoonist and children’s story writer Mauri Kunnas.
The one-hectare-large area appeared to feature a group of retro-style buildings constructed at life size. The old coffee house, traditional mill and rustic workshop were thronged by children, despite that the pharmacy sold candy disguised as drugs, and food ingredients in the bakery were replaced with mud.
The Sarkanniemi Adventure Park, where the twin theme lands are located, turned out to be more attractive to visitors from Finland and abroad, said Miikka Seppala, the CEO of the adventure park.
Thanks to the opening of Angry Birds Land, the first of its kind in the world, “700,000 tickets were sold last year during the period from May to October,” Seppala told Xinhua. He expected more visitors to come this year.
