Peppa Pig World gains new rides

Entertainment One (eOne) is expanding Peppa Pig World with the addition of two new rides.

Paulton’s Park theme park based in Hampshire, UK, will feature The Queen’s Flying Coach Ride and Grampy Rabbit’s Sailing Club, which will open to the public on May 16th, 2018.

“This is a very exciting announcement for Paultons Park. Peppa Pig World continues to be very popular and attracts huge numbers of visitors from all over the world in the six years since its opening,” said Stephen Lorton, commercial director of Paultons Park.

“A magical aspect of the expansion is that the Queen’s Flying Coach Ride offers panoramic views of Peppa Pig World and the Park beyond.”

The Queen’s Flying Coach Ride will take guests on a tour around the extended area of Peppa Pig World in individual coaches on a monorail.

Meanwhile, parents and kids will be able to jump aboard boats at the Grampy Rabbit’s Sailing Club where fans can cruise along the new water route and discover Pirate Island.

Katie Rollings, head of UK licensing at eOne, added: “We are delighted to work with Paultons Park on the expansion of the ever-popular Peppa Pig World.

“Paultons Park offers families the opportunity to fully immerse themselves into the world of Peppa Pig and since opening in 2011, it has become an instrumental part of this beloved brand.”

In addition to the rides, the park has also opened a dedicated baby care centre and a catering outlet, dubbed The Queen’s Kitchen.
