Residents and visitors in North Texas will soon be able to enjoy all the oinktastical adventures the new Peppa Pig theme park at North Richland Hills has to offer. Merlin Entertainment, the company that partnered with Hasbro to operate the park, revealed what rides and attractions are headed our way in an announcement on Dec. 5, 2023.
Much like the Universal Studios theme park coming to Frisco in 2026, the new Peppa Pig theme park is aimed at preschool children. The park will encourage children to safely explore the world of Peppa through interactive rides and themed playgrounds where they will find their favorite characters from the show.
“Every corner of the charming new park is crafted with preschoolers in mind, from their first roller coaster rides and fairground games with the whole family to a pedal path adventure built just for kids, and a colorful splash pad that celebrates "muddy puddles" jumping fun!” said Merlin Entertainment in a statement. “Families will snort, giggle and create their first theme park memories together with Peppa and her friends.”
When the parks open in 2024, guests will find five new rides and a combination of 10 play spaces and attractions.
- Daddy Pig's Roller Coaster: Perfect for a first roller coaster experience, this ride will provide family-friendly thrills.
- Peppa Pig's Balloon Ride: This colorful aerial carousel ride offers amazing views of the whole park.
