If splashing in muddy puddles, having tea with Peppa and going for a wild car ride with Daddy Pig sounds like the perfect day for your little ones, there will soon be an entire theme park for that.

Peppa Pig Theme Park, the world’s first Peppa Pig theme park, has announced that its grand opening in Winter Haven, Fla. will take place on Feb. 24, 2022.

The theme park, located on the same property as Legoland Florida Resort, will offer Peppa-themed rides, play spaces and activities, all designed with preschoolers in mind. Guests of the new park can expect rides like Daddy Pig’s Roller Coaster, a curvy ride along a “short cut” through town in Daddy Pig’s red car, and Peppa Pig’s Balloon Ride, a hot air balloon ride with a snort-worthy view from the top.

In addition to six themed rides, the park will include play spaces — like a Muddy Puddles Splash Pad — as well as a cinema where kids can take a break and watch episodes of Peppa Pig on the big screen. And, as with any good Peppa adventure, there will be forts, trails, treehouses and playgrounds to explore, in addition to character meet-and-greets with Peppa and her friends.

Plans to build the standalone theme park were initially announced in February. While Peppa Pig World, an attraction within a waterpark in England, has been open since 1983, Peppa Pig Theme Park will be the first fully Peppa-themed theme park property in the world.

Legoland Florida is already home to a theme park and water park, though admission to Peppa Pig Theme Park will require a separate ticket. Both park tickets and annual passes to Peppa Pig Theme Park are now available for purchase as the park’s opening date approaches.
