The Peppa Pig Theme Park is taking shape at the site in Winter Haven, Florida. During a hard hat tour this week, project director Keith Carr said the park will be a “full day of fun” for “our youngest piggies” (via Click Orlando).
“All the rides were designed with that in mind,” Carr said. “They can play, ride and do everything we have to offer. It’s thrilling enough for a child to experience their first roller coaster, but not going to be too intimidating for the youngest of piggies.”
Peppa Pig Theme Park will include family-friendly rides, themed playscapes and a water play area when it launches as a separately ticketed attraction to Legoland Florida in 2022.

Designed to be the ultimate attraction for children, the Peppa Pig attraction will also feature character shows, live events, an indoor cinema and plenty of ‘muddy puddles’.
Peppa-themed rides include Daddy Pig’s Roller Coaster, Grampy Rabbit’s Dinosaur Adventure and Grandad Dog’s Pirate Boat Ride. Attractions include Peppa Pig’s Treehouse and Madame Gazelle’s Nature Trail.
“This park allows parents to see the smiles on the face of their kids, and for kids to have lasting memories,” Carr said.
Merlin Entertainments has an exclusive multi-territory licensing agreement with Hasbro to create and operate Peppa Pig attractions, targeted at the pre-school market.
