Peppa Pig Theme Park Opening As A Certified Autism Center February 24th
When Peppa Pig Theme Park opens on February 24, 2022 in Winter Haven (adjacent to LEGOLAND Florida) the entire resort (including Legoland Florida) will be a certified Autism Center accredited by The International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards (IBCCES), which involves the entire staff undergoing a rigorous training in order to provide families with individuals with autism a fun and inclusive experience.
“In addition to staff training, IBCCES is conducting an in-depth review of the new park to develop a detailed sensory guide,” leaders described. “This guide features a review of every attraction by providing insight on how a child with sensory processing issues may be affected by each of the five senses. This will create a comprehensive planning tool that will provide the information needed to make it easier for parents and families to plan activities that satisfy their child’s specific needs and accommodations.” Peppa Pig Theme Park's comprehensive accessibility and sensory guides will be available on the park's website and will also be available as a hard copy at the entrance to the park if needed.
Peppa Pig Theme Park is aimed at preschoolers but promises to be fun for the entire family and will host six rides, one of the attractions is the all-new Peppa Pig’s Balloon Ride.
“Guests will enjoy the ride from whimsical baskets, crafted to look like a hot air balloon and are specially designed to allow children who use wheelchairs to roll on to the ‘balloon basket’ without needing to transfer from their wheelchairs,” leaders said in a news release. “Merlin Entertainments’ creative and project delivery team, Merlin Magic Making, along with the ride manufacturers at Technical Park worked closely to develop this adaptation to a fan-favorite ride to ensure more children could experience it safely along with a grownup, or adult companion.”
The park also features rides including Daddy Pig’s Roller Coaster, Grampy Rabbit’s Dinosaur Adventure, Grandad Dog’s Pirate Boat Ride, Mr. Bull’s High Striker, and Peppa's Pedal Bike Tour.
Peppa Pig Theme Park will also include numerous attractions with many based on iconic scenes from the Peppa Pig television series including George's Fort, Grandpa Pig's Greenhouse, George's Tricycle Trail, Madame Gazelle's Nature Trail, Muddy Puddles Splash Pad, Mr. Potato's Showtime Arena, Peppa Pig's Treehouse, Pirate Island Sand Play and Rebecca Rabbit's Playground.
Although Merlin Entertainments has numerous Peppa Pig experiences for fans to enjoy across the world including Peppa Pig World situated at Paulton's Park in the UK, Peppa Pig Theme Park is the first time Peppa and her friends will have a whole theme park all to themselves anywhere in the world.
