WINTER HAVEN, Fla. – The first-ever Peppa Pig theme park will open to guests on Feb. 24, theme park officials announced on Tuesday.

The popular children’s character, known for her British accent and content for preschoolers, will have an all-new standalone theme park just steps from Legoland Florida. The park will feature multiple rides, interactive attractions, themed playscapes and water areas complete with “muddy puddles.”

Back in August, leaders gave News 6 an exclusive look at the work underway on the upcoming rides, attractions and facilities.

“What you’re going to get is a full day of fun for all ages and demographics, but really this is for our youngest ‘piggies.’ So that 2 to 6-year-old is really our wheelhouse to come and experience everything. All the rides were designed with that in mind. They can play, ride and do everything we have to offer,” Peppa Pig Project Director Keith Carr said.

One of the attractions is Daddy Pig’s Roller Coaster.

Guests will board his recognizable red car and go on an unexpected adventure when Mr. Bull’s “digging up the road” sends guests on a curvy exploration of Daddy Pig’s new shortcut, leaders described.

Peppa Pig and a number of her friends will also be walking around the park for families to meet her.

Merlin Entertainment, which runs Legoland parks, has entered an exclusive multi-territory agreement with Hasbro, which owns Peppa Pig.
