Rides and attractions announced for Peppa Pig Theme Park opening in Texas in 2024 – The Points Guy

A family of adorable pink pigs will be moving to Texas this year.

North America’s first Peppa Pig Theme Park opened in Winter Haven, Florida on Feb. 24, 2022. Now, Merlin Entertainments has announced it will open a second Peppa Pig Theme Park location in the Dallas-Fort Worth area in 2024.

The new Peppa Pig Theme Park will be in North Richland Hills — a suburb to the northeast of Fort Worth, next to the 17-acre NRH2O Family Water Park and less than 30 minutes from the Legoland Discovery Center and Sea Life Grapevine aquarium.

“North Richland Hills is known for its family-friendly amenities and activities, and we could not be more thrilled to add Peppa Pig Theme Park to the mix. This will be a great addition to our community,” Oscar Trevino, mayor of North Richland Hills, said in a press release announcing the new location.

“Given the incredible success of our LEGOLAND® Discovery Center and SEA LIFE Aquarium in Grapevine, Texas, the North Richland Hills community was a natural next step in our expansion and rollout,” Scott O’Neil, Merlin Entertainments CEO, added.

Details on ticket types for Peppa Pig Theme Park’s Texas location have yet to be announced. However, it wouldn’t be surprising to see some type of combination ticket available, especially considering Legoland Discovery Center and Sea Life Grapevine are also owned by Merlin Entertainments.

This would be similar to Peppa Pig Theme Park’s Central Florida location, which is directly adjacent to Legoland Florida Resort and offers combination tickets to Peppa Pig Theme Park, Legoland Florida and Legoland Water Park.

Peppa Pig Theme Park’s Texas location will have five rides, a water play area and loads of activities designed just for kids. Daddy Pig’s Roller Coaster is a perfect first roller coaster for little ones, but even parents may let out a squeal or two. The other rides will be Peppa Pig’s Balloon Ride, Grandad Dog’s Pirate Boat Ride, Grampy Rabbit’s Dinosaur Adventure and Mr. Bull’s High Striker.

In between rides, kids can visit play spaces across the park like the Muddy Puddles Splash Pad (bring a swimsuit and a towel to dry off after), a bicycle and tricycle trail, a Fun Fair with free carnival games and character meet-and-greets, a playground and more.

Kids won’t be stuck in the stroller moving from ride to ride all day long. Peppa Pig Theme Park is small enough and laid out in such a way that kids can run around and explore (while their parents attempt to keep up with them).

Its smaller size also means you can experience the entire park in one day, making Peppa Pig Theme Park the latest in a trend toward smaller and more affordable theme parks, like the Universal-owned park also under development in Texas. Peppa Pig Theme Park’s Florida location sells one-day tickets starting at only $34 per person.

Though not yet expressly stated, it’s also expected that the new Peppa Pig Theme Park will emphasize accessibility, much like other Merlin-owned attractions. Peppa Pig’s Florida location has many attractions designed to be wheelchair accessible. It also has accreditation through the International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards as a Certified Autism Center, meaning staff members have sensory awareness training, and each attraction has a sensory guide for parents.

If you are looking for a sensory-friendly area or just need a quiet place to relax and cool off, The Cinema plays nonstop episodes of “Peppa Pig,” and guests can relax on oversized beanbag chairs.
