If you have a pre-schooler at home, you probably already know all about Peppa Pig, the adorable TV show for little kids. And now your pre-schooler can step right into Peppa’s world at the all-new Peppa Pig Theme Park in Winter Haven, Florida, located right next to another one of the Sunshine State’s toddler-friendly amusement parks for kids, LEGOLAND Florida.
The World’s First Peppa Pig Theme Park
The new Peppa Pig Theme Park was created with preschoolers in mind. That means the attractions are all fairly tame compared to the Orlando theme parks like Disney and Universal, and height requirements are either very low or non-existent on some rides. There’s also plenty of space for little ones to run around and burn some energy, and of course plenty of kid-friendly dining options to enjoy.
If you’re planning a trip to the Peppa Pig Theme Park in Winter Haven, Florida, here’s everything you need to know.
Peppa Pig Theme Park Attractions
When you enter the Peppa Pig Theme Park through its rainbow entryway, you can expect to enjoy a day of fun and excitement with a dozen unique attractions based on characters and locations from the Peppa Pig TV show. Many of the attractions are actually interactive kids play areas, including a tricycle trail and themed playgrounds.
Families looking to play games together will want to head to the Fun Fair, where everyone can try their hand at fair-style games like ring tosses and knocking cans off a shelf. When it’s time to chill out and take a break from the action, head inside to the Cinema, where the bean bags are big enough for the entire family. While enjoying the air conditioning, families can watch episodes of Peppa Pig on a large screen. This is a great spot to visit after lunch or if your kids need a break from all of the action outside.

Be sure to pack your swim suit because Peppa Pig Theme Park has its very own splash pad and sand area, too. The Muddy Puddles Splash Pad is a great spot to cool off with fountains and slides surrounded by the show’s signature muddy puddles. At Pirate Island Sand Play, located close to the splash pad, kids can build sand castles and dig around to find buried treasure.

Peppa Pig Rides with Height Requirements
Kids 34 inches or taller can hop on the back of a dinosaur on Grampy Rabbit’s Dinosaur Adventure and ride around to see larger-than-life dinos up close.
The minimum height requirement is 34 inches at Mr. Bull’ s High Striker, too. On this Peppe Pig theme park ride, your family will lift straight up to the sky and then glide back to the ground.
Children taller than 36 inches can take their first roller coaster ride on Daddy Pig’s Roller Coaster. After walking through Peppa’s House you’ll go out to the yard to take a ride in Daddy Pig’s new red car. With Daddy Pig in the driver’s seat families will zoom over the track twice before being dropped back off to inevitably get back in line again.

Dining at Peppa Pig Theme Park
When it’s time for a bite to eat, the only spot in the park to do so is Miss Rabbit’s Diner. The adorable ’50s themed restaurant has booths, tables, and plenty of outdoor seating. The restaurant serves up kid-friendly options like cheese pizza and grilled cheese. Adults can enjoy more elevated entrees like a smoked brisket sandwich or a rice-and-veggie bowl topped with chicken.

Entertainment and Live Events
Throughout the day, families can relax on oversized bean bags at Mr. Potato’s Showtime Arena, where shows featuring Peppa and her little brother George are screened throughout the day. The shows are interactive and kids will want to sit as close to the stage as possible to have the best seats. Kids who want to meet Peppa and George are in luck, because the sister and brother duo come out for meet-and-greets all day too.
Tickets and Annual Passes
Tickets and annual passes can be purchased online or at the entrance of the park. There’s a small discount for tickets that are bought in advance ($30.99 compared to the day-of price which starts at $34.99). Two-day tickets and annual passes are also available. Annual passes to Peppa Pig Theme park also include parking at LEGOLAND Florida.

Tips for Visiting Peppa Pig Theme Park
Outside food and drink is permitted at Peppa Pig Theme Park, so if you have a picky child you can bring their favorite snacks inside the park with you.
Because there’s a splash pad at Peppa Pig Theme Park, you’ll want to bring a change of clothes or swimsuits for your kids. The bathrooms at Peppa Pig Theme Park are plenty big enough to change in before and after jumping in the Muddy Puddles Splash Pad.
I recommend spending at least half a day at Peppa Pig Theme Park during slower months, and a whole day during the busier summer months.
