According to the Orlando Sentinel, Rex Jackson, who is the Managing Director for Legoland Parks in North America, shared the following at the news conference at the IAAPA Expo:

There are three components at play for the designation, starting with preplanning. On the website, there’ll be a lot of information for parents with autistic children to be able to identify the types of rides and attractions that are going to be suitable for the child. Upon arrival, as they go up to the individual rides, there’ll be signs that also provide autism information to those families looking for that information.

The third and probably the most important is actually going to be training the staff — a comprehensive training program to teach our puddle jumpers how to interact with families, autistic children and how to interact with the children themselves.

There will be six rides when Peppa Pig Theme Park opens. Daddy Pig’s Roller Coaster will be perfect for a child’s first coaster, but all riders will need to be at least 36 inches tall. Other rides include Grampy Rabbit’s Dinosaur Adventure, and Peppa Pig’s Balloon Ride.

Rides will also be wheelchair accessible. There will be play areas for children who are too small or too scared for the rides with height restrictions.

Peppa Pig Theme Park will be located right next to Legoland Florida Resort in Winter Haven, Florida. The Park is scheduled to open on February 24, 2022.

About Paula K

I grew up in Western Massachusetts. When I was nine my family went to Disneyland and I was hooked. I grew up, attended New England College in Henniker, NH and eventually moved to Virginia. I worked as a disc jockey, married and became a full time mom when our daughter was born. Fast forward several years. In 2010 we moved to Central Florida and my Disney obsession grew. I now work as a freelance writer and spend my spare time in the parks. Under the name Paula Brown I penned the novels Dream Wanderers and The Coffee Cruiser. I also am a co-author of Dining at Walt Disney World: The Definitive Guide. I'm obsessed with Star Wars, so this is a good time to live in Central Florida. I've been a vegetarian for well over a decade, a choice that my daughter eventually made as well. While my husband still hasn't joined us fully he has given up most meats except for seafood. I was relieved to find that vegetarian dining is not difficult at Walt Disney World.
