Peppa Pig and family are getting their own Theme Park early next year. Some great news about the new Park was shared at the IAAPA Expo in Orlando. Peppa Pig Theme Park is going to be a certified autism center.
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.
