An Adventure Time attraction has opened in Taiwan's capital Taipei.

Born from a licensing deal between Cartoon Network and Kuang Hong Arts Management, the attraction opens on May 31st and runs until September 14th.

The Adventure Time – Finn and Jake attraction is housed by the National Taiwan Science Education Center and features six themed zones from the Land of Ooo.

The zones include a Jake Bus, Tree Fort, Marceline’s Rock Room, Fire Kingdom, Ice Kingdom and Candy Kingdom.

After the exhibition closes in Taipei, it will then move to Taichung and then Kaohsiung in 2015.

“This first-of-a-kind attraction showcases the creativity, flexibility and appeal of the Adventure Time franchise," said Melissa Tinker, vice president of Cartoon Network Enterprises for Southeast Asia Pacific.

"It also marks the local debut of merchandise lines, featuring a whole range of accessories branded with unique comic-book artwork never before seen in Taiwan.

"We believe this exhibition has huge potential around Southeast Asia. After Taipei, Taichung and Kaohsiung, we’ll be looking at rolling out this concept to other destinations across the region in 2015 and beyond.”

Lai Yen-Chia, deputy director of Kuang Hong Arts Management’s International Entertainment Department, added: “Adventure Time is one of the most popular series on kids' TV in Taiwan and when we decided to open a cartoon-themed exhibition, it was an obvious choice.

"Adventure Time – Finn and Jake will be the ideal place to entertain kids, teenagers and families during the long summer holidays.”

In Taiwan, Adventure Time is the number one show on cable in its timeslot for kids aged four to 14 and characters from the show also appeared on display on a high-speed train which was wrapped entirely in Cartoon Network branding from mid-2013 in a year-long campaign.
