(eap) Merlin Entertainments has announced first details of the new PEPPA PIG Park, which is scheduled to open 2024 in Günzburg, Bavaria, in the immediate vicinity of LEGOLAND® Deutschland Resort. A total of five rides and seven different themed playgrounds will immerse visitors in the world of Peppa Pig. The highlight among the attractions will be a family-friendly “Papa Wutz” roller coaster, which is designed to offer even the youngest guests a fun roller coaster experience. With Papa Wutz at the wheel of his red car, little guests whiz through two laps of an exciting but child-friendly track. 

“At Peppa Pig Park in Günzburg, the focus is on families with preschool children. We are creating a place where our youngest visitors can experience wonderful moments with the world’s favorite little pig, Peppa Wutz. All attractions and experiences will be designed to meet the needs and preferences of our youngest guests,” explains Manuela Stone, General Manager of Legoland Deutschland Resort. “A very special experience for our guests will be to join Papa Wutz, climb into Peppa’s beloved red car and whiz along the roller coaster track with him. Children know Peppa Wutz and her stories from television. Starting in 2024, they can become part of this Peppa world themselves with us and have their own unforgettable Peppa experiences.”

Following the first standalone Peppa Pig park in Florida, USA, the theme park opening in 2024 marks Merlin Entertainment’s tenth collaboration with HASBRO’s Peppa Wutz IP.

“We are delighted that Hasbro has once again trusted us to bring Peppa Wutz to life – this time in Europe’s first Peppa Pig Park in Günzburg. Since our partnership with Hasbro in 2017, we have been constantly creating new opportunities for children to learn and play. This park will join our existing five Peppa Pig World of Play attractions stretching from China to the United States, the Peppa Wutz themed lands at our resort theme parks, Gardaland and Heide Park, and the Peppa Pig Park in Florida. We are building this Peppa Pig Park right next to Legoland® Deutschland Resort. We are thus following our vision of establishing brand-oriented leisure attractions at key tourist locations worldwide. As a result, our guests can expect a diverse selection of attractions and activities that will turn their short vacations into unforgettable experiences. We look forward to welcoming you to the park and joining you in welcoming Peppa Wutz, Schorsch Wutz, Susie Schaf, Rebecca Hase and all their enchanting friends to Germany,” said Scott O’Neil, CEO of Merlin Entertainments. ■
