There's a Mini Theme Park Dedicated to 'Fortnite' at Gamescom
Complete with obstacle courses and exclusive merch.
Gaming convention Gamescom in Germany is holding Epic Games‘ first official mini theme park for Fortnite. The Fortnite booth was done up in a big way for the convention, which is filled to the brim with references to the popular free-to-play battle royale title.
There’s a giant slide folks can go down, a mechanical rocket to ride, and even a zip line glider. You can shoot baskets like the popular emote, or have a pickaxe fight, a common practice for gamers waiting in the waiting lobby. There’s also a ton of exclusive merchandise you can only get at their booth as well, like tees and pins that’ll sell well online. People who take place in Epic Games’ obstacle course and win will also be awarded in-game sprays, all track by Gamescom’s exclusive battle pass.
