There’s Oinktastic news from Peppa Pig Theme Park and Merlin Entertainment: a second Peppa-themed park will be opening in 2024, this time in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
Florida’s Peppa Pig Theme Park opened in 2022, and just recently celebrated its first birthday. This family-friendly park offers rides, food, characters, shows, playgrounds, shaded spaces, Autism certification, and air-conditioned spaces.
“Merlin’s platform and reach continues to grow in the U.S. as we build on the success of the world’s first standalone Peppa Pig Theme Park in Florida,” said Chief Executive Officer of Merlin Entertainments Scott O’Neil. “Given the incredible success of our Legoland Discovery Center and Sea Life Aquarium in Grapevine, Texas, the North Richland Hills community was a natural next step in our expansion and rollout.”
Designed as the “ultimate theme park experience for little ones”, the all-new standalone Peppa Pig Texas theme park will be located in North Richland Hills, and will feature multiple rides, interactive attractions, themed play scapes, and shows, all based on recognizable locations from the globally-popular brand. Families will also meet Peppa and her friends as they snort, giggle, and play.
“The success of the Peppa Pig Theme Park has been phenomenal, and we are excited to embark on the journey again with our friends at Merlin to bring another park to the city of North Richland Hills, Texas,” said Matt Proulx, vice president Location Based Entertainment at Hasbro. “Adding another Peppa Pig Theme Park for fans to experience continues our Blueprint 2.0 strategy of offering more meaningful ways for families to engage with our brands. We cannot wait for more guests to create lifelong memories with Peppa and her friends.”

Universal Parks & Resorts also announced an upcoming Texas theme park. This park will be smaller than Universal Studios Florida or Universal Studios Hollywood and will be more focused on young children than the existing U.S. parks.
