If you’ve spent hours (or, more likely, weeks) of your life playing Angry Birds you’ll know how addictive it is. But have you ever wanted to be the bird? Well, now you can at a new attraction in Dubai.

Kids and adults can strap themselves into a sling, soar through the air on a zip wire and smash into a foam structure at the world’s first Angry Birds Universe exhibition at Modhesh World.

Part of the Summer Surprises festival, you can delve into the art behind the world’s most downloaded app. There’s an educational element to the exhibition with games encouraging learning in science, art, technology, engineering, and mathematics. You can even find out about real life angry birds including cardinals and penguins.

See? All that time playing Angry Birds could turn out to be beneficial after all.
