Can we do everything at Peppa Pig Theme Park in less than one hour? And will five-year-old Nora ride Daddy Pig’s Roller Coaster? Keep reading to find out or watch the video below if you prefer.
Located adjacent to Legoland Florida, Peppa Pig Theme Park is a 4.5 acre standalone theme park intended for preschoolers. Our LEGOLAND Florida ticket package purchased during a Black Friday sale included admission to Peppa Pig Theme Park so we decided to check it out. On Friday, February 17th, Legoland Florida opened at 10am and Peppa opened at 9am, so our plan was to try to do everything at Peppa Pig land in under an hour so we could get back to Legoland at rope drop.
The official website advertises 16 rides and attractions but only five of them are amusement park style rides. We walked over to the park from our stay in the Lego Pirate hotel. We were about the 3rd family to enter the park right at 9am.
First, the kids had to jump on and take a lap around the Pedal Bike Tour. Next, it was onto the first actual ride, Grampy Rabbit’s Dinosaur Adventure. This is the same type of ride as Royal Joust over at Legoland. but this might be the superior version. The kids love these pony trek rides by Metallbau Emmeln, especially the similar one at Dollywood.
That’s one ride down, four to go. Peppa Pig Theme Park opened in 2022, a year later and everything still looked shiny and new. We walked through the Pirate Island Sand Play area on the way to the pirate boat ride.
Next it was on to Peppa Pig’s Balloon Ride to get an aerial view of the miniature park on the 3rd ride of the day. Alright, it’s 9:30am, we’ve got thirty minutes left.
My kids don’t like drop tower style rides, so we skipped Mr Bull’s High Striker. Then we enjoyed the fun fair area that includes free games to play. After a quick look around the gardens and playground area, it was time for the moment I’d been waiting for: Daddy Pig’s Roller Coaster.
Built by Zamperla, Daddy Pig’s Roller Coaster features a tire driven lift and mid ride launch. It’s much more fun and interesting than your average kiddie coaster. Definitely an upgrade over Zamperla’s Gravity 80STD coasters like Whistle Punk Chaser at Dollywood.
You get to do two laps but that’s one additional coaster credit for me and number 268 overall, still last in the race for 300.
And with that, it was 9:45am: we did a lap around the park, rode four out of the five actual rides and decided to head over to Legoland. We’re definitely not the target audience, I would say Peppa Pig Theme Park is best for young kids, maybe 3 to 5 years old who had never visited a theme park before. It’s like a community rec center with a few amusement rides thrown in. Peppa Pig theme park would be a good first amusement park for your child if they’ve never experienced one before. Hopefully this will help you gauge how much time you need to visit Peppa Pig Theme Park.
Stay tuned for the next stop on our adventure, Legoland Florida.
